Lena Dunham Celebrated Her 26th Birthday At Spin Class

Birthday parties, like bachelorette parties and baby showers, oftentimes are more of a pain (for guests) than a source of joy. After splitting a $1K brunch bill, finding yourself squashed between two distant cousins of the birthday girl's on a party bus to Atlantic City, and then taking your first post-college Jello shot, and having to repeat that nearly every month, ad infinitum….it all gets a little old.
With that in mind, we have to say, Lena Dunham, we appreciate you thinking out of the box, but think of the guests, please! For her 26th birthday, the Girls creator took her friends to spin class at NYC's Soul Cycle, an enlightening, transformative workout (if you can avoid passing out).

For $34 each, birthday guests were treated (ha!) to a 45-minute, 500 calorie-burning workout. Wearing a Stella McCartney top and a sparkling tiara, Lena probably gave her birthday guests a party they've never been to before... and with burning glutes and the opportunity to see a sweaty Max Greenfield, the party favors was definitely a mixed bag.
