Check out the new Hu Holi collection from Adidas and Pharrell Williams.

The livestream event will take place at Holi Fest in Jaipur, India on March 2 and the collection will be released on March 16.
Watch Charles Barkley host Saturday Night Live.
While SNL cast member Kenan Thompson does a solid impersonation, there’s only one Sir Charles. On March 3, the outspoken NBA Hall of Famer and Inside the NBA analyst is set to make his fourth stint as a SNL host. If previous appearances are any indication, expect memorable roles like Chuck’s stone-faced rendition of Shaquille O’Neal.
Tune into What the Fit.
Comedian Kevin Hart has already proven he’s the fastest man on earth (by a technicality). Now, he’s putting his athletic prowess to work in a new weekly comedy fitness series for his Laugh Out Loud Network channel on YouTube. Quirky challenges—and the celebrity guests signed up to take them on—include sumo wrestling with Conan O’Brien and beer yoga with Chance the Rapper. The 15-episode show kicks off on March 8.
Attend a nutrition lecture by author Gary Taubes.
Investigative science and health journalist Gary Taubes, author of The Case Against Sugar, explores the villainization of sugar and fat in talks presented by Re-Find Health. A highlight of the two-day London-based event (taking place March 17 and 18) will be a six-course dinner with Taubes at the Putney restaurant, HomeSW15.
Listen in on A Conversation with Marion Nestle and Alice Waters.
Arguably two of the most eminent thought leaders on food politics today—Marion Nestle, author and professor emeritus at New York University and Alice Waters, owner of Chez Panisse and founder of the Edible Schoolyard Project—will convene for an elucidating discussion on the current state of our food system. The special lecture on March 19 is part of the 75th Anniversary UC Berkeley School of Public Health Dean’s Speaker Series.
See the exhibit "Like Life: Sculpture, Color, and the Body".
Seven hundred years of sculptural takes on the human body will be on display at The Met Breuer in New York City.
