If you're planning to shop downtown this weekend, chances are you won't be breezing lazily from store to store. Luckily, we just caught wind of a shopping break that will take the edge off dealing with the masses and sprinting between stores—and leave you sober enough to drive home.
The Peppermint Foot Massage is now available at Rejuvenation Spa at the Renaissance Chicago Downtown Hotel—which is just a stone's throw from Macy's, Block 37, and the Christkindlmarket. The service includes hot, peppermint-infused towels that get wrapped and compressed around your tired tootsies. Then, your feet get massaged with a moisturizing, anti-inflammatory peppermint cream.Caveat: The minty treatment is a $25 add-on to any service, so—oh, well—it looks like you're going to have to get a massage or a facial, too.
