According to everyone's favorite character on Parks and Recreation (i.e. one Leslie Knope), Galentine's Day occurs every year on February 13th, the night before the "big" event, and calls for the wining and dining of your best girlfriends - no boyfriends or husbands allowed. And hey, whether you're single and drinking alone on the 14th, or awaiting a hot date, there's no denying that an established Girls' Night Out will be more fun than any couple's massage could ever be. So ladies, mark your calendars, gather the girls, and head to one of these NYC spots for the best Galentine's dinner ever.
