By | February 10, 2021

Girls’ night is the best night, am I right? This year, whether you’re single or attached, have yourself a grand ol’ Valentine’s Day celebration by celebrating a day early with your gal pals. We call this oh-so-important holiday, Galentine’s Day!

BABALU virtual cocktail class

Margaritas, sangria, cocktails – the possibilities are endless when it comes to what you can create during a private virtual cocktail class with BABALU’s drink master, Michelle Laverty, or Lav for short. Here’s how to do it. First, contact Lav to set a date and determine what kind of cocktails you want to create. Then, pick up the drink kits from the BABALU location of your choosing the day of the class. Simply sign in to the virtual meeting platform you and Lav agreed to use and your crew will be well on its way to becoming master mixologists! The 30ish-minute class is interactive and informative, so be ready to ask questions and learn not only how to make the cocktails, but the history behind ingredients. Cheers!

Bluff City Toffee chocolatey goodness

There is no problem chocolate can’t fix, especially when your chocolate appears in the form of Bluff City Toffee goodness! This Memphis-made sweet treat is next level. Stephanie Upshaw’s toffee comes in three varieties – Dark Chocolate Pecan Sea Salt, Milk Chocolate Pecan and White Chocolate Macadamia Nut. The toffee is made by hand in small batches using just a few simple, natural ingredients. Think butter, sugar, nuts, chocolate, as well as sea salt for one flavor. There are no added preservatives, and every batch is 100% gluten-free. Snag a box (or all three!) from local retailers or from the Bluff City Toffee storefront to enjoy with your besties. It’s located in Racquet Club Plaza at 5160 Sanderlin, Suite 5, and is open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1-4 p.m. 

STIX Collierville sushi and champagne

STIX Collierville is combining two things just about every gal pal loves – sushi and champagne. For $20, you and your BFF can pair a Tigers Roll with two mini bottles of bubbly. We’ll cheers to that! The Tigers Roll features spicy tuna, crunchy shrimp tempura and fresh cucumber, topped with spicy eel sauce and sweet soy sauce. Enjoy this Galentine’s Day steal through dine-in service or curbside pickup. If you prefer the latter, look for the designated parking spot in front of the restaurant and give the number listed on the sign a call to let them know you’ve arrived. You’ll be well on your way to sushi and champagne heaven shortly!

Alright, girl gang. A fabulous Feb. 13 awaits you. You’re armed with all the tea you need to make it the best Galentine’s Day yet!
