One of my best friend’s got married. Before the wedding came the bachelorette party. Big shout out to the bride’s sister and MOH for helping plan this. I took care of the important details and she made sure there was an ample amount of fun. She also kept me company in the hotel gym!
After going back and forth way too many times, we decided on Washington, D.C. because it has everything- vineyards, bars, strippers, and its only a 4 hour drive from NYC. We left NYC on Friday night, equipped with empanadas for dinner and some killer Spotify playlists for dessert. Do you know how many songs can be about cock without having to change the lyrics? This was our form of entertainment.
The bride works in the hotel industry and hooked us up with a 1 bedroom suite in the Navy Yard location. PRO TIP** Our hotel was 3 blocks from Nats Stadium. Because there was no game that weekend, we had tons of metered parking which you can pay via the parkmobile app. We had plenty of room to get ready to the vineyard and to welcome our Friday nigh guest, “Officer Dirty Dean.”
Saturday morning was a big day at the races. We loaded up the car to tailgate the Virginia Gold Cup. The weather wasn’t great, but that did not stop us from having fun! The MOH kicked off her shoes, and the bride entered into the hat competition. We also had several types of grilled cheese and giant inflatable flamingo because DUH- We had to FLAMINGLE for the last MINGLE. The horse themed continued at Due South where I won a Derby prize (it was also the day of the Kentucky Derby.)
Saturday night was an array of bar hopping and trying to distract bouncers from an expired ID with cleavage- How does a 25 year old have an expired ID for a bachelorette party? We ended Sunday with a bang, or shall I be more specific- with $200 in singles. This was the highlight of the trip! A male burlesque brunch where we were the center of attention because of our stack of money. C’mon ladies- don’t be shy- shove that dollar bill where it belongs!
