We've given you basic suggestions for places to get a massage, hair color change, sweet treats and good reads— now it's time for a girls night out. Take a break from family time and reconnect with your girlfriends. As the temperatures start to warm up, meeting up for dinner, margaritas or even karaoke night may be ideal for a hard-working mom.
Clawson's Royal Kubo offers lively nights of karaoke on Friday and Saturdays. Dare to be different and stop in the downtown bar/restaurant and taste some authentic Filipino food, have a drink and land front and center singing karaoke before the crowd. The bar has a large catalog of karaoke songs and a TV that displays the lyrics for those performers who don't quite know all the words to the songs. So grab your girlfriends and head to Royal Kubo to sing a tipsy rendition of some of your favorite hits. Royal Kubo has become a staple in the Clawson community and it's a perfect place for a group of friends to have a fun time.

Royal Oak's Sangria Tapas Cafe is the perfect place for a ladie's night out. Not only is there drinks and great tapas, but there is dancing, too.

To cool off, go back down stairs and have a signature glass of Sangria with some paella or Setas Sangria, which is wild mushrooms sautéed with olive oil, garlic and wine.
