Bare Necessities

Men, I have an unfortunate news flash for you: When my girlfriends and I get together for some one-on-one time, we do not have pillow fights in bras, panties and heels. And we don't always have time to indulge in a bubble bath while ridding our legs of unwanted hair, so we shave in the sink. Our sleepwear is much more likely to consist of comfy flannel than leather and lace. We do not make out with each other when we're bored, and bra shopping with my best friend does not involve extensive groping of her chest.

But that doesn't mean that being a girl is completely devoid of all fun and excitement — especially when shopping for undergarments and sleepwear at Northfield Stapleton's Victoria's Secret this evening from 6 to 8 p.m. It's Girls' Night Out, which means real women having real fun, all silly male fantasies aside. There'll be numerous professional makeup artists, so shoppers can go in and get makeovers, a live DJ spinning, and refreshments, and free gift-prize drawings. Music, makeup, free stuff, refreshments and shopping? We're there! Victoria's Secret is at 7480 East 29th Avenue; call 303-355-1306.
Thu., July 12, 6-8 p.m.
