Juice bars are a little bit like cupcake shops, in that they’re trendy enough to keep on opening up around here, even if everybody we know is a little more hung up getting stuffed with boar ribs, goat poutine, IPAs, and alpaca burgers. And just like cupcakes, fresh juice even has its own celebrities, like nutritionist Kimberly Snyder, who gained fame for reducing the frame of Good Day L.A. host Jillian Barberie and has stars like Fergie and Drew Barrymore jocking her Beauty Detox Solution. On November 14, Snyder is opening her first smoothie shop, Glow, offering “wellness shots,” organic coffee and tea, detox cleanses, 100% organic smoothies, and cold-pressed juice to Melrose. Will it help turn our kind from greasy-fingered fat people into svelte starlets? Maybe, if only…um, well, no, probably not. But juice-heads will most likely be stoked on the spot.
Glow, 7473 Melrose Ave. West Hollywood.
