If Leslie Knope has taught us anything — and, the former Deputy Director of Pawnee, Indiana's Parks and Recreation Department turned City Councillor has taught us many, many, things — it's that Galentine's Day is the best day of the year. That'd be February 13, an occasion dedicated to celebrating female friendships. Yes, it's a date worth firing up a few waffle irons for and kicking it breakfast-style.
This year, Bakery Lane is taking inspiration from the beloved television character with a Galentine's Day party of its own. It's bound to be just as great as every affectionate name Leslie has ever called Ann Perkins ("beautiful tropical fish" and "poetic noble land mermaid" are just two of them). And, just as exciting as the time Leslie met Joe Biden. On this special occasion, April Ludgate wouldn't just stand in the corner and glare, or try to convince you that she's a witch. As for Donna Meagle, she wouldn't be too busy live-tweeting the Death Canoe film series either.
On the agenda from 6pm is champagne, comedy from Kat Davidson, an all-round focus on self-love, and a number of optional workshops. Decorate cookies with Cakes and Shit, make bracelets, drink tea and whip up your own natural beauty travel kit — all with your besties, of course.
