The Murphys and Chases are throwing parties to celebrate Lily and Nathan’s upcoming wedding. After sending the kids off to their grandparents for a sleepover, the adults are meeting for a little Friday night fun. The women are gathering at the Pumphouse for drinks, cake and lots of penis party favors. The men—well they’d like to be spending the evening alone with their women, but instead they’re at Tonks for wings and pitchers of beer.

Girls’ Night Out is the second release in Lauren Dane’s Visits to Petal, a series of shorts revolving around her characters that live in Petal, Georgia 

This 22 pages story is a quick look into an evening out as many of the characters from the current and past series gather to celebrate Lily and Nathan’s wedding.  These people have fun. So there’s lots of snappy dialogue as they banter back and forth but I’m sad to say there isn’t anything special about the story. It actually fell a little flat and left me feeling like I was watching the story from a distance, instead of being part of it. The best part for me was the fun the women had with all the references to the penis party favors and penis hats. I can so see that happening at a bachelorette party. That at least made me smile.
