Spring Spa Week

    spa weekIt’s that time of year again. The daffodils are in bloom, the sweet perfume of hyacinths lift us up on lowly Monday mornings … oh, but wait … this Monday morning, the hyacinths won’t be working alone. Enter Spring Spa Week!! Following the success of Restaurant Week, Spa Week enables the masses to take advantage of some of the finer things that this city, along with 21 others, have to offer. During Spa Week, however, we’re not focused on haute cuisine and fine dining. No, Spa Week is a time to revel in rubdowns, facials, mani/pedis, teeth whitening, laser hair removal, body wraps, and the like. And for $50 a pop, you can put your go-to spa on hold for a month – time to try someplace new. All five boroughs plus Westchester and NJ are participating (although pickings are extremely slim in the Bronx and Staten Island), so go to it. Just register with Spa Week and get your beauty on. Imagine a New York where every week was Spa Week, Restaurant Week, and Tax-Free Week? That would be divine. Well, if we could get our hands on a gold facial for $50, I suppose that would suffice.
