For year brands and businesses have tried to make Valentine’s Day as big of an event in Australia as it is overseas, and whilst it’s definitely caught on, people have had no trouble at all welcoming the new Galentine’s Day celebration without second thought. ‘
Invented by the hilariously perfect Leslie Knope in Parks and Recreation, Galentine’s Day invites women to spend a day with their closes girlfriends as they celebrate each other the day before Valentine’s Day.
If you’re keen to show your number one ladies how much you appreciate them today, it isn’t too late!
Electra House Hotel is throwing a Galentine’s Day party tonight filled with special drinks and prizes.
“We are throwing a Galentine’s day party the night before Valentine’s Day. With door prizes from Studio Pilates and Adelaide Mobile Massage available on the evening, there will also be drinks specials and complimentary glasses of Bird in Hand Sparkling Pinot Noir on arrival,” they wrote in their Facebook event.
“The Galentine’s Day event is the perfect opportunity for those who don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day, but still want something to celebrate, whether that be celebrating single life, or just a bunch of ‘ladies celebrating ladies’ (or whoever your besties may be!)."
For those of you are also a little bitter about Valentine’s Day and would rather gather around and talk sh*t about your ex, Electra Hotel also has the perfect event for you tomorrow!
“Not feeling the Valentine's Day vibe this year? We've got your back”, Electra wrote on Facebook about their Anti-Valentine’s Day night.
“Bring your best (or worst!) stories about your ex and share them next Wednesday for a chance to win Electra House gift vouchers… Plus drinks specials, broken-heart pinatas and more!”
But of course, if you do plan on celebrating Valentine’s Day with your special someone, Electra does have a romantic dinner you can book!
