My lovely valentine arranged for me to have an actual girls' evening out on Monday. The dilemma? So many options, so little time. With mini-munchkins at home, Happy Hour is still a foreign concept to me. (Many happy hours, just not usually at the bar ...) And since some of the gal pals going with are preggers and therefore will only be partaking in the appetizer half of our bar-hopping, I want to make sure that we hits spots that have good, cheap eats as well as drinks. And there are so many spots downtown I have yet to hit -- do I hit old haunts, or try out new spots? Linger at one, or hop around? And if we play it by ear, where to start? I have a day to figure it out. Because while finding the biggest bang for the buck is nice, my and my pals' time is at a premium. I want to make every minute, or at least every other minute, count. Ready, girls? Let's paint downtown red -- or at least pink.
