Maybe we should back up a bit.
Here’s a curious development called Cold & Thirsty, a brisk new juice bar where you might opt to stick yourself in a human-size freezer that hits minus 240 degrees, opening Saturday in Culver City. (See the slideshow.)
You already know how to use the front part of this clean, bright juice bar. Approach the Z-shaped bar, grab a yellow stool and get something cold-pressed with pearl powder or habanero in it, depending on your needs. Or maybe some almond milk that tastes like mint chocolate chip ice cream. Or maybe not.
It’s what’s in back that’s pretty... different. That’s where the tall metal cylinder known as the cryosauna stands. The one LeBron loves, the one that purportedly heals injuries and boosts energy and burns up to 800 calories. Different, right?
All you need to do is make an appointment. Then, get naked and put on funny astronaut boots, gloves and a robe. Enter said cryosauna. Ditch said robe. Then endure minus 240 degrees for two to three minutes. Or as long as you can stand it.
The robe wouldn’t have helped much.
