Girls Night FAQ

Q. Should the girls stay in or go out for Girls Night?
A. Both options offer equal potential. If you’re on a budget, staying in is much more affordable. Playing card games, watching movies, doing manicures while noshing on some homemade appetizers and drinking some good wine costs way less than going out. However, girls night can also take place at a park, museum, free concert or other equally affordable location.

Q. Does Girls Night have to take place at night?
A. No. Girls Night can also be a breakfast, brunch, or lunch date. Morning yoga with the girls followed by a pedicure and brunch sounds like the perfect way to start the weekend. How about an afternoon book club with wines to sip and delicious nosh? Another fun time with the girls might include going to an amusement park or arcade. Ride the scariest rides and have a scream fest together or get competitive and see who gets the highest score.
