Still looking for a killer workout to sweat out all that post-Fourth of July weekend junk food? Look no further than Ruschmeyer's 45-minute People's Bootcamp exercise class. With classes in Montauk on Saturdays and Brooklyn during the workweek (early enough so that you can hit the class and still make it to work on time) and a post-workout breakfast, this bootcamp is just what we need to kick-start our days.

What foods come to mind when you think of Brooklyn? Probably something containing the words "organic," "local," and "free-range." Fast food chain Denny's has other plans, however — they've added a new Brooklyn-inspired dish to their menu, made up of none other than... spaghetti and meatballs. (F'ed in Park Slope)
