There are plenty of reasons to connect with your BFFs for a girls’ night out: it’s your birthday, you just received a promotion, you’re getting married (or maybe divorced), or simply because life is short and, well, YOLO. Who really needs a reason to have a blast while you still can?
Considering this, here are three tips to help you make your next girls’ night out fabulous, fun and unforgettable:
Rent a Party Bus
A party bus is an elegant — make that decadent — “club on wheels.” If you think they’re big on the outside, wait until you take a peek within: there’s a fully stocked bar, entertainment center, and plenty of room to chill. Frankly, you don’t even need to go anywhere special. You can have the driver whisk you and the girls around, and the door-to-door pick up and drop off means that nobody has to worry about taking a cab. Let the fun begin!
No, I’m not talking Monopoly or gin rummy here. There’s a whole category of adult-themed games that are perfect for a girl’s night out (or make that girl’s night in). And yes, since you’re thinking it I’ll go ahead and say it: you can definitely make alcohol part of the game plan, which guarantees that before long someone is going to do or say something totally outrageous. What’s not to love?
Art + Wine = “Why Haven’t We Been Doing This for Years?”
If the idea of heading out with the girls to an art workshop or paint-your-own pottery studio sounds about as exciting as watching paint dry: think again! Many of these places feature “ladies nights” where fun-seeking women like you and your clique can head out to express your creative side, and drink some wine (or make that lots of wine). Honestly, the only regret you’ll have is that haven’t been doing this together for years. Oh well, it’s always a good time to start a new tradition!
The Bottom Line
Why settle for a boring, predictable movie, or subject yourself to yet another club experience — where instead of smooth and classy George Clooney and Ryan Gosling types, you’re likely to wind up dancing next to “Mr. My Wife and I Have an Understanding” or “Mr. My Mom Thinks I’m a Real Catch.” Life is short and as it gets longer, the opportunities for excitement tend to wane (although more seniors these days are bungee jumping and sky diving, so there’s that to look forward to!). Until then, however, you can use the tips above to have a fabulous, fun and forgettable girls’ night out. Enjoy!
