With apologies to the makers of the Mel Gibson/Helen Hunt rom-com What Women Want, one doesn't need extra-sensory powers of perception figure out what makes a woman happy. Just provide some chocolate, a little pampering and a chance to catch up with their girlfriends, and the ladies will be well satisfied. At least that's the approach that Third Degree Glass Factory (5200 Delmar Boulevard; 314-367-4527 or www.stlglass.com) is taking with Cool Chicks & Hot Glass, the studio's girls night out that takes place tonight starting at 6 p.m. Besides appreciating the handiwork, women can partake in complimentary massages and snack on free chocolate delights provided by Kakao Chocolate. If ladies want to get in on the glass-blowing action, they can work with Third Degree staffers to create their own paper weight, wineglass charm or cheese knife. And because every girl's night out is enhanced with a little booze, there will be a cash bar on hand and delicious daiquiris ($5 each) to enjoy. Entrance is free, and prices to create your own glass treasures range from $20 to $30. For more information, call 314-367-4527 or visit www.stlglass.com.
