If only men could be privy to the things women say when they get together to share a couple of cocktails and a rich meal. They’d be shocked, appalled, maybe disgusted, and incredibly titillated. Arguably, men may be a lot more crass about their topics of conversation, but women can be jaw-droppingly detailed.
We decided to chronicle the sordid conversations (and the delicious food and libations) of a typical Girl’s Night Out.
It started with drinks at a gorgeous Downtown Los Angeles bar called The Edison during their Depression-era Happy Hour where you can get one hand-crafted cocktail for thirty-five cents and it ended with a steak and desert binge at the nationally-famous Fleming’s Steakhouse, where we got to sample their signature ninety-nine calorie Skinny Girl cocktail–the Tickled Pink.
We also snagged the recipe!
Here are some highlights from our girl talk!
On crushing on dudes that just aren’t compatible with you:
[pullquote quote="Because you're attracted to it. You want to corrupt him. Nothing says, 'I love you' like 'I hate you."]
Sunshine: “Years ago, I got a crush on some guy for like two weeks. He’s thirty-something. He’s never had alcohol in his whole entire life. Never had caffeine ever in his whole entire life. Hasn’t had meat since he was like three.”
“He just doesn’t have any fun qualities that are compatible with my lifestyle. But for some strange reason I couldn’t stop thinking about him…I just hated him so much that I was so attracted to him.”
Miranda: “Because you’re attracted to it. You want to corrupt him. Nothing says, ‘I love you’ like ‘I hate you.’”
Sunshine: “I think I choose people that I hate because then I know nothing is going to happen. I’ll be physically attracted to them and hate their personality so, so much. And I’ll know when it comes down to it, I’ll be able to stop myself because I hate them.”
Miranda: [laughing] “You are so a** backwards.”
