My lady goes tanning sometimes and has to go to GPP for the closest place she could find to tan. Anyone know of a place in or around CBD she could go to?

You could just lay on top of one of the steaming manhole covers. Turn every two minutes. Six minutes to medium rare, ten for well done.

I am still driving to the burbs. I think they may have a stand up at the Riverplace Health Club, and there is supposed to be a place opening up at Wayne. I think that some of the workout rooms in some of the lofts around here might have them, not sure.
I am very pale right now. It is sad.

We are in the middle of January in Michigan. Why is it sad to be pale?

For certain obvious reasons there are just certain amenitities such as this that are going to be more difficult to find within the city of Detroit. It will make for an interesting turning point when a tanning salon opens.

More like, when a tanning salon successfully stays open! As I stated in a previous thread, we wanted to open a salon in midtown, but the demographic wasn't there (this was 5 years ago).

btw, I think there is a tanning bed in the Embassy Suites fitness center that you may be able to get in to. I know there was one 4 years ago....

I'm glad to be pale.

I always wait for the skin cancer fanatics.

There is no solid proof tanning ("fake" or real) causes skin cancer. Besides, it's not the tanning that causes skin cancer, it's the BURNING! I think if you read your literature they discuss "Over Exposure" as a main cause.

The way I look at it is, to each his/her own and everything with MODERATION! If you are smart and take care of your skin and don't burn, you can have very healthy and pigmented skin.

Premature aging of the skin is also an issue.
See link. Btw how does offering a different viewpoint make me a "fanatic"?

I am 50, never went to a tanning bed, never laid out in the sun, and had a basal cell carcinoma removed from my face in December. The scar is about 1-1/4 long for a spot less that 1/16. It did not look like anything remotely like cancer. So i would say it is up to you, but i would think twice.

Well as Chitaku said, he is trying to find a place for his lady friend (so don't critique him) and might as well keep the money in the D.

Having owned a tanning salon, I am used to people with an alternate PoV informing me that I am killing people by offering such a product. So, therefore I have grouped all people with an anti-tanning PoV as fanatics. If that incorrectly describes you, then I apologize. I am used to people feeling the need to inform me about things I have done years of research on, already and them telling me I am wrong. Anyway, bringing your different PoV is welcome.

Just a word of warning to the ladies (if you don't already know) try not to over-expose your chest to the sun. That's how you get the saggies because the skin there is thinner than most other places on your body and sun damage makes it even thinner.

And I don't think any of us want the saggies. :-)
