It’s almost been a month since Sarah’s Bachelorette party, so I figured I better write about it now before it seems a million years ago. *If none of have you heard yet, I was the maid (matron of honor) so I was the party planner for the night. This was a lot of fun for me.
I was lucky enough to find a very authentic Italian restaurant in the west village named “Palma”. I thought this was an adorable place to eat considering it was Sarah’s soon to be last name! Dinner was excellent and everyone died at the name of the venue. Score!
Then we headed to Beauty and Essex, which is a cute little lounge on the LES. It is beautifully decorated so perfectly. It seemed like a very girly place to hang out after dinner. Oddly, there seemed to be hundreds of Eastern European male tourists about the city that night. They had lots of questions about an American bachelorette party.
Nevermind the horrible place I chose for dancing. I only chose it because it was within a few blocks of Beauty and Essex, and because it had a photobooth which I thought would be fun. But it was one of those terrible fake computery ones. The music was terrible and we were all sad. We left that place after about 15 minutes of stare-downs and bad music and someone telling me I “was way too tall by the way” and we went to Joshua Tree in Murray Hill for dancing. The DJ played whatever we wanted to dance to, and we basically ruled the place. Again, guy tourists everywhere. There were hardly any ladies out besides us, and Sarah being the “Betty” she is, had guys falling all over themselves to get a picture with her. She even got some serenading!
We dressed cute, danced silly and had a great night. It was fun going out with the girls, wearing a mini skirt and matching sparkly rings. Sarah and I used to go dancing so much in our single days, it almost felt like we were 22 again!
*I haven’t shut up about being the maid of honor for the past two years, so I’m sorry. Now that the wedding is over, I’ll probably stop soon. It seems likely at least.
