As Leslie Knope said on Parks and Recreation, February 13 – Galentine’s Day-- is a special day of “ladies celebrating ladies” before spending February 14 with their sweethearts. We have rounded up a list of Galentine & Valentine activities around town from events to restaurants to hotel overnight packages.
The Champagnery – Looking for something sparkly and bubbly to enjoy with the gals? Head to The Champagnery on lower Frankfort Ave. where you can enjoy sparkling wines from all around the world. This guided tasting will feature exceptional and unique Rosé sparkling wines, a special takeaway gift, and will be taught by our delightful sommelier, Tony Majors! Tickets to the tasting are $35 per person, with three tasting times at 5:30, 7, and 8:30pm on February 13th.

Work the Metal – Head to Butchertown with your squad on February 13th to create one-of-a-kind, beautiful “heart-felt” wall art during this themed sip & paint class led by Little Golden Fox, out of Madison Indiana.
