As one of the greatest singers of our era Rebecca Black sings, “It’s Friday, Friday. Gotta get down on Friday,” so with only two precious days in the weekend, you better make these days count! And there’s no better way to celebrate the weekend than with wine and friends. The Prince of Pillowtalk, the honorable R. Kelly said it best, “It’s the freakin’ weekend baby. I’m about to have me some fun.” Here’s how we like to spend our Friday nights:

When I reach the end of the week, I’m like:


Time to get dressed for a night out:

Mind Kaling

Get the latest in beer, wine, and cocktail culture sent straight to your inbox.

Then I order my Uber and hit the town with my two favorite things:

Home Alone

First, I head to a party and make my favorite kind of small talk:

Red Pairs With White

Then I toast my friends and I’m all like, “Cheers!”:


I pour my first glass like a classy broad:

Elegant Wine

But my friends know the real me:

Zelda Fitzgerald



Then someone just starts drunkenly talking to me and I’m like:

More Wine

No seriously, I need wine to get through the drivel:


It’s at this point that my friends and I leave the party and head home:

Chelsea Handler

We have a way better time at my place anyway cause I’m all like:

Game of Thrones

We get super noisy, but when my neighbor knocks on the door, I just pour them a glass:

Will and Grace

And then it’s off to bed, to do it all again tomorrow:

April Wine
