Things I like:
- Events combining the two.
Things I don’t like:
- Seeing a cool event advertised and then learning it’s being hosted in London. As per.
Grazia have somehow read my mind and are hosting a literary ‘Girls’ Night Out’ in LIVERPOOL (that’s right, not London) with cocktails, canapes, quizzes, prizes and fun. And to make it even more perfect for me, it’s happening on my birthday – Tuesday 19th May.
Tickets cost £20 per team of up to four people (so that’s a fiver each) and includes quiz entry, drinks, canapes and a goodie bag. Available to buy HERE.
So if you live in the North West, take advantage of the type of event normally reserved for London being held on our doorstop. And if you want to buy me a birthday drink there, I like prosecco – thanks in advance.
