ROMAN HOLIDAY

The staff at The Spa takes your health seriously. Like Caesar, they want you to come in, so they can see what ails you and then they’ll conquer it. Comment.

KEEPING IT REAL

Partners Bonnie Thornton and Tamika Rivera (left to right) had a vision. They wanted to open a spa and shop in Williamsburg that catered to the spa needs of the people who lived in their neighborhood, forsaking the elitist ambiance of Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue spas, explained Thornton. With their own hands, and the hands of many friends, they converted their space at 115 Grand St. at Berry Street from the remains of an old Polish restaurant into Therapy spa and store. Comment.

TRANQUILITY BASE

Valentine’s Day, 2002. 5 am. Trudging out of the Downtown office of The Brooklyn Papers are the three remaining members of the production team. They’ve been on the job for about 19 hours, been awake for close to 21, and are now headed home to bed after a day and night of computer breakdowns, missed deadlines and utter pandemonium. Comment.

PILO TALK

Pilo Arts Day Spa & Salon is the place to go when you crave relaxation and need a new look. Comment.

GOT MILK?

If you’ve never treated yourself to a day at the spa, it is definitely time to start. Depending upon what you choose to have done, you will leave relaxed, well groomed and blissfully unaware that there is any difficulty in the world. Comment.

THE VIN AND THE YANG
