Formerly of Thai Massage

I went out north to have some pho and noticed the massage place in the same strip was all closed. I was told the owner opened up a restaurant but no one knew where it was. By some slim chance does anyone here know where the owner went?

  1. It seems only logical that the unknown owner of an unknown massage place next to the unknown restaurant that serves pho went on to open an unknown restaurant!

      squertz - that was funny. I did a fair amount of giggling. Still giggling now.

      However, is it possible that singlemalt was talking about Foot Relax? I almost went the other day - Chinatown Center..........there's pho nearby.Let's sleuth this MF (the post). But the title was "Thai Massage," which is specific, but I can't find anything by yahoo'ing.

        The closet I could figure was Midnight Cowboy Oriental Massage and Mekong River Restaurant (serves pho). They're both "north" of river and in the same strip...


        1. re: sqwertz

          I think that Midnight Cowboy is now some cocktail bar that has that thing where there's no sign. There's some sort of passcode. Oh, plus, human fire hydrants and screaming babies in Mozart wigs. I think that it is run by Tranny Oakley.

            It's a bar, but it still has the other "services" as well.

          Oh, it's all good. You had the clue in the title, and I think that sqwertx didn't pick up on it. Please keep posting - you are a great resource.

            Still don't get it <shrug>. And how come nobody can spell my name (and initials) right? I get this on all the forums, in Facebook, and on Usenet. FoodForModerators: combo Luby's and Fuddruckers opening up on Slaughter near first. New Mexican grocer at First and Ben White, and another smaller one at First and Dittmar (the later of which is open already).
