Girls’ Night Out
April 25 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Spring fever has the GIB staff leaping around like mad March hares, because we all know what spring in Boonsboro means- GIRLS’ NIGHT OUT!!!
This one is going to be a doozy even by our standards, and we’ve come to expect some pretty rockin’ GNOs. For starters, we’re going to be joined by the delightful Charissa Hip, aka HippHikerGal, who heads up the local group of Girls Who Hike(www.girlswhohike.net/ ). This is a nationally recognized organization based here in the US, designed to connect women with other women for companionship, fun, shared learning and safety on the trails. It’s free to join- go to the closed Facebook communities for folks who identify as female at www.facebook.com/groups/girlswhohikemd/ and request membership. Charissa established the Maryland chapter in January 2018 and it already has more than 500 members. She’s warm, friendly and fun and you will love her as much as we do.
And since Charissa has everyone fired up about getting outside and enjoying the stunning beauty of our local countryside.
we’re excited to host James Harris from Beaver Creek Fly Shop, the area’s premier full service fly fishing resource. The restorative benefits of fly fishing have been well attested for a long time now, and we women are ready to elbow the boys aside and claim our place in our region’s creeks and rivers. James will teach us about basic entomology (ie, all about bugs), knots, rods and reels, and why fly fishing is so much more complex and yet meditative than plain old fishing. We’re also tickled to pieces to have our old friend Don Fine here, demonstrating how tie your own flies, or to sell you his beautiful custom ones.
Every gal who shows up to receive casting instruction (out back on our lovely patio) will also receive a one time in-store discount at the Fly Shop.
And of course, we’ll have champagne and nibbles and laughter and our wacky staff, and most important of all, the treasures! Take a moment and fill out a wish list while you’re here- we’ll keep it handy to share with that special someone who wants to give you your heart’s desire and knows just where to find it.
