Bachelorette Party

Bachelorette Party photoMy 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.

Bachelorette Party photoThe 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.

Bachelorette Party photoAfter 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.

Bachelorette Party photoThe 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.
