Mix it up a bit and do something else this weekend than hitting the usual bar; here is a handful of fun ideas to give you energy for the week ahead.
Find Fun Free Events
When you’d like to be out and about, but your wallet says no, search the web for everything free that you can do together. That’s the great thing about finding stuff to do in the city with your friends - you’ll have fun no matter what you do. Make a list of everything free you’d like to do and give everyone a chance to pick something. Most likely, you won’t have time to do everything, so select a few main options and some alternative ones.
Some cities offer tourist attractions free of charge once a year to the residents of the city, and this is too good an offer to not take advantage of. Gather your group and make it a girls-day-out when your man opts out of visiting reptile parks or those dusty museums only you and your best friends still find interesting. Roam the city in peace and round it all off by cooking dinner together in the evening; it’s so cheap and a lot of fun.
When you have a bit of extra money to treat yourself but would like to have a bit left at the end of the night, try to mix up the cost-effective options with more expensive alternatives. Enjoy a dinner at home for free and look at a limo service here to arrive in style like never before.
Wine or Beer Tasting
The best of friends know how to save money together. If you all like to have a drink or two but prefer to keep it classy, say no to the expensive wine tasting tours and host one at home instead. Tell each one to bring a bottle with or hit the shop and pick up a few cheap-ish ones. The point is to get through the tasting and give each type of wine a set of stars or a review, trying to stay as critical with the last bottle as you were with the first.
You can adjust this idea to suit any taste; my girlfriends are into beer and use Untappd to rate different types for fun. Just remember to adjust the amount of tasting to what types of beverage you’re rating; while we drink a bottle of beer before rating it, it won’t quite work as well if you’d like to host a whiskey tasting party. Have a look at these glasses, by the way, to add to your collection before the girls night out.
You’ll have a great time when you do something together that you all enjoy - and what’s better than spending time with your best friends? What you enjoy doing varies from group to group and there’s certain things you just have a lot more fun doing with your girlfriends than anyone else.
