Valentine’s Day is a good time of year for romantically-inclined couples, but what if you just want to have fun with your gal pals? Luckily, there’s a celebration for you–Galentine’s Day! This pre-Valentine’s Day holiday was made famous by Parks & Recreation’s main lady boss, Leslie Knope, who enjoyed an annual brunch of “ladies celebrating ladies.” In the words of Leslie, “it’s only the best day of the year.”
In the spirit of celebrating our collective feminine awesomeness, here are 7 great ways to celebrate Galentine’s Day in Grove City:
1. Ladies brunch
The Sunday before or after Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to schedule brunch with the gals! Head to Cimi’s Bistro for a full brunch spread complete with mimosas, of course!
2. Practice self-love
Cultivating and creating a deeper connection of shared energy and sending it out into this world! #joy #love #laughter #worldpeace #nye2016 #ohioyoga #cbusyoga #sekoia #fitfam #bettertogether We #shook it #twerked it #moved it #tookshots and busted out a #sweatsession #laughteristhebestmedicine Thank you all for closing this year out with me. Wishing you all blessings in the new year! ✨?✨
3. Make something together
Had our first class at our new grove city shop today! All these ladies did great using @mmsmilkpaint to create awesome chippy finishes on their ohio boards! We also had two young ladies paint cute frames using #apronstrings and #eulaliessky! #oldworldnewhome #grovecityohio #paintingworkshop #missmustardseedmilkpaint #visitgrovecity
4. Go on a shopping spree
Get a little shopping in and support female-owned or co-owned businesses in the Grove City Town Center. Some places to check out are The Honey House, Country Hearth Primitives, The Farm Table, Deja Vu Boutique, Never Grow Up Boutique, The Unforgotten Piece, Old World New Home, and Read It Again Books.
5. Indulge in a sweet treat
Treat yourself and your friends to something sweet at Capital City Cakes, where you can get ice cream, cookies, cupcakes, brownies, and more. Or get tickets for Hop Yard 62‘s craft beer + cheesecake pairing for a uniquely sweet experience.
Having a sweet tooth is the worst! I would eat a cupcake everyday if my hips would let me. ? These beauties hail from my favorite Grove City biz @capitalcitycakes Note: these were frosted beautifully until I dropped my phone into them trying to take this shot ? #bloggerproblems From left to right, top: Red Velvet, Raspberry Cheesecake Bottom: Triple Choclate, Butter Pecan . . . . . #cbusfoodscene #614Eat #topcolumbusrestaurants #sixonefork #asseenincolumbus #columbus #columbusgram #columbusohio #columbusalive #columbusliving #cbus #cbus614 #cbusgram #cbusfirst #expcols #simplycolumbus #experiencecolumbus #614 #ohiogram #ohioexplored #livecbus #lifeincbus #livelocalcbus #lifeincolumbus #ohio #seethegrove #grovecity #cupcakes #capitalcitycakes
