Girls’ Night Out
Your girl friends, music, food, stories, laughter…What could possibly be better than a girls’ night out?
“The perfect girls’ night out would start with meeting up at someone’s house before going out to get ready together; we would listen to music and help each other decide what to wear,” said Danielle Trotter, a senior human development and family studies major.
Once you are all dressed up, it is time to take some selfies and head to dinner. Dinner is the perfect opportunity to catch up with your friends and have “girl talk” before going out to a crowded and loud setting. Plus, it helps you to tolerate the alcohol that may follow in the night. During dinner, at least one group selfie must be taken. A senior political science major, Janelle Mayorga, said she likes to “go eat at a nice Chinese restaurant before going out.”
After dinner, it is time to head to Old Town for some drinks, dancing and, you called it, more selfies with your friends. Mayorga said she prefers to go to “the Rec Room because the dance floor is big.”
As the evening comes to a close, it is time for a late-night snack. A Krazy Karl’s North of the Border pizza with ranch is Trotter’s go-to after a night out. After one more selfie, it is time for bed.
Guys’ Night Out
A typical guys’ night out includes friends, beer, some friendly competition and food.
“Any night out starts with the perfect day,” said Ryan Wix, a senior engineer major. To Wix, that means Friday classes being canceled, watching “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” and playing a round of golf against his roommate for a growler at New Belgium.
Some form of friendly competition is key to any guys’ night. A junior business management major, Colby Herbst, said the perfect night starts with “sinking the same cup in beer pong followed by a bro five.”
After a good bonding session with the guys, it is time to head to the bars, get some drinks and meet some new people. According to Herbst, when going out, they dress to impress: “dress shirt, dress pants, tucked in nicely.”
Ryan said he would “go straight to Lucky Joe’s and after an Irish Car Bomb,” he would find the perfect dance partner.
Once the night is dying down, it is time for some pizza – a greasy, delicious Cosmo’s Pizza. Herbst and Wix both said they enjoy going to Cosmo’s after a long night out.
