It’s been awhile since I’ve had a good “girl date” with my best friend and usual “hunting” partner, Jenny. With my insane schedule of all work and even more play and Jenny’s new side gig as a cocktail waitress at a downtown club, we’ve been having the worst time crossing paths! It totally sucks! When I was offered two tickets to Second City’s Best Friggin’ Time of Your Life (day job perk!), I didn’t ask a guy…no! It was time to reconnect with my Second in Command and encourage her to get up to a little trouble…I’m the best kind of friend!
Expect to see: The hottest waitstaff…EVER! We even saw one ridiculous duo where the girl was wearing a skintight micro mini and mile high heels…you are at a play…and it is 7 p.m. Her guy was getting gradually more jealous as she had BLATANTLY been there recently with another dude and kept slipping up in her conversation.
What to wear: Do not wear a skintight micro mini and mile high heels. You will look ridiculous and end up in the commentary of a blog. I’d suggest “going out” jeans and a cute top. I never recommend jeans, so you know I’m serious. It’s a casual spot and you want to be able to check out the ultra casual neighboring “comic” bars afterwards.
Terrible pick-up line/blatant lie that just might work: I have the entire SNL DVD collection at my place…I just hate being the only person providing the laugh track……..
Insider’s Tip: The Second City e.t.c. stage has some sort of amazing booze filled concoction called the “Chicago River” with five types of liquor and a hint of “toxic waste.” Sounds like a one-two punch to me! If you really want to impress someone, they also offer some pretty fancy champagne.
Tales of Accidentally Sexy: 1) I want to hang out with the entire cast. The show was fantastic and I need them all in my life. 2) After the show, Jenny and I went across the street to one of the two Irish bars. Turns out, it was half-price bottles of wine….only good decisions were made from then on……….
