Last night, me and some of my girls went out on the town!
We went out to see 'Sex and the City 2', then in honor of the ladies in the movie, out for martinis, of course!
What a wonderful night.
Let's start with the movie review: I won't go so far as to title my review "SUCKS in the City," as one reviewer so rudely stated. But, as a true fan of the series, I can say that the movie was...meh. The fashion was outrageous and our favorite characters were their kooky selves. However, dare I say it...I was suddenly acutely aware that my beloved ladies are getting...old. All of their desert romps while wearing haute couture and 4-inch heels seemed even sillier somehow than they would have if the foursome were in their twenties.
Liza Minelli singing Beyonce's "All the Single Ladies" was, however, brilliant.
And the shoes...ah, the shoes. How I love the shoes.
All in all, an enjoyable movie. But my friend Beth may have said it best as we left the theater: "Is it okay if I hope there's not going to be a third one?" Word.
And speaking of getting old...
We were positively giddy about the thought of going out for drinks on trendy downtown Glenwood Avenue after the movie.
Now, this is something we used to do on a regular basis back in the day. But now, it's such a rare occasion, that you would have thought it was Christmas by the way we were acting. As a matter of fact, one woman, who watched as we asked the bartender to take our picture, asked if it was someone's birthday, because we must be celebrating something!
Celebrating delicious drinks, good friends, and a oh-so-rare night out with the girls, Sex and the City style.
