Saturday night, I went out for a girl’s night. And let me just say, the next time any of these girls say they are too “tired” to party because they have “children” and “responsibilities,” I will not believe them. Every one of them stayed out later than I did. They’re animals.
Hopefully you can find me in that picture, because my mom thought three of them could have been me and wasn’t sure.
Anyway, I met up with the girls at the Embassy Suites downtown where they were all staying the night. And somehow, I became a personal hair dresser. (And picture stealer. Thanks, Michelle!)
After we hung out for a couple hours and had a few drinks from the hotel’s free happy hour, we made our way downstairs to the hotel shuttle. The girls got the hotel room downtown so we could easy walk everywhere, but we took the shuttle anyway because we are lazy.
Michelle wanted to stay hydrated for that 5 minute ride.
We were really tempted to get all Harvard Baseball team in the van and re-enact “Call Me Maybe” but realized we only knew the chorus. Or maybe that’s just me.
Instead, Jackie rocked out in the front seat and asked the driver awkward questions while Michelle sipped her drink next to the “no food or beverages” sign in the van.
Once we were dropped off at Church Street, we walked to The Rusty Spoon for dinner.
It should be noted that if you photo bomb other people, they will retaliate.
The Rusty Spoon is one of those places I’ve always heard about but never tried and it did not disappoint. I started with a Dark and Stormy (Gosling spiced rum, Gosling ginger beer, and lemon).
And really, I only ordered it because it said Gosling.
For dinner, I had The 55. They can call it a 55 all they want, but it’s a big ass burger that has bacon cooked in it and it is delightful.
I can’t take food pictures worth shit. Sorry about that. Just know it was delicious and all went in my belly.
Before we left dinner, we all had to make a pact not to make out with strangers or each other. Now, I’m not sure what kind of ladies nights these girls are used to that this had to be a verbal pact that everyone agreed to, but let’s just say that Kate didn’t keep her promise.
After dinner, we made our first stop at Rok Room. No cover and 2 for 1 drinks. Done.
Devon looking fabulous.
You’d think Kate was a blogger because she takes more pictures than Michelle and I combined. And she multitasks.
Our next stop was at Ember. We had some free drink tickets that kicked in after 11:00pm and they gave out a free drink ticket at the door. All those drinks ensured a lot of this happened.
Also, I want to give you an idea of what it’s like to go dancing with Michelle. It’s like this crazy tornado of arms you can’t tame.
Our last stop was at Finnhenry’s. It was super crowded and contained several d-bags, but was still fun. I was fading fast after we arrived, so I stayed for about 45 minutes and then caught a cab home while the rest of the girls went out for some late night food, including the most horrific hot dog I’ve ever seen. Check out Michelle’s recap of the night for that hot dog picture. It’s a treasure.
It was a fun night and I definitely need to hang out with those ladies more often.
