Weve always dreamt about being a princess and living in a castle. Well, now were pretty much screwed. Kate Middleton is stealing the spotlight (and the prince) this Friday, but dont put away your makeshift tiara just yet.
The Atlantic Resort & Spa has put together a package fit for a queen on Friday. We cant think of a better way to drown our sorrows than with authentic English pastries and lots of U.K.-style boozin, and we can do both with a Royal Wedding Watch Party that begins at 4 a.m. Friday in the Trina Restaurant & Lounge (601 N. Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd., Fort Lauderdale). Theyll have tea, strawberries and cream, hot buttered scones, and canapés and allow you to catch it all on multiple flat screens broadcasting the event. Once youre done sobbing like a baby, you can attend your own version of a royal reception with a cocktail hour, bitterly toasting the newlyweds with flutes of Champagne, Beefeater Gin mixes (all for $4.29), and light bites to help sober you back to reality. Once the hangover kicks in (bloody hell!), head over to the spa to enjoy the Brit-themed Marie Antoinette or the King experiences at 20 percent off. All it takes is 110 minutes filled with chocolate body scrubs, marshmallow body masks, a bubble bath, and a 50-minute massage to royally flush away the dream of crashing at the palace. Acting like a princess will cost you $196; it's $376 for couples. Visit atlantichotelfl.com.
