Need an excuse to get together with the girls? We’ve got good news: research suggests that when women hang out with their female friends, they feel calmer and less stressed (as if you needed a reason to share a bottle of rose with the ladies)! Since a girl’s night out is just what the doctor ordered, text your besties and hit up some of these spots in the Corridor. It’s an excuse to get all dolled up, drink in the middle of the week and have a great time!
