Valentine’s Day is coming up next month, but roses, chocolate, and Hallmark cards aren’t for everyone. If you’d rather round up your best gal pals and celebrate the joys of female friendship on Galentine’s Day, read on, because we’ve rounded up five fun ways to celebrate with your girls this year in Sacramento!
Bacon & Butter
A classic way to celebrate Galentine’s with your friends is a nice brunch. That’s tricky at the moment with current regulations due to the pandemic, however, one of the most accoladed restaurants in Sacramento, Bacon & Butter, is finding a clever workaround by offering curbside pickup so you can host your soiree at home and feed everyone with professionally made cuisine. This Michelin starred restaurant has truly delectable options for your brunch, ranging from stick-to-your-ribs biscuit and egg sandwiches to healthy yogurt with granola and bee pollen.
The Golden Bear
If you’re looking for a more mom-and-pop type restaurant, The Golden Bear is the place to go. It’s even been featured by Guy Fieri on his show, Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives! This laid-back pub has delicious, fresh, and creative food, stiff drinks, and a patio for outdoor seating. And while their events are currently on hold due to the pandemic, you should consider making this restaurant a regular spot for girls’ night because it frequently hosts trivia, dance parties, and more!
California State Capitol Park
If you’re trying to be safe due to COVID-19, an outdoor celebration is the way to go. And even in February, a picnic is a fun way to connect with your gals. Just bring a waterproof tarp for under your picnic blanket, some cozy blankets to snuggle in, and a thermos of hot cocoa! For the best location, have your gal pals meet you at California State Capitol Park. This lovely green space is conveniently located downtown. When you’re down eating, stroll along the walking paths to the World Peace Rose Garden at one end of the park.
If your friends aren’t content to just sit around and chat, you’re going to want an activity to get everyone moving. Head to Smart Axe in Rancho Cordova for a fun activity that will have your friends talking about it the rest of the year! In this stress-relieving activity, you can hurl axes at targets! And don’t worry, you’ll get trained on how to throw the axes safely before you start. You can reserve a socially-distanced lane on their website. They have a great menu of tasty food and drinks for your party to enjoy, too.
AR Workshop Sacramento
If you want something unique to do, try a group crafting workshop at AR Workshop Sacramento. This woman-owned DIY spot is the perfect place for a girls’ night. You can book a private party that includes materials and instruction for one of their many crafting projects. Or, if you’d rather host the party at your house, you can pick up some DIY crafting kits to go.
