Where To Take Your Girlfriends This Galentine’s DayAuthor:Michelle Konstantinovsky
Yes, yes, February 14 is right around the corner, but romance isn’t the only kind of love to celebrate this month. As Amy Poehler and Rashida Jones taught us on Parks and Rereation, Galentine’s Day is the perfect time to tell your lady friends how much they mean to you. And while female friendships should be honored every day of the year, observing Galentine’s Day gives you an ideal excuse to bond, give each other props, and indulge in some much-deserved pampering. While the Parks and Recs gals commemorated their love on February 13, you can feel free to swoop on these sweet deals any day of the month:
