If hanging out at the bar with the girls just doesn't happen these days, fear not.
There's a different kind of bar to sidle up to: the brand new Skin Bar at Beverly's the Spa on 4th.
Up to four of you can give yourselves a 30-minute mini-facial (cleanse, exfoliation, steam and masque) under the watchful eye of a skin consultant who selects your products, provides guidance and hands out hot towels while you catch up, just like the good old days.
Only this time you leave with a great new moisturizer...not some guy named Luigi.
$20 (redeemable toward products). At Beverly's the Spa on 4th, 604-732-4402, www.spaon4th.com
