Back in 2013 when Feetish Spa Parlor first hit the scene, business was S-L-O-W. Very few people knew Feetish existed, as it took time for word of mouth to travel and internet keywords to work their magic. Back in those days I had time. Time to sit in my office, time to make coffee in the Keurig for friends, and time to plot, plan and gossip. When a friend (new or old) was in the neighborhood, it wasn’t uncommon for them to stop by my office for a visit and a chat. It was also pleasantly common for multiple, unrelated friends to stop by during the same window of time — I’d introduce the newcomer to everyone else in the room, and the conversation would continue as if we’d all known each other for years. Now that business has taken off and I’m performing spa services daily (yay!), the visits have become less frequent, and (although I’m thrilled with and grateful for the business that allows me to pay my bills and eat) I’d be lying if I said I didn’t miss those chats and introductions every now and again.
Once, while I was hosting an impromptu gab session at Feetish, my friend Thom compared me to Dorothy Parker and my office setup to New York’s Algonquin Round Table. This was flattering to say the least — as my parlor furniture was procured primarily from the House of Target and my witticisms are usually bound to the realm of scatological humor — but I took the compliment to heart and filed it away for future reference.
Conveniently, the future is now! The time for chatting has returned! Only this time, through the use of 21st century technology, we can all relive each glorious gossip fest over and over from the comfort of our own homes. Enter The Downtown Round Table!
Held monthly (at the bare minimum), The Downtown Round Table will feature yours truly and one or two other folks who work and/or reside in Downtown Las Vegas. We’ll chat about stuff we hope you’ll find interesting, and we’ll upload each episode to the Feetish Spa Parlor YouTube channel. Please feel free to view, comment and share.
