And then there were five.

It's Memorial Day weekend, which means our Southern girls (Haley - Knoxville, Tenn.; Brittney - Mobile, Ala.; and Courtney - small town, La.) have places to go and people to see. The rest of us, who hail from California to Texas to Connecticut, are now searching for fun (under-21) things to do in the city this weekend (within walking distance because all the cars have followed their Southern belles away).

Last night, Haley (and her Scion!) was still with us, so we drove down to Atlantic Station to check out the nightlife.

Unfortunately, the few places we could find that were still open were not age-appropriate for all of us. So we piled back in the car and drove around the city guided by our smartphones, until our stomachs got the best of us and we stopped at Neighbor's Pub in the nearby Virginia Highlands area for some delectable desserts.

Our first "night on the town" was quite an adventure, but we still have 5-7 more weeks to figure it out. And I know we will.
