After sharing our awesome experience at the Cat & Nat show, we felt like it was only fitting to continue the weekend with Part 2 of our Girls Trip.
The next two days were filled with fun, friends and lots of FOOD with some crazy stories and laughable moments in between!
The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly
It all started on a beautiful, sunny day in Philadelphia. Nine ladies up and at ‘em early Saturday morning (after a night of party bus shenanigans from Atlantic City, including a late night taste test of Geno’s vs Pat’s). It all ended with one of us face first on the streets of Philadelphia. Follow along on a weekend of good food, great friends, and what felt like an episode of "Punked"!
The Good: Food, Food, and More Food
Friday kicked off a fantastic lunch at Double Knot. Start off the weekend with cocktails, you ask? Don't mind if we do!
Off to Atlantic City for the evening, and we were not sad about it. Veracruz offered authentic Mexican dishes that I swear continued to be replenished all night.
Tip: Ask for seating near the window. The view of the ocean is beautiful!
We found just the right cafe for breakfast and much needed caffeine after our [almost] shady spa experience. Thank you Bluestone Lane for taking us in. It was the perfect spot to regroup and plan our day!
Next up ... lunch at Pietro's Pizzeria where the family tradition of great pizza has been passed down through generations, and still holding strong.
Before dinner we stopped for a cocktail at Giuseppe & Sons. The drinks were great and the atmosphere was super fun. We highly recommend stopping in!
Dinner at Ocean Prime was perfect -- the service was on point all night. We were celebrating our friend, Liz's 40th birthday, and OP hooked us up with a great server (hey Kathleen!) and a private room (The Fairmont Room), which allowed us to be loud and crazy all night!
A good way to switch up the conversation is by asking everyone to write
down one question, put in a pile and ask the questions throughout the evening, allowing everyone to share their answers. Some responses are hilarious and you get to know people a bit better!
Sunday Brunch at The Dandelion is a MUST in Philadelphia. It is perfectly quaint, food is delicious and it’s the hot spot for locals. That’s when you know you picked a good one!
