Sometimes You Get out of Your Comfort Zone…and Like It.

This is a sponsored post. All of the opinions contained within it are my own.

So per all of the big feelings and overflowing emotions of last week, I needed to get out and have some fun. And this was really my first big blogger perk!

I got invited to an exclusive opening VIP party on the brand new patio of Ruth’s Chris in Rogers! (HA! I know right?) There were drinks to be had, food to be scarfed, and new friends to be made.

Introverted Me was all “Don’t do it! You’ll have to mingle and stuff!” and Extroverted Me was like “Free drinks and new connections, woo hoo!”

Extroverted Me won, and I am so glad it did!

We got to dress up all fancy, and in NWA excuses for that are few and far between, so I jumped on it! I wore a black and white striped, sleeveless cocktail dress and long black elbow-length cardigan with a red bubble necklace, red clutch, and black Vera Wang heels. (SUPER comfy! If you’re a heels hater but finding yourself needing some, go grab a pair of hers.)

The Ruth’s Chris patio was awesome! There was a musician, multiple bars to choose from, and multiple layers to lounge and chat. They had awesome strung lights throughout the area to set the mood. Quite possibly my favorite part though, was the service staff! They found a great crew who have fun with customers and enjoy the evening right along with you. They had the most awesome uniforms too! They all wore black on black with suspenders and bow ties, and some of them wore big hipster glasses too. It was super cool!

I highly recommend hitting up the new patio area this summer! They have a brand new menu that is well-priced for everyone just for patio season and it’s a great time for happy hour or a night out with friends! It definitely helped to cure my blues last week! Check out some photos and enjoy!

Nice thing about free drinks? You can taste them all and decide which is your favorite! The Hurrican Martini is for sure mine.
