There’s no bigger advocate of unplugging and recharging and sleeping for at least seven hours a night than HuffPost Publisher Arianna Huffington. She’s bringing that philosophy to the party conventions.
HuffPost and its partners will have a space set aside at the RNC and DNC for the “harried, sleep-deprived” delegates, credentialed journalists and bloggers to get a little R&R. “The Oasis,” as they’re calling it, will feature yoga classes, facials, makeup refreshers and, of course, sleep consultation. We can hardly wait to see FNC’s Ed Henry and Bret Baier doing downward dogs, and PBS’s Gwen Ifill basking in the relaxation of an avocado mask.
“The Oasis is designed to demonstrate that even during the most hectic days of the political season, we can unplug and recharge for a little while and be able to get back to our convention activities rested and re-energized,” says a release. How holistic sounding.
Time and location for the RNC’s Oasis:
Monday, August 27 – Thursday, Aug. 30; 7AM – 12AM
Aja Channelside, 290 South Meridian Avenue, Tampa, FL 33602
For the DNC:
Monday, September 3 – Thursday, Sept. 6; 7AM – 12AM
Flex and Fit Gym, 550 South Tryon Street, Charlotte, NC 28202
