Girls Spa Day, Rainy Days

Ask the Yenta
Dear Yenta, So my birthday is coming up next month – and I think I want to do something with just my girlfriends. Where’s a place we could go to get some inexpensive spa services, and then maybe a cute lunch? I was thinking maybe one of those Korean day spas, but I’m not sure all my friends would be up for the nudity. I kinda want to be pampered, but the cost is a huge issue for almost everyone who will be invited, so it has to be someplace where we could do little services that are a good deal. What do you think? Does anyplace come to mind”

Yeah, I’d probably stay away from the “all nude” spas. Personally, I know I don’t want to be walking around anywhere nude! And perhaps many of your girlfriends feel the same way…

Alright – so I’m just going to throw out a few ideas.  These many not fit the exact request but they offer some fun treats – and the price is right!
