Fun Girls Night Out Ideas – Fun Girls Night Out / Ladies Night Out ideas and places to go! Plan a moms night out with your friends with these suggestions.
I love getting together with my BFF and other gal pals for girls night out fun! Years ago, we made it a resolution to get together at least once a month. Our resolution held up and we had a blast making sure we spent plenty of quality time together all year long!
One problem we encountered early in our GNO mission… we realized it was difficult coming up with creative and fun girls night out ideas. It’s all too easy to fall into the “let’s meet for apps and drinks at ______” trap and by February, we were looking for GNOs that were a little more involved.
Once we got the idea ball rolling, my friends and I came up with some entertaining and lively ideas and incorporated them into our Girls Night Out fun! I highly recommend sitting down with your friend(s) to start throwing out ideas. It’s a good way to gauge which ideas everyone is comfortable with, what spending limits should be etc…
Here are our fun girls night out ideas, personally tested by yours truly and my friends.
Fun Girls Night Out Ideas
Meadow Brook Hall Jazz in the Garden – The Jazz in the Garden summer series features a grand tour of Meadow Brook, wine, smooth jazz, and light hors d’ oeuvres. We really enjoyed our sophisticated evening of sipping wine and strolling the elegant grounds. It’s just as lovely in the winter months!
Wine and Pottery – We enjoyed our wine & painting experience (and our artwork) so much that we decided to try the wine and pottery route. Many Metro Detroit pottery studios offer GNO packages.
Pole Dancing – Girls night out pole dancing fun! Wonder Women Pole Studio in Lake Orion offers GNO and private parties. The class was fun, and it was a very comfortable environment. There was nothing awkward about it. The teacher was very open and guided us toward sexier ways to move, without anyone feeling uncomfortable or embarrassed.
Wine Strolls – I love using local Parks and Rec departments as a resource for family fun. Some have great ideas for adults too. Many offer their own Ladies Night Out Nights and fun wine strolls.
Comedy Nights – We spent a great evening at The Royal Oak Music Theatre at the Whitney Cummings Show and had a blast at a show hosted by the Orion Center featuring magician/comedian Jason Abbott. Mark Ridley’s Comedy Castle is next on our radar.
The Great Escape Room – The Great Escape Room in Royal Oak is part puzzle, part mystery, part scavenger hunt, and all fun! Groups of up to 12 people are literally locked in the room and have to put their heads together to find clues and solve logic puzzles that will lead to their escape before the 60 minutes are up. The puzzles at The Great Escape Room are a real-life experience based on the genre of computer and mobile phone escape games.
Pistons Playmakers Club – I love the entertainment specials The Palace offers with their Pistons fan club tailored for women – The Pistons Playmakers Club. They offer great specials, contests, and merchandise deals. My friend and I bought cheap Pistons tickets thanks to a promotion and enjoyed drink specials at the game. You can sign up here.
The Cellar Door in Auburn Hills – The Cellar Door is a “wine academy” located on Centre Ct. in Auburn Hills. I say “wine academy” because The Cellar Door provides the knowledge you need to select and enjoy good wine, but in an entertaining way. I went there to review the place and wound up making a bunch of friends during the experience. It turned into an impromptu GNO! I’ll be back!
Cooking Classes – Fun on their own, WAY more fun with a friend! My friend and I enjoyed wine while listening to top chefs teach us great kitchen tips and educate us on fine cuisine. Then, we got to top the night off with more wine while we dined on the fabulous food the chefs prepared for us. I’ve tried one at the Rugby Grille at the Townsend Hotel in Birmingham. Soon we’re going to try one at Somerset.
I’ll keep adding more fun girls night out ideas as the month’s go by. Wendy and I are already planning our next GNO adventure. Do you have any fun girls night out ideas?
