If you don't read PIWTPITT because you're new to the internet or something, a brief explanation of I Just Want to Pee Alone Ladies' Night Out is probably in order. A couple of years ago, Jen wrote a blog post about how it's hard for moms to make new friends. The comment section blew up, of course, with people who wanted to be her friend. So she hosted a Ladies' Night Out meetup in her hometown of Kansas City. It was, by all accounts, rad.
The next year, her readers were clamoring for another Night Out. And not just the local ones; women from all over the country wanted to join in on the fun. Well, it just so happened that Jen's first anthology, I Just Want to Pee Alone, had just been released. So she asked some of her co-authors to host meetups in their own hometowns. And thus, I Just Want to Pee Alone Ladies' Night Out was born. A night for ladies who like to laugh, and to leave their kids at home while they drink white wine and pee alone. Or, at least alone in their own stall at the bar.
I attended the Boston event (it was actually in Newton), hosted by the lovely and talented JD Bailey of Honest Mom and Brenna Jennings of Suburban Snapshots. Yes, I drank with famous bloggers. Yes, it was awesome. We made friends, we laughed, we all went home at a reasonable hour because it was a school night.
As you might have guessed by the title of this post, I'm hosting Boston this year! Only I'm hosting in Framingham. We'll be at Margarita's on Wednesday, November 12th. It's just off the Mass Pike at Exit 13, and a stone's throw from Route Nine, so it's convenient whether you're from Boston, Worcester, or Miscellaneous (no, out-of-towners, Miscellaneous is not a town in Massachusetts... but it could be).
The event is open to all ladies who want to pee alone and make some new friends. You don't have to be a blogger, or even a blog reader, though I hope you will be by the time you leave! Please click here to go to the Facebook event and let me know you're coming. Bring your friends! I can't wait to see you there! (I'll be the one with the hair.)
P.S. If you're not from around here, don't despair! There's probably an event near you. Click here to see all of the locations.
