We wanted to thank everyone that came out to join us for our Pop-Up Surprise at Uptown Brewing Company yesterday! Not only were there so many other events going on in Uptown Greenville, but it was CRAZY hot AND was pouring rain for part of the evening. You ladies are troopers! Uptown Brewing Co. staff was amazing as always, pulling together the complimentary wine tasting for us and rolling out their new Strawberry Tart brew the same day! We had about 50+ ladies join us for shopping, mingling, and of course WINE. Obviously these Girls Night Out socials wouldn't be the same without our awesome vendors, you ladies make life so easy and fun! And a big shoutout to our Dessert Sponsor, Patty Cakes, Cupcake Boutique for her AMAZING cupcake flavors and to our Featured Charity Eastern NC Stop Human Trafficking NOW! for joining us, sharing what they do, how they help, and giving ideas on how each of us can help in the fight against human trafficking!

All hail the Wild About Girls Night Out animal print theme social at Uptown Brewing Company. We've all been there, planning to attend a themed party or social without having to break the bank OR not having an idea on what to wear! (No worries, I actually had the same problem and it's an event I'm helping host!) So, like any true millennial, I turned to my Pinterest boards for some inspo and found exactly what I was looking for! Below are some of my fav looks to throw together for Girls Night Out this week!
Whatever you decide to wear, rock it! I'm so excited to see everyone and all the prints Thursday, May 30!
Last week, 5th Year, a college brand, tweeted that Sup Dogs had won the longly anticipated #BarStoolBestBar competition! Sup Dogs outvoted Penn State's Champs Downtown by 400 votes, totaling 20,953! (WOW!) Out of 64 other bars across the country, Sup Dogs won, officially putting Greenville on the map for people from all over. Owner, Bret Oliverio, even mentioned how business has increased by 40% since being announced the winners! So what happens now? In celebration of winning the title of America's Best Bar, Sup Dogs is hosting a party with the help of Barstool ECU at The State Theatre tonight! Not only is this super exciting for the bar, but for Greenville all together!
'“Us winning Best College Bar in America has a lot to do with ECU students and the passion and pride that they take in our business, and that’s something we’re super grateful for,” Oliverio said. “So it’s not only a celebration of Sup Dogs, it’s also a celebration of students, alumni and everyone in Pirate Nation.”' So as an ECU Alum myself, I feel the need to add - "We are the pirates of E.C.U Hey!"
Until next time! - Brittany
Ladies, we had such an amazing time at our event last week at Uptown Brewing Company! I think it's safe to say it was by far one of our favorite spots to have an event - our awesome vendors, DJ, Dessert Sponsor, charity, photographer and incredibly accommodating Uptown Brewing staff, we had ourselves an evening to remember! We had OVER 120 ladies come out to support our local business including not just our vendors and venue, but Anita's Food Truck and our Spotlight Charity, Pitt County Council on Aging. (Click here to find out ways to volunteer with Pitt Co. COA) The Swag Bags from Belk were a huge hit and we look forward to participating in in their Fit For the Cure event, April 13! We even had Gina with Robinson Jewelers sponsor a gorgeous sterling silver ECU pendant necklace for a raffle!
Huge thank you to all of you who came out and congrats to all of our giveaway winners! Enjoy these great shots from our photographer, Lia with Scape Photography!
WOW! We are up to 233 ladies registered on Eventbrite so we decided to celebrate lucky #250

Happy Monday! I wanted to start the week off with sharing the lineup of Featured Businesses we have for February's Girls Night Out event coming up next week! Housewives in the City Greenville, NC was launched just a few months ago and I'm so very impressed with how ready the ladies of Greenville were ready for us! Each event is growing, and more and more women are coming to events excited to learn what Housewives in the City is all about. Everyone is all about networking and I LOVE it! Which makes me that much more excited about Girls Night Out at The Blackened Kraken Bar & Grill next Thursday! We're all expecting a successful event, The Blackened Kraken is in the heart of the uptown district making it a great location for all of us to meet up. Our spotlight nonprofit this month is the Cancer Services of Eastern North Carolina - they're partnering up with the Carolina Breast Imaging Specialists for the 1st Quarter Breast Cancer Screening Day the same Thursday of Girls Night Out (Feb. 28 from 3pm-7pm at the Carolina Breast Imaging Specialists.) Check below for more information as well as our Featured Businesses, links are attached if you'd like to get ahold of any of them before Girls Night Out See you next week!
January's Girls Night Out was only our SECOND event for Housewives in the City Greenville, NC, but we had some of the best ladies come out. Thank you to all the wonderful women that came out ready to get their networking on! And thank you to our great venue, Tiebreakers Sports Bar and Grill! Tiebreakers set us up with great accommodations; our own servers, 10% off food items, AND a special for crafts beers (including local brews.) Of course the evening wouldn't have been a success without our vendors and their giveaways for the raffles. I loved everyone's enthusiasm, all of our ladies were ready to meet and mingle, shop and enjoy a great evening together!
Although we did not have a nonprofit featured before Girls Night Out, I did meet one lovely lady who shared an event with me that every woman in Eastern NC should know about! The Cancer Services of Eastern North Carolina is partnering with the Carolina Breast Imaging Specialists for their 1st Quarter Breast Screening Day. The event will take place Thursday, Feb. 28 between 3-7pm at Carolina Breast Imaging Specialists. You MUST pre-register to attend via phone, email, or online registration!

I feel like in 2019, everyone (at least all women) know or have an idea what Scentsy is, but something I have never done was read up on the company. Scentsy's mission is "To bring value to the world by providing an industry-leading, family-friendly business opportunity selling creative, artistic, high-quality products that warm the heart, enliven the senses and inspire the soul." Scentsy definitely does all those things and I'm so glad Christy has been our Scentsy lady for both events here in Greenville! Not only is she a complete pro in the business, but she knows her stuff and keeps her family at the center of her world. Christy is my Scentsy lady for life! As her shirt at events says, keep calm, she's a Scentsy lady.

Rodan & Fields is one of the #1 skincare companies in the U.S., and let's face it, you don't become one of the best of best with products that don't work. January was Mandy's first event with us but we hope to have her back at more upcoming events, and Winter was the absolute perfect time for her to be joining us! She is a product of the brand and she loves to share her own story with Rodan & Fields. It's easy to see why she loves to do what she does. With the weather going back and forth between freezing temps and muggy, rainy days, I love to hear Mandy's recommendations for a new Rodan & Fields skincare routine. I'm also looking forward to the opportunity for her to do mini facials at our upcoming events!
