Your husband has no idea why Robert Pattinson’s brooding interpretation of Edward Cullen is so appealing. And he certainly wouldn’t be caught dead downing a Cosmopolitan. Let’s face it, there are certain activities that are strictly for the girls. This week, leave the kids with your husband, grab your best girlfriends and treat yourself to a Girl’s Night Out. Here are a few of the best places to grab a cocktail, catch a chick flick and eat your heart out.
: Forget Steinbeck, Yia Yia’s mixes a happier tone in its own Grapes of Wrath. The creative cocktail blends grape vodka, sparkling wine and elderflower liqueur and is served with a skewer of frozen grapes. The restaurant also has an extensive wine list. 15601 Olive Blvd., Chesterfield.
: The ideal theatre to see a chick flick. Grab a glass of wine at Fred’s Drive-In, a concession restaurant within the theatre, or grab some drinks and dinner at one of the many restaurants located near the theater in Chesterfield Valley. Just don’t forget the popcorn and a box of tissues for weep-worthy scenes. 450 THF Blvd., Chesterfield.
: Looking for a great margarita? Mi Lupita has one of the best in the area. Order a pitcher, nibble on some chips and salsa and let the gossip commence. 15307 Manchester Rd., Ballwin.
: Dubbed “The Place for Steaks in St. Louis,” Tucker’s offers a laid-back atmosphere and provides generous portions for a great meal out with friends. If you’re looking for a lighter choice, try one of the salads topped with Tucker’s signature lemon-pepper dressing. 14282 Manchester Rd., Manchester.
