10 Ladies Night Out Tips for a Night of Fun at Fat Daddy’s!

You’ve heard of ladies night out, but you’ve never heard of ladies night out at Fat Daddy’s! We’ve got the perfect mix of live music, great drink specials AND the best food for miles around. With 1/2 price wine and martinis, you and your friends are sure to have an unforgettable night at Fat Daddy’s!

To help plan this epic ladies night, we’ve put together a list of 10 Ladies Night Out tips to help you maximize your fun at Fat Daddy’s!

1) Set a date 3 weeks in advance! - Chances are you and your gal pals probably have tight schedules, so if you plan to spend a ladies night together make sure it’s secured on each girl’s calendar. Picking a date at least 3 weeks in advance gives you plenty of time to lock it in and not have to compete with other events. Click here to see which bands are coming to Fat Daddy’s! 

2) Be Clear About When, Where and Who – Make sure each girl knows the address, time, and phone number for the ladies night that way there is no confusion! Also, make sure everyone has each other’s cell numbers in case someone is late or lost.

3) Carpool – this can eliminate many of the concerns in tip #2 and it makes the night way more fun knowing you can recap the night in the car!

4) Once you’ve arrived – immediately order your first drinks and cheers! This sounds easy enough but many times groups can get separated and you miss the chance to do a group cheers!

5) Take Pictures Early - Get the pictures out of the way in the first hour that way you won’t forget to take them after you’ve been drinking! Not to mention, everyone’s makeup and hair will look best at the beginning of the night! (we all know why)

6) Mingle with strangers – Whether you’re married or single, it’s fun to meet new people and it keeps your ladies night exciting and different! Who knows, you may even get a free round of drinks!

7) DANCE together in a group – This is a girl’s night for a reason! You and your friends are there to be together, not separated by male dance partners.

Joyful party

8) Turn off all technology and hide your phones - Ladies night is all about quality time together. If each girl is on her phone how can you expect to gossip? Except for the occasional Facebook check in – all phones should remain in your handbags.

9) Choose food items that are easy to share such as Pizza! Frankie’s 14′s are the perfect size to split between a group of girls! Click here to see the menu. Don’t forget to split the bill right down the middle, that way it’s fair for each girl.

10) LEAVE together! The most important element of a girl’s night is to not leave any female friend behind. This is key. They will thank you in the morning!

There you have it! Your top 10 tips for an epic Ladies Night Out! Follow these tips and you will have an unforgettable night with your friends.

CONGRATULATIONS to Karen Lawson! Winner of our $200 Ladies Night Out Giveaway!
