Megan and Josh are tying the knot soon, so of course we had to plan a proper bachelorette party. Initially, we considered driving to Denver and back on Saturday. But since no one wanted to DD, we joined forces with the boys and went in on an Airbnb. This marked my first ever co-ed bachelor/bachelorette party, and it was so much fun!
The boys met at 10 a.m. last Saturday, while we didn’t leave Loveland till 3:00. I had my last shift with the Master Gardener’s Saturday morning at the Farmer’s Market, and it was bittersweet. Nonetheless, I had my bags packed and ready to go.
Megan and Brittany rode with me while Amanda and Emma took a separate car. The guys figured out their own transportation; with 13 people meeting in Denver but only 9 of us staying in the Airbnb, doing the math with the cars was fun.
We arrived to the house, claimed our rooms, dropped off our stuff and slammed several jello shots. We collectively walked down the street to TRVE: “Denver’s True Heavy Metal Brewery”.
Is this not the cutest Airbnb? Idk which is more cute. The house or my friends.
Saturday was also Ramsey’s birthday! Happy birthday, Ramsey!!
After TRVE, the boys headed to wherever while the ladies booked it to Union Lodge No. 1. I’ve heard good things about this speakeasy, and the drinks were indeed pretty fancy. My beverage was topped with an orchid; the master gardener in me hesitated but ultimately nibbled on a pedal.
Next, we walked down the street to Cheesecake Factory. I absolutely love CF, so this was quite the treat for me. Not that it was my bachelorette party, but I’m glad Megan agree to apps. And by apps I mean, several apps and a few entrees that we demolished.
My favorite pic from the evening
There’s a first time for everything, and that includes jello shots at the Cheesecake Factory. When the service is slow af and you’re waiting on your drink, bust out those jello shots from the brown paper bag of shame.
I was sad to part ways with Amanda and Emma after Cheesecake Factory, but alas, the show must go on.
We took a Lyft to Gin Mill, but they wouldn’t allow anyone in with a backpack. Super lame if you ask me, but we walked across the street to a kareoke bar for a few.
What’s that, you say? More jello shots?
We grew bored of the karaoke bar and walked to Mile High Distillery. I love this spot for day drinking but had yet to visit at night. The crowd was nice but the music was shit lol. It was almost as if the DJ was fucking with us. Luckily Ramsey and Ian were still awake and met us at Mile High. I might’ve been a tad bit uncomfortable without them there, but it’s not like we can’t hold our own without the boys.
We made it home in the wee hours of the morning. We stayed up for awhile, shooting the shit, before passing out and sleeping like babies.
The following morning, we all opted for breakfast at Bacon Social House. The wait was 2 1/2 hours, unless you wanted to sit outside. So that’s what we did. Keegan and I shared a bacon flight, and I tried a mint whiskey cold brew drink that I actually really liked. All in all, the food was amazing.
If anyone reading this ever considers a co-ed party for the bachelor and bachelorette, I say go for it! We had so much fun going out, meeting up and going our own ways. I loved reconvening the boys at Mile High, as well. And splitting the Airbnb between 9 people made it so cheap.
Congrats again to Megan and Josh! You guys are perfect for each other, and I can’t wait to party at the wedding 😀
