manicures and cocktails simultaneously?

as a non-girly girl, i'm looking for a fun night out with the girls, but most definitely not a bachelorette-type night. i'm thinking low-key, casual dinner (but good food) and some dancing. manicures and cocktails would be lovely to start the night. any good ideas would be greatly appreciated.

  1. I think Diva in Georgetown on Wisconsin Ave has Thursday night manis and cocktails.

    1. Beauty Bar in NYC.

      short of that, in other cities girly-girl friends have hired people to come and do mani-peds at home for cocktail hour before heading out.

      there is someone who does specifically that (outcall nail service) and was profiled in the WaPo sunday magazine a few months ago although I suppose any nail tech might be contracted.

      unless you booked a private room at a venue I don't know I'd want to be at the next table...

      1. Manis and cocktails. Fab. Now why didn't I think of that?

          Might as well order a rusty nail.
