Anyone else out there not only look forward to Thursday’s because it’s the day before Fri-Yay, BUT because of the famed “Thirsty Thursday” fun you should have retired in college??
At Howard, I swear we designated “Thirsty Thursday” as a weekly holiday… making me now reminisce on the occasional hazy nights at Wendy’s drive thru and racking up a few too many “lost” stolen iPhones to count. Nowadays, I have turned over a new leaf…kind of… and call my past Thirsty Thursday’s —”Girls Night”!! So grown up right?!
Me and my friends try to plan a few days out the month to gather round, make cocktails, sip on bottles of Ménage à Trois and talk about the men that annoy us in our everyday lives called boyfriends *cough cough* love you guys!
If you’re anything like my group, you will need a few cocktails to keep the night going strong which is why I’ve laid out some very simple and yummy and by yummy I mean strong dranks (Shoutout to DND) for you and your friends to enjoy!
