Kiss the Bride
This Saturday I celebrated the last few days of single life for my friend Carrie. She is a great friend I made in my sorority days at Western. In true Carrie style - she rocked the casbah for her bachelorette party. The city of Chicago was taken by storm. Well, it actually was sort of stormy out if you want to be literal. We started the night with gifts, sangria, and excellent hors d'eouvres. The true party women then boarded a trolley and headed out to find trouble. (Note: all incriminating photos will be spared for the sake of future job prospects for the bride)
We first stopped by the piano bar, Howl at the Moon. Carrie found a comfortable spot on the stage, and jello shot syringes to share with all. She had some signature tambourine moves.
Next stop Durkins. I found it a little crowded. We were in and out of there pretty fast. We found time to feed Carrie a few shots. This shot didn't go down very easy.
Last stop on the trolley ride - Carol's. This was my favorite bar due to the live country band. The "Chicago boys" Dave and Mark showed up just in time to spin us around the dance floor for a while.
I had a great time with Carrie and got the chance to get to know some of her friends (and sisters) better. She is a true friend who has finally found her true mate. She always feared growing old with cats - we always knew she would have everything she wanted. Can't wait for the wedding!
