My sister in-law, Melissa, is getting married in June and we went to Atlantic City, NJ for her bachelorette party weekend. I had not been to a bachelorette party in so long, the last one We stayed at Revel, the newest hotel in Atlantic City. So new it doesn’t open until Memorial Day weekend. I had such a fun weekend. It was nice to only have to dress myself, lounge around and watch TV for more then three minutes, eat food I didn’t cook myself, and spend uninterrupted time with Melissa and the rest of her bachelorette party. I love my girls endlessly, but it was nice to have some me-time for 2-days.
The first night we had dinner at American Cut, a steakhouse where the head chef is Iron Chef Marc Forgione. The food was delicious. We ate filet, porterhouse, and halibut with Sauce Proposal (a sauce so good Chef Marc has received multiple marriage proposals…I ate it, it is that good). Chef Marc was in the restaurant that day and we pulled him away for a minute in the kitchen to take a picture with Melissa. He also came to our table to apologize for a steak that was overcooked.
After dinner we headed to watch a cover band play. They were really good and the songs they sang were awesome. We all had our shoes off dancing.

And of course if you are partying with Melissa there will be shots at some point during the night.
Something scandalous is going on here.
Melissa and Annmarie not doing something scandalous.
Cheryl and Annmarie lifted Melissa onto the stage (even though there were stairs) so she could sing with the band.
I mean really sing with the band…
Brunch the next day. We were tired, slow, hungry, and all of us took naps afterwards.
After an afternoon of spa treatments and lounging, we started getting ready for another big night of dinner, drinking, and dancing. I love this picture of Lynn doing Melissa’s makeup. They both look so pretty.
Melissa deciding which Louboutin’s to wear. There is no wrong decision here.

We went to Ivan Kane’s Royal Jelly Burlesque Nightclub inside the hotel to dance and party after dinner.

The Long Island Girls! So much fun partying with them.
Lynn, Jeannie, and Alycia. Can you believe Jeannie had a baby 10 weeks ago?!
Group shot! I think I’m the only one not wearing something shiny.
The DJ needed some help with the music. He didn’t look up once. If he did, he would have noticed that no one was dancing. Katie and Sienna got up on stage to help him out and the music was much better.
Melissa and Annmarie.
Kimbie and I. It was great to hang out with my sister this weekend.
Melissa! Thanks for a super fun weekend in Atlantic City! Can’t wait to party like a rock star again at your wedding!
