Girl’s Night Out in Omaha is a rarity for me, so let me state for the record that these are almost all suggestions based on Girl’s Night Outs I’ve only imagined or they’ve been recommended to me. But in my head, these sound fun, so that has to count for something, right?
My last Girl’s Night Out was in early June. We saw “SPANK! The Fifty Shades Parody” at the Orpheum Theater, drank fruity mixed drinks with silly names and showed remarkable restraint by not catcalling the shirtless male actor.
A girl’s got to get out from time to time and be a little silly. A mama’s got to leave the house without kids and
breathe unwind just a little.
So, ladies, grab that outfit you reserve for special nights (you know the one), turn off your cell phone’s ringer, and pick a place to go for a Girl’s Night Out in Omaha:
Creative Juices Flowing
Wow, guys, you love to drink and paint. I asked Oh My! Omaha Facebook fans for GNO ideas and, a popular place was Corky Canvas at Midtown Crossing. Apparently, I’m the only woman in Omaha who hasn’t visited either of these places. Must fix that, huh?
Anyway, you all spoke highly of the creative night out. AJ said about Corky Canvas: “Wednesday is half price bottle of wine night, so even better 🙂 They take you step by step through the process, so even those of us that are not artists can create a beautiful work of art! Have someone get there early to save spots for your group. We were done by 9, which is nice as well.”
Why go out, though? You can invite a bunch of your friends over for a low-key creative night doing an in-home workshop with Knotty Nail.
Another creative option for you ladies is to test out one of the Continuing Education classes at Metro Community College. You can pick an art class, learn a new recipe, dance or whatever floats your group’s boat. As you might have guessed, drinks aren’t mentioned at all in the syllabus. What’s up with that?
A Round of Drinks
For a good beer, I look no further than Crescent Moon at 36th and Farnam streets. They have 50 beers on tap, from local to Belgian. Low key and casual night out. If wine is more your thing, I recommend you and your friends meet at La Buvette or Corkscrew Wine & Cheese.
Show Off Your Smarts
Get all your smart friends together (or the ones who are a well of useless information) and kick butt at a bar’s trivia night. Omaha has a few options. The one I’m familiar with is the Thursday night trivia battles at Varsity (Dundee location).
Night at the Theater
I’ll never forget the whoops and the catcalls heard throughout the Orpheum during “Spank.” Apparently, GNO can include a trip to the theater. I combed through a couple of my favorite venues’ upcoming season and found a few shows I could see a group of ladies enjoying. As much as I love thought-provoking performances that stir up all sorts of emotions, but my criteria for this category is that it will be fun or funny night. Who wants to sob alongside their besties for two hours?
I’m a Broadway fan so you can’t really go wrong taking a group of friends to one of the shows in the Omaha Performing Arts Broadway series. Check out what’s coming in the 2018-2019 season…”Hamilton”! The comedy tours coming through in the upcoming months are great too. Browse Ticket Omaha for information.
