Have a flower arranging class with your girlfriends, and not only will you have a great time, you'll learn something useful! Check out local florists who would be interested in teaching a class (this one is taught by Sarah of Blossom and Branch in New York), or if you know someone who's skilled in the area ask if they'd be willing to head the course.
Wine tastings are great, don't get me wrong, but your friends will love you forever if you take them on a chocolate tour instead! Create your own tour of some of the chocolate hot spots in your 'hood or see what your local chocolatiers have to offer. If you live in San Francisco, Gourmet Walks has a chocolate tour of the city!
Spa days are fabulous, but they can be pretty pricey (and expected). Instead, try a twist on the spa day by doing a blowout party at The Dry Bar — drinks included! — and hit the town with sexy tresses. If you're wanting keep it close to home, have a DIY spa day with hot tea, facials, and girlie mags.
Sure, you could do a yoga class or rock-climbing with your besties, but why not get in touch with your sexy side instead? Look for a pole-dancing class at gyms in your neighborhood (the one pictured is at the Las Vegas Stripper University) for a good time and a good workout, or if your group is more into dancing, check out a burlesque class!
Circus, shmircus. If you're lucky enough to live near any of the worldwide Cirque du Soleil shows, grab your girls and check one out! Each dazzling show is unique, but they are all truly spectacular. Or if you really want to make a trip out of it, head to Vegas for a girls' weekend where there are several to choose from!
Your sporty friends (and fans of Whip It) will appreciate you taking them to a brutal game of roller derby. This sport is all about the ladies, and these ladies know how to rock a roller rink. There are plenty of teams to choose from, but if you're in LA you gotta check out the Derby Dolls in action.
Friendship bracelets, anyone? For a fun, crafty group, head to a place like LA's Bead Source and take a jewelry-making class together. It's the gift that keeps on giving!
Going out to a bar with the girls is one thing, but learning how to make the drinks is even cooler! See if there are any spots like Bourbon & Branch's Beverage Academy in San Francisco, which offers classes on everything from specific liqueurs to "molecular mixology."
A bingo night takes game night with the girls to a whole new level. Bring snacks, booze, and some cash to a local bingo night and be ready to party it up with some old ladies. You may even head home richer than you arrived! Bingo!
