If you've somehow missed the media buzz the past few weeks, Sex And The City 2 is set to debut in theaters this weekend. And fans of Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte need not travel to New York or Morocco to experience the fun. All you need is a trip to The Sunset Strip to indulge in unique events celebrating your favorite ladies.
The Gordon Ramsay Bar at the London has created a menu of specialty cocktails “designed” after the famed women of SATC. All priced at $5, the cocktails will be offered weekdays from 5-7 p.m.
Toast Carrie Bradshaw with “The Fashionista” featuring Veuve Clicquot, pomegranate juice and pink rose petals, or sip on the Samantha Jones-inspired “Blonde Ambition” featuring Skyy infusions pineapple, fresh lime juice, tripe sec, crème de cacao and lime garnish.
The happy hour also includes $5 menu items celebrating the flavors of the Middle East, including crab falafel, spicy lamb kebab with fig jam and spiced olive jar with grilled Halloumi cheese. As an added bonus, valet parking is $5 during the happy hour, making sure you don’t have to walk up and down Sunset in your Louboutins.
If you want to make a weekend-long celebration, Andaz West Hollywood is offering a “Girls Getaway Weekend” during Memorial Day weekend. The pampering-packed getaway includes a pair of movie tickets to see Sex And The City 2, a complimentary bottle of Moet Ice Imperial champagne to enjoy on the rooftop pool sundeck with views overlooking Los Angeles and the Hollywood Hills, a $50 daily credit for tasty food bites, poolside mani/pedi for two guests and blowouts by the Luxe Beauty Team, and the ‘All Access Pass,’ granting you complimentary access to The Comedy Store, The Roxy Theatre, House Of Blues, Key Club, Viper Room, Whisky and Cat Club.
