Two Tickets on that Coast City Bus
This past Friday, I dragged three of my co-workers with me to Atlantic City for a night away from New York City. Trading one crazy city for another? Sounds like my kind of night. We stayed at the Tropicana Hotel & Casino and proceeded to run around the hotel, which was pretty much a giant maze. Our first stop was Boogie Nights which was beyond hilarious and super cute at the same time. Since the club was 70's and 80's themed, we were surrounded by an older crowd and a Michael Jackson impersonator, all underneath an enormous disco ball. What better way to start off the night than with some peace signs across the eyes and finger pointing?
Once we appropriately felt out of place, we headed to Anthem Nightclub which was more our cup of tea (or rum). It slowly filled up as my friend tried to negotiate drink prices (which surprisingly worked) and we eventually joined a Bachelor party which was just all kinds of strange. Atlantic City is full of the weirdest people and I love it. And what kind of trip would it be if we didn't gamble a little? Or a lot? We grabbed a taxi once we were ready to take our dancing shoes off and headed to Caesar's to try our luck. We had gotten free vouchers with our bus tickets so we took full advantage of them; I even ended up winning a total of $20. Jackpot, right? I was rolling in the deep. Two of my friends had trouble with their vouchers and, after an hour of arguing, managed to get $40 worth of food vouchers for the hotel. What does that mean? I found myself eating mozzarella sticks, loaded boardwalk fries, the best buffalo wings I've ever had, and chicken fingers at 4 am and nodding off at the table from a food coma. What a classy broad.
I littered my Instagram with a few pictures from that night (those don't belong on my blog). ;) And these pictures? They're from the morning after and therefore feature a very exhausted, and very hungover Jen.

I'm not sure if you noticed that my shoes didn't have time to shave that weekend, resulting in a little bit of facial hair to accumulate underneath the laces. I had a chance to review these adorable Shwings, which are attachable wings (and other shapes) for your shoes. I love that they add a little bit of fun to my footwear and I can't wait to attach some gold shwings I have to my converse sneakers. Have you guys seen any of these around or tried some out before?
