Ready for a girl’s trip? I am right there with you. Whether you are planning a staycation or making future plans, the “Hub City” is the ideal location to unwind, enjoy time with friends and create lasting memories. I’ve crafted the perfect weekend plan for a much-needed getaway to the 806!
Friday As you make your way into town or begin your staycation, grab your girls and head out for an afternoon of shopping. Visit downtown to find cute boutiques and shops that hold both rich history and charm. You don’t want to miss the shops on Broadway like TC Elli’s, River Rose Boutique and The Ash.
After all those card swipes and trying on the latest trends, head to the Funky Door Bistro & Wine Room where you can find Lubbock’s finest selection of wines and delicious fondues to satisfy your hunger. Enjoy a night catching up with your gal pals and listening to the live band.
Pro tip: Make sure to call ahead for reservations!
After dinner, finish the evening with an artistic twist. At A Fragrance of Heaven, one of Lubbock’s most unique spots, you and your girls can create your own candle scent by scheduling a pouring party.
Saturday Saturdays are for the girls! Start your day with coffee and a scone downtown at Monomyth Coffeeshop. Their modern aesthetics and friendly atmosphere will ensure a peaceful morning as you sip on your espresso to get ready for the eventful day ahead!
After you’ve recharged, make your way to The Woodhouse Day Spa. Choose between their massage therapy, skincare and hand or foot therapy. They even have “Spend a Day with Us” packages that include aromatherapy baths, organic facials and seaweed sugar scrub pedicures. Need I say more? They had me at “massage”.
If you haven’t filled up on cucumber water and chocolate-covered strawberries by then, head to the West Table Kitchen and Bar, located downtown at the Pioneer Pocket Hotel, for an early dinner. This upscale dining spot is the perfect way to continue a day of treating yourself. From fresh oysters to the pad thai, you can’t go wrong with their dinner menu. If you happen to finish at the spa a little early, West Table’s lunch menu is absolutely to die for as well. Regardless of when you go, you have to try a cocktail from their drink menu! I highly recommend the Pear Collins.
After a day of self-care and relaxation, you deserve a night on the town! Little Woodrow’s is the hot spot on a Saturday evening. Prepare for a good time sipping on your favorite drink and hanging out on the patio near the fire or playing yard games.
Sunday As the weekend comes to a close, that doesn’t mean the fun has to end! Finish this girls trip in full glam at The Blo Dry Bar. Call ahead to schedule a blo party for the morning and walk out feeling as fabulous as the next Instagram sensation. They offer seven signature blo out styles, manicures and pedicures, makeup and even waxing!
But wait, the fun doesn’t stop there! Known as having the “Original Brunch” in the LBK, Cafe J has everything from french toast and crepes, to the baby boomer breakfast. Make sure to view the menu beforehand as the decision between all of the delectable dishes is sure to be a tough one.
