A few years back I saw a picture on Facebook of girls in wigs for a bachelorette party and I knew when it was my turn that I would be completely unoriginal and copy them. We “wigged out” in Asheville and had an absolute blast. I was worried initially that people would give us funny looks but so many people came up to us to say how much they loved the wigs. Lots of the girls ended up saying that they couldn’t wait for another opportunity to wear them. You might be seeing more of the unicorn wig in the future! At the very least that baby will end up on my head for Halloween next year. Sadly I’ll miss Halloween this year because (thank you, Jesus) I’ll finally be married and on my honeymoon.
We used AirBnb to rent a house in Asheville so we could all stay together. I highly recommend going this route for a bachelorette weekend because you can split the cost. The upside is the price and the downside is having to Uber/Lyft into town. Overall, I’m glad we rented the house. The Uber ride with all of us at 3am was it’s own hilarious experience.
We headed to Pack’s Tavern for dinner and drinks which were both fabulous. They also had live music!
Pack’s Tavern showed us an amazing time, y’all. The servers and hostesses offered to take pictures for us including the classic Pack’s picture above (please note Laura’s bedroom eyes). They had a live band and the restaurant is big enough to serve large parties quickly. We didn’t have to wait long for a table or our food even with 8 of us in the group. I would highly recommend them for a bach bash, girls night out, or really any occasion.
The photo above is from the black light hallway at a club called Scandals which is the perfect place to dance the night away with your girls. Throwback music, drag queens, and rainbow colored wigs go together quite seamlessly. If you’re in the area, their drag show is well worth fighting the crowd. This one girl did a split then proceeded to twerk IN THE SPLIT and another girl danced to Shania Twain’s greatest hits. I mean… seriously?! Why would you go anywhere else? They had the whole place screaming and as drunk as I was I remember Rachel kept feeding me ones for tipping. Let me say something to all my fellow awkward girls out there… drag queens beat strippers ANY DAY. I’d much rather have someone blowing me kisses and telling me congratulations than some guy’s junk in my face covered in glitter. I respect everyone’s choice to do what they want but I choose drag queen Shania Twain. I happily threw ones at those ladies because they freaking brought it. I foresee many girls nights out at Scandals in the future.
I want to thank all the girls for coming out that night even if I hardly ever drink which makes me a total light weight. You ladies rock harder than a drag queen twerking in a split. Tell me the date of our next wig party and let it be soon!
Until next time,
