In February, I learned about Shecky’s Girls NightOut from my friends TB and SA, who attended with a impending snow forecast. Unfortunately I was not game to travel out in the inclement weather. In April as we were out celebrating SA’s birthday I learned that Shecky’s was coming back in July. For any advance tickets the goodie bags were discounted. The admission price for Shecky’s is $10 and typically the goodie bags are $20 however with early registration the bags were $10. I was so looking forward to our Jully 22nd hang out date.
The event is held in the Crystal Tea Room of the historic Wanamaker building in downtown Philly. Our plan was to meet to grab a bite before heading into the event. We decided on of the many Marathon Grill locations, which was a simple walk through the new Macy’s downtown over to Chestnut Street. I was pretty happy with my Marathon Burger and fries. I was already warned about the yummy cocktails at the event so I wanted to have a good meal before going in. When we arrived we had to check in and received our wristbands and goodie bag tickets.
The event is like being a kid in a candy store. Vendors are set-up with all things for girls such as clothing, jewelry, handbags, cosmetics, shoes, hair accessories, undergarments, teeth whitening ($100, don’t ask) and food. How could I forget the cocktails? My favorite was the X-Rated Pink Lemonade which is XRated Fusion Liquer with pink lemonade. All I can say is be responsible with these cocktails because honestly the cocktail tastes like pink lemonade.
After purchasing a necklace, two dresses and a cupcake from Cupcakes Gourmet it was time to call it a night. I definitely look forward to attending another Shecky’s Girls NightOut.
