Roses are red. Violets are blue. We're using Valentine's Day as an excuse to get together with our girls and booze it up… and so should you. Join us the week of V-Day for a screening of Sex In The City Part I, and tip back a Cosmo or two.
We can all readily acknowledge that the corrupt minds at Hallmark and the string pulling of the fresh-cut flower unions can make us feel pretty lame this time of year. We shake our fists at you, Valentine’s Day. All too often our options for this hallowed tradition are pretty much limited to: A. Begging or last minute reservations for a pricey pix-fixe feast; B. throwing ‘bows with these guys in the Hallmark Aisle, and scoring a Whitman’s Sampler in the nick of time; or C. Hanging out with your pals Ben, Jerry, & Jack Daniels just waiting for it all to be over. This year we entreat you, dear Scout, to shift your focus to those who have weathered every romantic storm with you over the years. The people who love you no matter what – no matter your state of hair, dress, or heartbreak. Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to lose that loving feeling! Just show the love to your girls. And it’s high time you clinked martini glasses together, don’t you think?
As the great Carrie Bradshaw once said, “The most important break-up rule: no matter who broke your heart, or how long it takes to heal, you’ll never go through it without your friends.” So don’t let commercial romance get the better of you this Valentine’s day, Scout. On Thursday, February 12, ladies and lovebirds alike will descend upon the Plaza Theatre for an all-out Galentine’s Festivity the likes of which this city has never seen. Taking to the silver screen? Why none other than the quadfecta of Carrie, Samantha, Miranda and Charlotte. Just to sweeten the pot, you'll also receive a complimentary Cosmopolitan, courtesy of the Plaza – because you and your gal pals are going to need something to cheers with, undoubtedly. (Possibly to the best Valentine’s day gathering to-date?) And perhaps the greatest thing (aside from getting your acting a date)? The reassurance that comes with knowing you have to spend three hours planning and outfit, over-analyze the holiday greeting that he scored at the Wal-Mart greeting card aisle, or bust out the emergency Scotch whilst wearing your softest pants. Where would we be without our girls?
