A $20 non-refundable donation is required to attend. (Pumping) Iron Chef is the perfect combination of America’s two most popular pastimes, bodybuilding and cooking! Geoff and Rog will screen and offer inspired commentary over a certain legendary Arnold Schwarzenegger documentary AND host a friendly competition of Ninja home cooks to see who can provide the best dish featuring everyone’s favorite iron-loaded ingredient, spinach! Special prizes will be awarded for the best spinach dishes. Sign up on MINDBODY.
- Broadway Bares Bingo with Geoffrey “Mr. Wonderful” Hemingway on Saturday, June 2 at 6pm at MFF Bowery (161 Bowery).

Mark Fisher Fitness is one of New York City’s most unconventional gyms. Since being founded by Mark Fisher and Michael Keeler in 2011, MFF has grown from a single personal trainer to a staff of 25, over 1,000 members, and two studios in midtown Manhattan and on the Lower East Side. With a reputation as the fitness home of choice for the Broadway community, MFF has been featured in Forbes, the New York Times, the New York Post, the Wall Street Journal, NY1, and more. The MFF model has made waves in the fitness industry for its unprecedented growth, industry-leading results, and unique take on fitness. Living their mantra of “ridiculous humans, serious fitness,” MFF provides progressive training and nutrition protocols in a delivery system of subversive humor, fantastical imagery, and outrageous antics. They also inexplicably talk about unicorns, call their clients Ninjas, and treat fun, community, and personal growth as core values.
