Girls just wanna have fun
Katie’s friends gave Katie a singularly fun-filled bachelorette weekend that would make Cyndi Lauper proud.
Meagan, Katie’s maid of honor, with the help of bridesmaid Becca and the rest of the ladies, planned a girl’s getaway for Katie’s bridal party in Pittsburgh. Most of the gals live in Erie and Northwestern PA so the Burgh was a peerless spot. Meagan did not miss a detail – she had an itinerary with guidelines for attire, venues and rally times. She even had snapshots created just in case any of the party members went missing and needed to be identified…
The group stayed at the Hilton in the hip newly revitalized Market Square. It is a traditional public square with food, shops, entertainment, events and not to mention, great people watching. Market Square proved to be the perfect location because it allowed for a convenient walkable and bike-able weekend.
The ladies met up Friday at the Hilton to primp and then started the night out right by drinking Hurricanes at NOLA on the square (yes, as in N’awlins, Louisiana). Next, they had dinner at Bakersfield, an upscale simple Mexican restaurant known for tacos, tequila and whiskey. The group ended the evening with cocktails at Sienna Mercato’s Iltetto rooftop beer garden, with a spectacular view of the Three Rivers City.
For breakfast, the girls found Katie’s favorite breakfast – donuts! After tasting the delightful pastries they kayaked downtown on the rivers. However, the highlight of the weekend was the Pittsburgh Party Pedaler. The Party Pedaler came with a bicyclist, stocked bar and music! The ladies just had to rotate serving each other and selecting the right tunes. They rode throughout the city and sang and drank! Everyone on the street was taking pictures and videos of the party wagon – Katie relates, I felt famous!
After the Pittsburgh Pedaler the party nibbled more at different restaurants throughout the Square. They ended up at Howl at the Moon – once known as a dueling piano bar and now more of a full concert show and bar. The gang hit the dance floor grooving to pop hits and party anthems to close out the night.
It is fun to see brides-to-be whoop it up for their final days as a bachelorette. And with our digital age we can experience it via video. Using a GoPro. Posted on YouTube. See Katie’s video record. The fun is quite contagious. I have a strong feeling her wedding day at Quincy Cellars will be too!
