The first time I ever heard of Galentine's Day was on Park and Recreation. Which, by the way, is a fantastic show that you can watch on Netflix and Hulu. Alicia Clancy has put together a book "celebrating badass female friendships." Or as Leslie Knope would have said, "Ovaries before brovaries." This is the perfect book to give to your best galpal. It includes Galentineisms, cocktail recipes, games, and snack ideas to throw your very own Galentine's Day celebration. Do yourself and your girlfriends a favor and get this book.
