Sometimes you need to leave the house, without people who consider dinosaur-shaped nuggets to be haute cuisine. You need to wear clothing that is for something other than a jazzercise class and you need to go somewhere that doesn’t sell toilet paper and coffee. It’s called self care. You mom hard. You adult hard. You need a mom’s night out. You need
pants with buttons, drinks with ice, food with flavor, and conversation that doesn’t revolve around Peppa, Paw Patrol, or diapers. Pinot’s Palette Las Vegas makes planning a mom’s night out simple; it’s like painting happy little trees, so easy.
In case you’ve forgotten how to make a play date that doesn’t revolve around a sand box or a snack schedule, this is how to do it.
Set a date. This is the difficult part, because schedules and commitment are hard, but persevere, because you all deserve this. Pinot’s Palette makes scheduling super easy with THREE locations in Las Vegas. You can choose from Boca Park, The District at Green Valley Ranch, or the newest location at Town Square!
Tell them you’re leaving. Tell your kids. Tell your partner. Tell your parents. Call a sitter. Just be responsible and make sure someone is watching the children while you’re gone, because you’re leaving. You are taking a night off. You are going to breath and be creative.
Pick Out Your Outfit. Step out of those yoga pants, into some leggings, toss on some makeup, and what the hell, blow out your hair. Wear what you want but do avoid long sleeves; you do enough of their laundry, no need to wash out paint stains from your own clothes when you get home.
Make Dinner Plans. Or don’t. I love that the Pinot’s Palettes in Las Vegas are in fantastic locations surrounded by yummy restaurants, so if you want to make plans for dinner before the hardest part will be deciding where. But, if not, Pinot’s allows you to bring food in (but not alcohol) to snack on while your paint.
All locations offer a nice beer & wine menu along with snacks and non-alcoholic drinks.
Get out! Enjoy! Leave. Don’t squeal your tires, that’s just rude and it makes you look desperate. Arrive at Pinot’s Palette about 20 minutes before your class begins so you can get settled, order a drink if you’d like, and stretch your painting hand. Also, if you happen to be a Type A personality, you may need to study the painting a little (like me).
Expect to have a great time laughing with your friends, comparing your painting with theirs, and planning the next time you’ll be back. Also plan to roll your eyes when your husband asks if you really painted that, because yes, it’s just as good as Claude … and worth as much too!
Pinot’s Palette offers multiple options for painting:
Standard Events – These 2 or 3 hours events are generally in the evening and are only for painters ages 21 and older.
Family Day – Normally a 2 hour event held during the day, these events are recommended for children ages 7 and older. Alcohol is not available at these events.
Open Studio – Check the Pinot’s Palette Las Vegas calendars (Boca Park, Town Square, and the District) for these listing and details. These events provide you time to paint, self-guided, with instructors available.
Project Pet: This unique opportunity allows you to paint a portrait of your pet. These are offered on a limited basis per studio. There is a 10:1 student to instructor ratio so you have plenty of opportunity for guidance as you paint.
