This one's for the girls that online stalk your crushes for you, text you to make sure got home safely and will shout you a coffee just because.
This year, we're all about Galentine's Day - because friends who hold your hair back when you're vomiting and help you choose which pics to upload to Insta deserve to be celebrated.
We've planned some pretty wholesome dates for you and your gal pals. From stuffing your faces with fried chicken to a self care spa day. It's all about celebrating friendship!
If you're in a lovey dovey relationship, head to our blog on this year's best date spots. And you can sod off with your cute handholding and inside jokes, k?
1. Drink and Draw
The Creative Hub | Every Thursday night 7-9pm
You don't have to be the next Leonardo da Vinci to join this art class. Get your gals together for a fun, creative night of drawing! Run by Mads Francis, a Melbourne-based fashion illustrator, these intimate groups are limited to eight people. Create a work of art while having an ol' chin-wag with your mates (snacks included, of course). Our tip? The more wine you drink, the better your art will look. Book your tickets here.
Eat at... MoVida Next Door
164 Flinders St
Eat & Earn 10% LVN
Afterwards, head down to Melbourne's iconic Hosier Lane and to MoVida Next Door. Expect MoVida's signature modern take on authentic Spanish tapas. But with more of a kick. This lively hangout spot is daring, electric and upbeat. It's perfect for a quick nibble and chilled drink at the bar.
2. Anti V-Day
Loop Project Space & Bar | 14 February 7-11pm
Like Jennifer Gardner, sometimes we all need to let off some steam and bash a heart-shaped piñata at an I Hate Valentines Day party hosted by Jessica Biel. Lucky for us, Events Uncommon is hosting an Anti-Valentine's Day Girls' Night Out! It'll involve less piñata smashing and more bonding with like-minded females.
At the Loop, you'll enjoy a drink on arrival (bubbles, house wine or beer), listen to a speech from a resilience coach and watch the new comedy The Breaker Upperers! There'll even be pamper prizes to be won and a free gift from the organisers. Interested? Click here to book.
Eat at... Dragon Hot Pot
Russell St | Elizabeth St | Swanston St | Glen Waverley | QV Centre | Box Hill
Eat & Earn 20% LVN
Head to Dragon Hot Pot before or after the party – their Russell St store is open 24 hours so the party won't be stopping early. Grab your ladies for some self-serve, pay by weight hot pot. No need to impress any dates while you're slurping down some of their 100 ingredients on offer. 😉
3. Netflix and Chicken
Your home | Whenever you fancy
Some days, you just want to get the girls together to lounge around and... do nothing. We totally get that. So here's what we are loving on the ol' Netflix, as told by our in-house TV guru, Kristen.
If you don't already know the entire movie synopsis without actually having watched it... How? But anyway, the world has been overrun by a weird monster takes the form of it's viewers biggest fears. If you lay your eyes on it you instantly kill yourself - so naturally, everyone's wearing blindfolds. On another note, Machine Gun Kelly makes an acting cameo, snatching up a quick minute of fame - kinda like that time he had beef with Eminem... Wild.
Dan Humphrey from Gossip Girl (okay, he's Joe in this movie) gets creepy obsessed with a aspiring female writer and makes some pretty wild moves to keep 'em together. No spoilers, but expect chaos. Complete chaos.
A direct quote from a colleague - "Ozark is like The Big Short meets Breaking Bad." We're not quite sure what this means, but it sure does found like fun. This crime-thriller features Jason Bateman laundering money in the back-woods of Missouri. With his family. Our interest has been piqued.
