(NAPSA) - When it's time to relax, an increasing number of
American women are enjoying "girls' night out," or "in" with their women friends.
Maybe it's to the hottest nightclub, or the newest restaurant or maybe it's just to meet for cocktails and a movie. Whatever the destination, call up some old friends or maybe invite some new ones to a night just for the ladies.
For evenings in, consider a night of pampering. Plan on pedicures, manicures and facials, relaxing and catching up with the gang. Have on hand an assortment of "chick flicks" and plenty of snacks and drinks, such as Marinated Shrimp with Dijon Sauce and Dubonnet Cosmopolitans.
