Shop. Then Come Eat And Drink At Marlow’s Tavern or Aqua Blue For Fun Sex And The City Nights

As a recovering shop-a-holic, I feel like I understand Carrie on higher level than most. My innate need for shoes and shopping is near primitive and has definitely left its mark on my pocketbook. I even thought about starting a support group for other recovering shop-a-holics. Although I’m sure Carrie wouldn’t be caught dead attending a meeting like that, I bet she would agree that women should be there to support each other. What better way to support each other than a girl’s night out?!

Carrie would agree with the philosophy behind Marlow’s Girls Night Out: spend less on cocktails and chow, have more moolah for shopping! Call your girlfriends and gather at Marlow’s every Wednesday in June for a Sex in the City-inspired evening of gab plus $5 drinks including the NY cosmopolitan, the “Absolut” Hunk, the Metropolitan and other city-fied cocktails along with $5 flighty white wine flights. The movie makes for tasty $5 appetizer fodder as well, bringing on summer pizza (inspired by 21 Club), jerk chicken satay (via Monkey Bar) and black bean and salsa dip (courtesy of Centrico).

In Alpharetta at 3719 Old Alabama Road, 770-475-1800; Kennesaw at 745 Chastain Road, NW, 770-425-8777; Midtown at 950 West Peachtree Street, 404-815-0323; and Vinings at 2355 Cumberland Parkway, 770-432-2526.

Wanna celebrate an evening with your girls while supporting a good cause? Head to Aqua Blue on Friday, June 20 for their Sex and the City-themed fundraiser night. Enjoy $5 cosmos and half-priced appetizers all named after your favorite characters from the star-studded film! Stretching your shopping potential even further will be giveaways from local vendors and raffle prizes . . . including an Aqua Blue wine dinner for four or dinner for two. Soundtrack, err background music, will be provided by David Scott Beluga’s Piano Man. Proceeds go to the Susan G. Komen Foundation for breast cancer research.

Aqua Blue: 1564 Holcomb Bridge Road, Roswell; 770-643-8886.
