This weekend was fun! One of my friends is moving away for a job, so a huge group of us went out in Boston for a little going-away bash. We're sad to see him go, but it was nice seeing everyone in one place!
We went to a bar called The Whiskey Priest. It was my first time going and I have to say I enjoyed it. They had a deck on the water, and it was great weather to be outside!
This was a more casual bar, so I went with the look below:
The top is new, from Zara, $26. I love how it is gold and glittery, it makes a standard T-shirt formal enough for a night out. I also sported some J.Crew Jeggings and my new leopard print heels from Marshalls. For jewlery, I for a huge gold cocktail ring, a gold bangle and some glittery brown stud earrings. It was all about the gold and glitter!
Here's a close up with my friend:
Since I'm always talking about saving cash, I thought I'd share how you can do a night in Boston on a budget!
Pregame. Drinks at a bar are very pricey. Have a few drinks before you go, that way when you get there, you only need to buy one or two, tops. My friends and I usually split a bottle of wine before a night on the town.
Use a parking pass. My friend goes to Boston quite often, so she got a parking pass. Usually when we park in a garage overnight, it's up to $40 - yikes! But with her discount it was only $12.
Walk if you can, share a cab if you can't. Not that you should take one alone, anyways. And if you have any DD friends, ask them to drive you back!
Stay at one place. Bars in Boston often charge a cover fee, so stick to one place. Less cab rides and less cover charges = more $ for you!
Bring snacks. Rather than blowing that last bit of money on pizza at 2:30 a.m., my friend will sometimes bring a box of Mac & Cheese for a late night snack :-).
