Lordy, Lordy, Look Who’s Forty :: Metry Cocktail Venues for 80’s Babies

Lordy, Lordy, Look Who’s Forty…

Not me. Yet. But close!

Now that most of the 80’s kids have kids who are a little older, we have more options for getting babysitters and having some fun nights out with friends.

With the help of the Facebook world, I have compiled a list (no rhyme or reason to the order) of the best places to go for drinks with your girlfriends or if you want couples’ nights. Another plus of the list, you will most likely not run into the kids who you used to babysit and many people will not refer to you as “ma’am.”
