Touchdown Austin! Who’s ready to check out this Final Fiesta for Val’s Bachelorette Weekend?
Upon arrival, we hopped into an uber + headed straight to our Airbnb, which was about 30 minutes from the airport. This was the PERFECT home for all of 10 of us girls to stay at. There were plenty of beds, a loud speaker, a large kitchen to cook together in the mornings and the coziest communal space to play games + catch up.
Each girl was greeted with a mini shot of Patron + a “Let’s Get Smashed” hangover kit. We wanted to change up the standard welcome tote for the bride, so we ordered a Sun Jellie bag to fill with all her favorite treats, like Boom Chicka Pop, Pink Starbursts, A “Get Lit” Face Mask from Target, a “Final Fiesta Sash” from Bachette - And an itinerary designed by Details, Darling.
We had Tropical Prosecco Pong from Stag and Hen set up to kick start the weekend of drinking festivities. The signage from the weekend was colorful / playful with sayings like “Let’s Get Smashed + Prick Your Poison” The drinks would not be complete without the handmade pom-pom cocktail stirrers + custom napkins that read “Sip Sip Ole” with the bride’s wedding hashtag from For Your Party (Use Code: https://prz.io/1kAa0Jh0)
The first night, we put on our best outfits and headed to Second Bar + Kitchen for dinner. We sipped on delicious palomas and dined on some amazing food. After dinner, we hoped in an uber + headed straight to Sixth Street. We got to Green Light Social a bit early, but as soon as it hit around 10:30pm the dance floor was poppin’. They have a new speakeasy located inside, if you’re looking for a more intimate fancy vibe for a cocktail before the night starts! We decided to change up the scene and head to the “Dirty Six.” The first bar we walked into ended up being a lot more than we expected, so we suggest to pick your location wisely if you’re heading to the Dirty Six… We ended up at a place recommended from a friend called Barbarella.
Friday morning we woke up and made a delicious breakfast for all the girls and then we got dressed in our sexy bikini shirts (which were gifted to us from the bride when she asked us to be her bridesmaids)
A shuttle picked us up from our house and brought us to the river for a day of tubing! There are many different locations you can tube here, but we chose Rockin’ R. You + Yours Distillery Co. provided us with the perfect Moscow Mule cans to sip on as we floated in the sun!
After tubing, we ordered the most delicious meal from Lambert’s BBQ. HIGHLY suggest for a night in. BBQ pulled pork, mac n cheese, brussels sprouts, and corn bread…. My mouth is watering as I think back on this dinner. Then we played For the Girls -which was a combo of truth or Dare, Never Have I Ever, Most Likely, Best Of The Best, and Rapid Fire!
Saturday morning we got up early and headed to a famous brunch spot called, Irenes. If each girl pays $15 in advance, they provide the cutest cans of Babe Rose and the bride is gifted with a Babe Hat + Sprinkled Ice Cream. This was such a fun brunch spot to take pics with all the girls! Then the scavenger hunt began! We printed out our favorite from Pinterest and split up into two teams.
We had our final dinner at ATX Cocina to try the famous TexMex. This place was INCREDIBLE and the spicy margs were delicious. After dinner, we stumbled upon the cutest “Welcome to Austin” wall mural. The perfect location to snap pics with your group of girls! We started at Concrete Cowboy, which has the cutest “Giddy Up” sign and then ended the weekend at the Ranch.
