​Equator Coffees & Teas‘ two Mill Valley shops are hosting a pair of great events this month that seek to get you pumped for the outdoors.

The first, set for Wednesday, Jan. 25 at Equator downtown (2 Miller Ave.), is a book signing by Life of a Triathlete author Meredith B. Kessler, whose tome is loaded with “content triathletes can use for their own self improvement in a sport where quality information in a concise manner is hard to corral and utilize.” Equator will serve up free cookies and gluten-removed beverage Sufferfest beer, while Kessler will be signing books from 6-8pm and will have copies of the book available to buy.

One night later at 6pm, Equator at Proof Lab in Tam Junction hosts a film screening of Shades of Winter’s Between, the latest film by Austrian pro skier and filmmaker Sandra Lahnsteiner who continues to redefine women in action sports movies since her first release in 2010. The film tracks the adventures of some of the world’s finest female athletes, including for the first time America’s Olympic Gold medallist Julia Mancuso, on a journey that takes them from the slopes of a volcano in Hawaii to the white-knuckle ride down an Alaskan giant.

The screening will be outside Equator’s Proof Lab cafe, so attendees are encouraged to dress warmly as it might be chilly. Prior to the film, Lululemon will be hosting a meditation with Bex Urban, and ticket holders get a seat for the meditation and film and free gluten-removed Sufferfest beer and movie snacks like popcorn and cookies. MORE INFO & TIX.
