Girls Night Out at Barezzito

22 Aug

This past week, my friend Juan was out of town and Jorge was sick, meaning Viri and I had to fend for ourselves in a very rare “Girls’ Week”. Tuesday night we did something we haven’t done in years… go out to a club without any boys! A group of us went to Barezzito, a chic lounge in downtown Cancun with live music, contemporary design and an outdoor terrace with amazing views of the lagoon and Hotel Zone on the horizon.

Turns out lots of other friends ended up being there as well. I ran into a friend from the office, as well as Jorge and Cesar, two of my best friends from college.

Cesar, me, Jorge (not my husband, another Jorge)

The live band that night was very good! I had no idea there was a Spanish pop version of the song “Going to the Chapel”, but it was pretty catchy.

My friend (and former roomie!) Cyndi has a birthday this month… meaning that on any Tuesday during the month of August, she can order a free bottle at Barezzito and only pay for the drink service. The table ordered whisky, which is surprisingly popular here in Mexico. (All my Mexican friends love whisky, but I can count on one hand the ones who enjoy a good tequila shot.)

Viri and Cyndi

The following night, Viri, Cyndi and I got together for a Twilight movie night. We watched Eclipse. Friends, pajamas, sushi and Taylor Lautner (or Robert Pattinson, depending on who you ask) all make for a fun evening.

What’s the best girls/guys night you’ve ever had?

    You look gorgeous in that dress! I don’t think I’ve seen you with your hair down. Beautiful. I prefer tequila over whiskey…

      Thanks! On most of my adventures I wear my hair up … because it’s hot up in here.

      I prefer tequila over most anything haha

    Looks like fun. I need a good girls night out. PS I am following you on twitter via flgirlmidwest.

    Best girls night out ever? Gosh, there have been many. I once put together a bellydance party and me and 30 bellydancers crashed the dancefloor at an unsuspecting club. It was pretty fun.

      I’ll look you up on Twitter if I’m not following you already.

      Bellydancers? Don’t think I could beat that.

    Chica – your hair is getting so long! It looks amazing, as do you in that dress! You must be kicking ass on the diet?!

      Only lost somewhere around 10 pounds so far (in 7 months hahaha), but the Curves program has definitely helped to improve my shape! Thanks 🙂

    How fun!! I wish I had some good girl friends here that I could go out with. Not to mention a good club to go to. There are only like two or three places here and they are not all that.

    How fun! LOVE your dress, by the way! Very cute. I can’t believe that everybody loves whiskey so much- I absolutely HATE the stuff, but I can pretty much down my body weight in tequila 🙂

    Awwww, I love a good girls’ night, whether it’s going out for a dance or staying in to watch a film. Lovely. 🙂

    Haven’t had a good girl’s night out in a while. I did recently stay w/ a friend & we painted our nails and watched Cougartown.
