Circle Center Mall in downtown Indianapolis hosted a Girl's Night Out. We were given a passport on which to collect stickers from vendors located throughout the mall. The first 200 ladies to turn in their completed passports received a swag bag that contained samples, gifts and coupons.
|This was our prize, a really nice bag that zipped closed at the top for carrying lunch or wine bottles.|
Here is one of the vendors in the scavenger hunt: Howl at the Moon, a dueling piano bar.
Of course, I noticed the sweets right away from the Sweet Factory.
It all made me smile.
Godiva gave out their 1.5 oz chocolate bars, like the one the bear is holding: truffles, dark chocolate, milk chocolate...sorry, I got carried away there. And it looks like this beautiful bear display may have been a prize to some lucky girl. (Not me, darn...)
Speaking of chocolate, a student from The Chef's Academy gave a cooking demonstration.
It was held in the Artsgarden where you can get a great view of the city.
Happy Snaps Photo Booth was there with fun props.
I visited the photo booth three times. There was no one else there and the attendant told me to go as many times as I wanted. It reminded me of when I was a teenager a few years ago (LOL), and my friends and I would do this at Walgreens.
Then I spotted two of my favorite brands from across the room: Coca-Cola Company and Chick-fil-A.
Coca-Cola gave me a can of diet coke that quenched my thirst.
And I received Chick-fil-A's trademark cow, in stuffed animal form, holding a sign saying Eat Mor Chikin'. I can't wait to show it to my grandson.
I was also given a cow fan. It will make a nice prop for something after cooling me off.
Other activities included getting my wedding ring cleaned by Andrews Jewelers; eating a free pretzel from Auntie Anne's and appetizers of pizza and guacamole/chips from California Pizza Kitchen; and receiving a soothing arm and hand massage from a Paul Mitchell student.
I didn't win a big prize...
But I completed my passport and received the bag.
I enjoyed being downtown, getting a ton of exercise from walking around the mall and being pampered for awhile. Circle Center did a great job with their Girl's Night Out!
