Grab your girls and check out some new spots! P.S. this list is great for any girls’ night out, not just moms! Enjoy! 

1. See a Show

Fairfield County offers many places to see a show, from theaters and small venues to outdoor arenas and typical movie theaters. There is something for everyone. For a unique live theater experience, check out the Prospector Theater in Ridgefield – they even have a restaurant, bar, and cafe! If a traditional live experience is more your speed, check out Westport Playhouse or Hartford Healthcare Amphitheater

2. Get Crafty or Learn a Skill

You could paint and sip at places such as Pinot’s Palette in Stamford or The Giggling Pig Art Studio in Shelton. DIY wood signs or other home decors at Board and Brush in Monroe or AR Workshop in Fairfield, or build a flower arrangement at Stems + Co in Norwalk. If a cooking class is what you are looking for, head to the Fig Cooking School in Milford or Vita Pasta Lab, with events in many locations. 

3. Host a Book Club Night

You can start your own or join an established group. Search for book ideas through programs like Reese’s Book Club, Read with Jenna, Oprah’s Book Club, or head to Goodreads, which also has many book club lists!

4. Get Active

Bowlmor Lanes in Norwalk has bowling, laser tag, an arcade, and food! You can also check out Pinstripes in Norwalk for bowling or bocce. For more outdoor adventure, head to the Adventure Park at the Discovery Museum in Bridgeport, or find some hiking trails, such as at the Bartlett Arboretum in Stamford. 

5. Dessert Night 

Host a dessert night at home, where everyone brings their favorite treats for a tasting party. Head to a favorite bakery or bake your own. You could also host a virtual baking class either in individual homes or all together for everyone to try their hand at making a new treat. 

6. Adult Beverage Tastings

Check out your local winery, such as Jones Winery in Shelton or Aquila’s Nest in Newtown. For beer lovers, head to Stratford for Two Roads or hold the alcohol and try Athletic Brewing Co. In lower Fairfield County looking for a local beer fix, Half Full Brewery in Stamford has you covered. If distilleries are more your thing, try out Sono 1420 in Norwalk. Want to keep it closer to home? Host a wine, beer, or liquor tasting at your home. Everyone can bring their favorites, and maybe you will find something new to love. 

7. Get Pampered

For a tailored experience, head to GlowBar in Westport for a short, customized facial or DryBar for a salon that only does blowouts while watching your favorite rom coms. Both are perfect for a moms’ day of relaxation. You can also talk to your local salon or spa about scheduling group appointments in the studio to get out and make it a truly relaxing day. 

8. Check Out Events at Local Museums or Zoos

Many museums or zoos host adult events, such as Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo in Bridgeport or Stamford Museum & Nature Center in Stamford. Fairfield County has many museums to check out for various exhibits to meet everyone’s interests, such as The Glass House in New Canaan, the Bruce Museum in Greenwich, and MoCA in Westport. Other spaces to check out classes and events are Grace Farms in New Canaan, Wakeman Town Farm in Westport, and Weir Farm in Wilton 

9. Game Night

Host a game night or trivia night at your house. Everyone can bring an appetizer, dessert, or wine to share, plus their favorite game, such as Bunco, Cards Against Humanity, or What do you Meme.
