Perks of Being a Female

February 20, 2011


Erin Schrader

As I mentioned in this post, I am a part of something awesome. That something awesome happens to be a Martini Club :insert excited female scream:. This club was born about a month ago and we now have had two official meetings. While there are many perks to being a female, I consider this to be one of the best. What group of males can sit around with each other, enjoy chatter about their lives, all while sipping on fruity concoctions mixed together in the cutest of glasses? Your right, this is not completely out of the question for some males, but I think you get what I am getting at. Girls need girl time and this is exactly what this club delivers. We get together at a different meeting spot every other week, sit around for a couple of hours, sip on martinis, laugh, cry (martinis may be to blame for this), and just enjoy each other’s company. There are several things I especially love about this club…
::drumroll please::
  1. It is with a group of girls that I would probably not hang out with regularly. Not because I wouldn’t want to (bc duh, they are awesome), but we are all just busy ladies with different schedules. If we did not have a regularly scheduled meeting (insert Martini Club) we would not get together.
  2. Secondly, we meet in the MIDDLE of the week. We always have things to do on the weekends (okay, not always in these parts of town), but the weeks can drraaaaaag. This little bit of added excitement to my work week is just what the doc ordered to keep me on my “A” game.
  3. And last, we are NOT an exclusive club. We are always looking for more females to join us, so ladies-if you are in the area please feel free to join. You know you want to J
