A term coined by the Leslie Knope character from the “Parks and Recreation” T.V. show, Galentine’s Day refers to the day before Valentine’s Day, during which ladies gather their good friends together and try to have much more fun than they would if they had a date on “V” Day… since sometimes that can be a bummer for single (better term: independent) ladies. (Sorry dudes: if you’re a sensitive single guy and you’re feeling down, there’s just no easy way to coin your pain into a catch phrase like this.) So Texas ladies, here are a great bunch of Galentine’s Day tips you should know (as if you already didn’t!)
Galentine’s Day Tips Every Independent Texas Woman Should Know
Don’t Kill ‘Em With Kindness, Do it With Karaoke!
Get your ladies together and find yourself a karaoke spot to belt those tunes out and kill the blues! Whether you feel you have a heart or not, it gets you right in the feels to hear your best lady-bud belt out Prince’s “Kiss.”
Candy Is Dandy But Wine Is Fine!
Whether it’s a night in with the lovely ladies in your life or an organized event like a tasting and tour, wine is always fine, and Texas has plenty homegrown varietals to help soothe those heartstrings. From the supermarket or direct from the vineyard, you can always find the Texas vintage that understands your issues.

No one says that ladies have to sit home and sample hors d’oeuvres quietly over tea. What’s better than a Texas steak dinner? A Texas steak dinner with a group of your best gal pals, talking about work, their week ahead, and the juices flowing from that medium rare tenderloin that was cooked by someone other than them – that’s what! Happy Galentine’s Day, Texas ladies!
