Valentine’s Day is generally either seen as an exciting excuse for a bonus date night or a Hallmark holiday to scoff at. But if you’re not in a relationship, it can be extra painful. Unless, of course, you use it as an excuse to celebrate the other people you love – your gal pals. Whether or not you’re not interested in acknowledging Single’s Awareness Day or are just using it as an excuse to host a fun female get together, Valentine’s Day is as good for dates as it is a reason to have an epic girl’s night out. Here’s where to take your gal pals to truly celebrate the best relationships in your life.
