I blogged about previous about San Mei Rejuvenation Center in Uptown when the owner was running for US congress in the 3rd district.
Sadly, San Mei will soon be closing its doors. According to the San Mei website, in what appears to be some kind of a press release, the blame falls on the city of Minneapolis:
“Well, they say that you can’t fight City Hall.”
San Mei owner, Steev RamsDell lamented, “Because some self-serving bureaucrats forget that they are supposed to be public servants. They are supposed to see the big picture and work for the public good. Putting honest, hard-working people out of a job, especially now, is a cruel and dumb thing to do. I wonder if this is truly what the Mayor wants for his city?”
RamsDell says that at least until January 31st, San Mei Rejuvenation Centers in Uptown is still the best place to get the highest quality therapeutic massage in a warm, fun and friendly environment. “We are “The Safe Place” because we do not offer any kind of sexual activity. But that doesn’t mean we have to be clinically cold and sterile. If you prefer lots of TLC and VIP treatment from beautiful and talented therapists who will positively impact your mind, body and spirit, then come see us before it’s too late!”
A classified advertiser on CityPage’s Backpages is equally miffed:
SAN MEI CLOSING UPTOWN?! Say it ain’t so! After almost 3 years of wonderful service to the community, the City of Minneapolis Zoning Grinches pick now to put good people out of work?!
But don’t fret. Rejuvenation can still be found. RamsDell runs an Eden Prairie location called Planet Shikoku that he runs out of a strip mall behind a PDQ gas station at the corner of Valley View & Mitchell Rd.
