Oh Yes Its Ladies Night: Bachelorette Party

I was able to cross of my 101 in 1001...

#12 Take an athletic pole dancing class!!

I was lucky enough to try it out for the first time at my good friend Tiffany's Bachelorette Party!
Her bridesmaids had set up a day for us all to try out the class, head to dinner, and then club the night away.

This place awesomely called Vertical Tease was Uptown and hidden away. 
I didn't even know it was there until the GPS found it. If anyone has already taken one of these classes before they know what the general set up looks like.

Oh yes....multiple poles. There were so many of us that we had to go in groups so there are no actual pictures of me on the pole (thank goodness), but it was a ton of fun and it was a great first experience.

Pole dancing requires a lot of strength and balance. 
I wore my heels to get the full experience and I would say that it helped me get in the feeling.

I learned a lot, but unfortunately I ended up with a battle wound. 
Its been over a week and my bruise on my ankle still hurts!!

Next we headed to Deltas, a ritzy soul food restaurant in Uptown Charlotte. 
I didnt even think you could put ritzy and soul-food in the same sentence.

But it was so good!

We had a nice surprise at the restaurant. We met Eric Benet! He happened to be eating there at the same time as him. He had a show that night Uptown. He saw that we were a bachelorette party and didnt mind us taking pictures with him.

For those of you who dont know who he is; He's a singer and he was first married to Halle Berry. Then he cheated on her and claimed he was a sex addict. Yeah he's an idiot. LOL.

Our evening was an awesome one! 
Pole dancing, Little black dresses, cupcakes, jello shots, and Eric Benet.
Oh what a night!

My dress was from Target. I'm in love with it!

What a fantastic idea for a bachelorette party! I've never taken pole lessons but it seems like it'd be a pretty strenuous (but fun) workout.
