I am so against people that hurt women, and children. I mean I’m against hurting anyone, but I’m particularly outspoken about anyone who commits a crime against someone who could be considered defenseless or weaker. Oh, I really despise that. All that being said, it was only natural that I would accept an invitation to attend this event.
This year marks the 15th celebration of Denim Day. For those of you who are not familiar with this event, here is what the folks over at Peace over violence say about it.
Our annual rape prevention and education campaign rally. Peace Over Violence asks community members, elected officials, businesses and students to make a social statement with their fashion statement and wear jeans as a visible means of protest against myths that surround sexual assault.
Close to 10 million people across the country participated in 2013. Depending on the nature of an event, I’ll ask one of my writers to attend on behalf of NYCTalking.com. This being an event that was geared towards a spa, I asked my wife to attend on our behalf. Following is a summary of her thoughts and experience.
I enjoyed this evening of beauty at Dasha spa. Even though the event was geared towards anti-violence, it wasn’t overwhelmingly so, I didn’t leave here depressed or angry about crimes committed against society.
The spa itself is located on the 5th floor at 115 East 57th Street, Suite 520. They can be reached at 212 755 5500, for appointments or to speak with a staff member.
Upon arriving you’ll notice that there is a nice waiting and reception area with a large TV. I received a very warm welcome from the staff, as did the other guests for the evening. The staff here made a great impression as they were extremely nice. I always wonder if this is genuine when you visit a place for a press event, but I think they are genuinely nice and care about patients and customers. This isn’t just a spa; they also have chiropractic services, and other form of health services.
One of the items that caught my attention was the thermo cycle, a device that helps your hips and joints with mobility and the sort. To appeal to our inner and external itch for beauty and pampering they had a small booth set up for manicures. Hmm. Manicures. They also had some other really cool workout equipment, like treadmills, pilates equipment, and so on. I was impressed by the spacious massage rooms, stretching tables, and the many services available here.
The evening was geared towards denim, so I’ll venture a guess that this is why there was so much “blue” here. For those of us that wanted a drink, or had some munchies, we were provided with some fine fair to indulge upon. Among these were blue drinks, as well as nonalcoholic drinks with blueberries. We also had blue corn tortilla chips! They should have played that song “blue” by Eiffel 65! (I love that song by the way ~Angel).
This was a great evening, with some nice people. If you are in need of any of their services, drop them a line. With so many places out there these days, some not so great, ahem….. It’s nice to see businesses reaching out to the community and trying to appeal to customers. Not to mention promoting and participating in an event that helps out some folks that may not be able to help themselves.
