I know I'm always going to prefer having dessert than having a drink. Alcohol just doesn't taste that great to me. The only things I like are the sugary watered down drinks so why bother?
That being said, I love dancing and enjoying good music. My favorite thing is when the music is great at a venue and there's a dance floor. I figure it's a fun way to burn some calories!
I have a secret confession to make... when I'm alone in the house, I listen to the music and I dance to it. Hopefully there are no Peeping Toms in my neighborhood because I'd be mortified if I was caught. I don't even think my boyfriend has seen me do this.
Last night, we ventured to a new venue to meet up with one of my boyfriend's friends from college. He relocated because of job late last year and just found out they're both in the city. It's such a small world right?
The bar we went to was called Blue Martini which had a live band and specialty martinis. My first drink was a diet soda while my boyfriend enjoyed his mojito.
Before Happy Hour ended, they encouraged me to order something since it was half off. I looked through the list and I immediately zoomed in on a drink called...
The Skinny Bitch - Van Gogh Blue Vodka, Tropicana 50 Blueberry / Pomegranate Juice, and Blueberry Purée – Under 250 Calories
My boyfriend's friend laughed at my choice. Let me just say there's a reason why it's under 250 calories. There was absolutely no sugar in the drink. It felt like liquor in a glass tinted with blueberry color. I hated it but my boyfriend loved it. He drank my skinny bitch and I sipped on a glass of white wine.
Afterwards, we danced to a few of the songs being sung by the live band. The music was okay and definitely targeting an older crowd.
