After what seemed like weeks of waiting, May 27th finally arrived and 40 Hip + Urban Girls (HUGs) got together for the ultimate girls night out yesterday. The premiere of Sex and the City 2 was screened in a private VIP suite at the Varsity Cinemas in Downtown, Toronto. It was definitely girls dressing for girls and for ourselves of course! The invite suggested a cocktail chic dress code and boy did everyone deliver.
A special thanks to our new friends at Mill St. Brewery, who offered complimentary samples of their new Lemon Tea Ale to all those in attendance. A photo boot was set-up so we could snap some shots in a more professional setting. I mean, we did all just get dressed up on a Thursday night!
Our guests snacked on popcorn, soda, champagne and cosmos inside our licensed suite. The VIP room included leather loungers that reclined, mini side tables and dedicated servers that brought your drinks and snacks to you.
Guests received swag bags full of goodies from our event sponsors. We even got a little networking and introductions done in the lounge area pre-movie. When the film finally got going at 9:45 PM, we were in for a 2.5 hour treat of fantasy clothing, lifestyle and travel. Everything a hip + urban girl could dream of...I mean this was a movie made for the fans and not for the critics. SATC 2 delivered what we wanted, sure the plot was thin but it was great just to reunite with our beloved characters.
We hope everyone who attended had a fantastic time! It was nice to meet all of you and your lovely friends. The Hip & Urban Girl's Guide plans to throw more unique networking events and girls night outs like this one.
