Unlike gulls’ nights out, girls’ nights out are refreshingly free of frenzied squawking and don’t typically end in a tug-of-war over a freshly caught minnow. Spread your wings with today’s Groupon: for $89, you get two tickets to Elegant Escape, a ladies-only spa night hosted at Il Portico's Club Adesso on Friday, December 9, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. (a $240 value).
Providing a welcomed breather from seasonal chaos, Il Portico's first-ever Elegant Escape pampers female partygoers with products and services from some of Philadelphia's finest salons, spas, and boutiques. Throughout the evening, professional and celebrity makeup artists revamp visages with makeovers and consultations, shelling out advice on everything from popular hairstyles to holding model-esque posture when smuggling a bowling ball into a flower shop. Hand and nail treatments highlight a host of relaxing spa setups, including a lash bar and massage chair.
After refueling with finger-friendly fare dispensed from Il Portico's menu, attendees can continue their stylish safari by treating eyes to a fashion show set to the beat of live music and catwalk rap battles. Adding an extra dose of amusement to the event, psychic readings reveal New Year's surprises, and a cash bar accessorizes rejuvenated demeanors with favorite drinks.
