Girls’ Night Out—What You Need to Know

Here are the important details to remember: At 5 PM on Thursday, February 9th, Nest 1896 will open its doors at 5 PM, officially kicking off the party. The first 20 women through the door will receive a swag bag. If you can’t make it right at 5 PM, don’t worry about it! There will be plenty to do, see, and experience throughout the entire evening.

Then, you’re invited to stay as long as you want (well, until 7:30 PM), sipping and snacking, all the while browsing throughout the building. This will also give you a chance to meet all of the boutique partners, who are all extra excited to meet you.
