10-4, good buddies. We read you loud and clear. Many of you (42% so far in our recent poll) are way excited to see the new Sex and the City movie. It opens May 30, as if I even have to remind you.

So you're going, obvy, but how do you turn this movie outing into the cinematic event it deserves to be? Invite your friends over for a pre-party, and follow these quick tips for Sex-ing things up:

  • Cosmos are key, so shake up the cocktail by offering four variations, each named after our four heroines. Mix up the ingredients (vodka, Triple Sec, lime juice), but trade out the traditional cranberry for a different kind of juice, like mango, pomegranate, pear or passionfruit. Put out pitchers of each one and let guests pick their poison ... and their alter ego for the evening. I'm thinking passionfruit would be the perfect bevvie for a Samantha-esque night, no?
  • For snacks, pay tribute to the show's fifth lady, New York City, by serving upscale takes on NYC street food and other city favorites. Think hot pretzels with gourmet mustards to dip into and mini pizzas with decadent toppings. Craving an NYC hot dog? Try one of our creative takes on the classic pigs in a blanket.
  • Glam goodie bags for each guest add a splashy touch. Fill each bag with lip gloss, nail polish, mani/pedi tools and fashion mags. Any Mr. Big-esque guys in the group? Replace the girlie stuff with cigars and upscale men's mags.
  • Add a heart of gold to your fashionista outfit by holding a clothing swap. Ask your friends to bring over clothes and accessories they've tired of to trade with other guests. Display items as you'd see them in an upscale boutique and your simple soiree becomes a free and fabulous shopping event. Donate all extra items to a charity and get extra karma points.

I'm inviting over all the girls over to pre-funk before we go see the movie and we'll have a cute bartender serving us up cosmo's! Good tips for the variations! You'd be suprised how many men were willing to help out for the event! The dress will be upscale so we can head out after the movie. Have fun ladies!

sorry to break the news, but i am seeing the movie tomorrow. i managed to get advanced screening tickets. very tempted to sell these tickets to make a profit, i just couldn't allow for someone to leak what happened to me soon after the official opening night. it would just kill me.
so, i am off to see the movie tomorrow night with 5 of my friends. i do plan on wearing my karl lagerfeld dress and christian louibitan shoes. why not, right?

enjoy.

We are going to have a guys and gals night, starting at our house. We'll greet our guests at the door with cosmos. We'll offer light appetizers followed by dinner. As background, we'll have our fav SATC DVD playing. The dining room table will be decorated in pink, silver and black featuring silver stars with the 4 ladies' names written on them and silver confetti. We'll play SATC trivia games with the winner taking home an apron straight from the HBO store in NYC stating, "I'll have a cheeseburger, large fries and a cosmo." A limo will pick us all up and take us to the movie. Following the movie, the limo will return us to our house for coffee and vanilla cupcakes with buttercreme frosting with sprinkles made from The Magnolia Bakery's own recipe. Favors will be passed out to our guests. They are white t-shirts that say, "I love SEX in the city." for the gals and black t-shirts that say, "Mr. Big." All the shirts were ordered from the HBO store in NYC. Can't wait....

Ok Ladies. I'm having a sex and the city theme party at my house on friday night..I need some good ideas? I got the Cosmo's, Bellini's, and manhattans. But what else should we do? Any games ??? I'll take any idea's good or bad :) were thinking of having a pleasure party during it

It all starts tomorrow night with our Kick Off Party in Elkridge, MD with free mini manicures, chair massages, door prizes, food, games, fun, girl talk, and much more.

Hey ladies,a few co-workers and myself were able to see a sneek preview of the movie on tue here in Houston,I won't leak any details about the movie.But it is worth DOING EVERYTHING BIG!!!

Hey ladies, Raleigh NC is on the scene and ready to glam it up for Sex and the City. We are doing a pre-movie cosmo party at home and then painting the town red after the movie...Stilettos and cosmos anyone!

I just found out the wine that "Big" serves to Carrie in the movie - it's Chimney Rock Elevage Blanc. I guess it's also the only wine that was served at the NYC premier party at MoMa. I'm serving it at my SATC movie party to show that I'm so hip w/the movie! Cosmos are soooo tv!

Great piece of info! I agree that cosmos are so typical - love the thought that the girls of SATC are now into wine!

MIAMI IN THE HOUSE!! We are having a fab Miami SoBe pre movie appetizers and cosmos at the Delano (fab chic hot spot in Miami) and then heading over to the movie! Dress code: Sex in The City/SOBE Hot and Sexy! Girls Night Out after on South Beach!!

Hey Ladies! I am so excited about the 'Sex in the City' Premiere! I am hosting a SITC Girls' Night Out Party in Houston (H-Town)! We are starting off with martinis, bellinis and sushi at Miyako, for sushi and then heading off to see the premiere at the AMC Dunvale! I should have about 10+ friends joining me. I'm getting my hair done, taken off work for the event, and am going to put together SITC girly goody bags and am encouraging everyone to come dressed as their favorite character! Afterwards, we will be de-briefing about the movie at our local 24-hour Starbucks!

Celebrate Female Power!

Truly,

Julie 'Jules' Minerbo

And I'm on it Hot-lanta. i've invited friends over for drinks and food and then we'll watch the finale season (just in case those have forgotten or just want to see it again) and then we're off to see the movie. We're doing this tomorrow. i'm so excited i cant stand it!!!! This will be sure a Chick Flick w/e!!! Yeah... here's to Sex...And The City lol

Indianapolis is ON IT too! We're meeting up tonight at the Glendale theater near Broad Ripple, handing out goodie bags, donning pink feather boas and fabulous outfits, and then hitting up the bars in Broad Ripple after the show!

After I saw that the local news channel did a story on the movie in last night's 6 o'clock news, I promptly bought advance tickets! This is going to be HUGE!

Can't wait!!!!!

20 girlfriends and I are doing it big in Detroit for the SATC premier. We are waiting to see the movie on Sunday, pre-drinks, food and a visit from the local Mercedes dealer is in store. We will also take pics with SATC character masks and enjoy a sweet coupon from BBOS for 20% off. I guess we are having sponsored themed event. If anyone would like a coupon for Bag Borrow Or Steal, send me an email and I'll be glad to send you one. [email protected]

Peace

“guys…go to any bar near any theater that is showing this movie!!! women will come out of this movie ready to screw anything that moves. they’re complete imbeciles when it comes to this movie and show and will feel ‘all empowered as women’ to be taken advantage of and then you can escape in the early a.m. before they turn into weeping mental cases the next day…so seriously, if you want to get laid, now’s your opportunity. good luck, not that you’ll need it!!!”

We had a "FABULOUS SEX AND THE CITY EVENING". Five fabulous girls/women dressed as Nyers do, heels and all. As we viewed the show, we laughted, cry, agreed, disagreed and applauded. Then off for dinner and Cosmo, Manhattan and Martini's. Talked about, men, kids, sex and boys.

Thank you for such great information..
Thanks
