"I was just in Los Angeles for a 3-day solo vacation over MLK weekend. One thing I wanted to do was make it a bit of a spa sampler as it's winter and good men's spas don't really exist in the Midwest. I went…"
"Yeah, I had the idea when I read the comics because a lot of real world locations were used in the books. Because of that, my interest was piqued in Toronto's coolness... and then there's also Nirvana the Band the Show."
"A Scott Pilgrim tour might be one of the coolest ideas I've ever heard. If you seriously do this and want some company, or someone to go halves hotel/rental car. you let me know. I've never actually tried a banya/jimmijab, but i'd be…"
"I'm going to be in Kansas City Mo for vacation with my husband. We live about 100 miles from there. Does anyone know of a Spa there that they could recommend. I want a place I can get a scrub -has many pools to soak in - steam…"
"Just don't be like one of those guys that makes things worse for himself by wearing swim trunks in the spa. Seriously. We're all guys here. No need to be embarrassed or ashamed of how you look. You'd miss out on a fully relaxing and…"
"Drew, there's really no rule book out there. The first time I went to a banya, I was a bit hesitant myself. Sweatlodge is a great place to try it out. Everyone was really helpful. I think the regulars knew it was my first time, and gave me…"
"I have been to a place called Red Square in Chicago (formerly called Division St. baths), which, from what I have heard, is very similar to the Sweatlodge, except Red Square has a separate woman's facility as well. Mostly Russian was spoken…"
"You can find "Onsen" everywhere in Japan. When I was growing up there as a kid, we took a trip to Hakodate and enjoyed bathing and relaxing there. Although in reality, its hard to go wrong with a bath house in Japan. …"
"I will have to second Everything that Stephen has said about the Chicago Sweatlodge. I frequent this place at least once a month, and I went for the first time about a year ago. It is a rare to find a place where it is perfectly normal to be barely…"
"Thank you. This photograph is part of my series on manliness. I was definitely inspired by this website and try to incorporate this kind of stuff into my photography in general. Im glad it invokes some feeling. "
"Incidentally, it drives my wife mad that I very much avoid rating/evaluating things. I don't know why, but I just relish being or savoring things. To rate the bite of food, the work of art, the outing, the anything just seems to make it more…"
"I've always had difficulty with such questions, as I really dislike rating/categorizing such. I somehow feel that doing so decreases from the value of other events. Additionally, I have a very difficult time comparing events as I feel they are…"
"I pretty much agree with all of this.
Another thing to add is that some of my best days didn't seem like it at the time but now I think back and wish I could relive every moment.
I recall one late summer/early fall day. I think I actually…"
"I actually like the round next myself, but what I think is more important is how the shirt fits on the arms. A tighter shirt around the shoulders and arms is what I look for and it is more important in accenting the upper body"
