The most important holiday in February is quickly approaching: Valentine's Galentine's Day. You might have missed Cupid's arrow this year? Totally ok, because whatever your relationship status is there's another cause for celebration: your girlfriends.

Grab your squad and celebrate each other because let's face it, we run this motha. From an undie run to DIY workshops to all-night soirées, we've compiled a list of happenings across the city (arranged by date of the week) that will make for an unforgettable holiday weekend. And while you're partying it up, always remember: uteruses before duderuses. Now go out there and make Leslie Knope proud.

P.S. here's a handy gift guide if you're wondering what to get your besties and if you know of anymore events, send us a tip via our tipline.
