Galentine’s Day at Our South County Breakfast and Lunch Cafe

brunch in rhode islandSimilar to the Valentine’s Day holiday that this celebration was created in response to, Galentine’s Day can also be appreciated any day of the year. It is a time to show appreciation for and celebrate the other meaningful relationships in your life – your best girlfriend! Originating from the popular Parks and Recreation TV show, the idea of Galentine’s Day is to show your love and affection for all of the ladies in your life who support you throughout the year. What better way to do so than to gather at a lunch café in South County and make an afternoon of it! On the program, Leslie Knope and friends gathered in Pawnee, Indiana, to enjoy a brunch of waffles and gift-giving. However, you can celebrate your female friendships any way you want when you visit Rachel’s South County breakfast and lunch café.

The Friendsgiving of Love

What started out as a simple plotline in a beloved television program has become a nationwide sensation. Galentine’s Day, which is celebrated on February 13th, is to Valentine’s Day what Friendsgiving has become to Thanksgiving. It is an opportunity to recognize the meaningful relationships that we have with our friends outside of family and marriage situations. If nothing else, it is an excellent excuse to gather all of your girlfriends together and enjoy a brunch and just appreciate spending time together. You can do an online order of breakfast and lunch for carryout to dine at the office on Monday with your coworkers and gal-pals or meet up on the weekend and “kick it, breakfast-style” at our South County Commons restaurants.

It has been twelve years since that first episode aired, declaring February 13th as Galentine’s Day, and it has now spread around the globe. Truth be told, other countries have their own version of this friend-celebration day centered around the more popular Valentine’s Day. In Finland, they celebrate Ystavanpaiva on February 14th, while in China, they have Single’s Day on November 11th. The good news is that you can create your own traditions and then break all the rules if you want. This Day should be all about you and your best friends, so if you can’t get together around Valentine’s Day, choose another day to set aside just for yourselves. It can involve a brunch of waffles and mimosas at Rachel’s Café, followed by a day of retail therapy, spa treatments, and gift exchanges. However you want to celebrate, make sure to create a tradition of celebration for you and your friends.

Make Plans for Galentine’s Day in 2022

Whether it is just two, three, four friends, or more, getting the girls together can be a great way to celebrate friendship and overcome the winter blues.
