7 Ways to Celebrate Galentine's Day with Your Girl Gang


Cuffing = Death

By Caitlyn Hanlon

Valentine’s Day can suck if you’re single. But let’s be honest, some of us would much rather spend the day with our girl gang. Our leading ladies have been with us to hell and back, from the good times to nights we were too busy chugging Vodka Crans and making moves on the cutie at house parties. Point is, celebrate a day of love and memories with your hype women.

  1. Pizza Pizza

Pizza is always a fat mood. Get into an Adidas tracksuit (because you still want to look like a baddie) and head over to Varsity. While you're at it go to CVS and grab a pint of cookie dough ice cream for dessert! You and your gals can have a cozy girls' night and celebrate your love for one another. Who needs a significant other, anyway? Don’t forget to show off your cute fits by taking A1 selfies for the gram.

2. Escape the 14th

For more adventurous people, why not escape the horrors of Valentine’s Day by trying to escape the Mystery Room, on the third floor of Destiny USA. Rather than sleuthing on your ex and his new boo, use your detective skills to escape this room. You have 50 minutes to find hidden clues, decode messages, and solve puzzles in order to find your way out!

3. Live, Love, Chocolate

We all know chocolates are a staple on Valentine’s Day. While you might not have a significant other to buy them for you, get a heart-shaped chocolate pizza from the Chocolate Pizza Company and treat yo ‘self! No one loves you more than you. The best part is they’ll ship it right to your dorm. You can hang with your besties and turn on a classic girl empowerment movie. Embody your inner Elle Woods with a Legally Blonde marathon or watch the confident Miranda Priestly in The Devil Wears Prada and let your boldness shine.

4. Bottoms Up

Lucky for you Valentine’s Day falls on Thirsty Thursday! All of the SU singles will be looking for someone to get down with tonight. If you are too, then Harry’s Grille and DJ’s on the Hill are great places to let loose with your ladies. Wear your cutest fit, put on some red lipstick, and make your way to the bar. While you’re there, split a pitcher of your favorite drink and dance the night away with your soul sisters or potential suitors.

5. Dome is Where the Heart is

There are no days off from tailgating at SU. Avoid pricey restaurants crowded with couples and cheer for your ‘Cuse women’s basketball team as they play North Carolina. After all, nothing says Galentine’s Day better than by showing your support for the SU ladies as they beat NC State at 7 P.M.

6. Eat Your Heart Out

Dinosaur Bar-B-Que wants you to “Eat, drink, and be messy.” This year celebrate Galentine’s Day with Dinosaur Bar-B-Que’s V-Day specials, made especially for you single peeps out there. Dinosaur has a menu of special anti-Valentine’s Day drinks, including Thirst Trap and Donkey Punch. Don't set a Thirst Trap, drink one.

7. We Stan a Queen

Everyone who is anyone knows Ariana Grande released her album "thank you, next" just in time for V-Day. This album will make you glad you’re single. Put that sh*t on full blast and scream to “break up with your girlfriend, i'm bored,” “7 rings,” and the OG “thank you, next.” Bump these jams while driving around ‘Cuse celebrating Galentine’s Day because there’s no crying in the club when you’re with your sisters!
