With the national day of love upon us, love for your best girls (and guys!) is definitely a priority. Galentine's Day, occurring the day before Valentine's Day, is all about “ladies celebrating ladies,” and has become an unofficial holiday after debuting on the hit TV show Parks and Recreation. Consider these fun options for Galentine's Day in Orlando this year to celebrate the special bond you've got with your best friends!

The Glass Knife
While not an official Galentine's Day event, The Glass Knife has a handful of Valentine's Day-themed desserts worth mentioning. Round up your crew and stop in to try one of the specialties. We're loving the Strawberry Cheesecake Heart plated dessert + champagne pairing available for $16. The dessert is a light, cheesecake mousse filled with lemon curd and house-made strawberry mousse on a strawberry cake base. The cake is coated with white chocolate glacage, garnished with a white chocolate feather and dried rose petal. Finally, it is topped with a strawberry sauce, rich chocolate creameaux, chocolate powder and tangy lemon curd. Yum!!
