Date nights are all about connection and setting time aside for each other. But quality time isn’t just good for your relationship; it’s good for you and your besties, too. There is nothing like a good night out with the girls to cure just about anything that ails you! Laugh, let go, and make time for the important ladies in your life. Here are some fun ideas to inspire your next Boston Girls’ Night Out when you and your ladies just need some time to yourselves!
After a fun girls’ night out or just for its own sake, brunch is always a good idea with the ladies and calories don’t count when you are enjoying them catching up with friends. Try out The Gallows in the South End for some unique comfort food brunch items like Sunrise Poutine or Chicken and Pancakes. Splitting a coveted Blackbird Doughnut (or two) here at brunch is a must as well.
