KING SAUNA in Fort Lee, New Jersey


If I knew how to add a picture (I will ask my son, but maybe if I look sufficiently I could figure it out) I could show you this place, one of the 100 places I LOVE the most (maybe there are more) in the New York vicinity. King Sauna in Fort Lee (if you go to their site you will find a $12 off coupon. It’s $40 without the coupon for 24 hours. Really) is one of those DONT MISS THIS UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES places. For a million reasons. Not the least of which is the mandatory prison-like outfit (pink for women, men have their own color) ¬†which is part of the day. I’ve never been there for 24 hours but I intend to. It’s got miracle saunas of every sort, wonderful hot tubs full of beautiful women of every age and shape and country. Large pink couches abound, and it is possible to lie on tatami mats with ginger masques and talk to a friend or two for hours on end. A mugwort PROCESS that is not describable in these pages (though I could tell you all personally) was administered by a woman named NAN. It’s $20 for 40 minutes, and features an enormous pink garbage bag like sack that we all wore. I have a picture that I may be able to show you.
