4 Ways To Celebrate Galentine's Day

February 13 rings in the sixth best holiday of the year, right behind Mardi Gras and actual Valentine’s Day: Galentine’s Day! Made famous by Leslie Knope and a slew of single-life memes, this faux-holiday is a great excuse to get your peeps together and celebrate friendship, no matter your gender or lack thereof. Here are some fun ways to kick it with your crew (that aren’t sitting on the couch and eating junk food).

1. Have a Pinterest party.

Pile into Becky’s mom’s minivan and head to Michael’s, because it’s mothereffing craft night. Whether you want to decoupage a lampshade or DIY a dog bowl, sometimes crafting on your own is less fun and more tear-your-hair-out frustrating. Doing it with your pals might actually make it enjoyable, even if you end up spilling wine on your collage.

2. Make a million-billion cookies.

Everyone loves cookies, even your friend Tori who says she can’t have gluten, sugar or do anything fun ever. Get your Rachael Ray on and bake enough heart-shaped confections to feed an army of Cupids, plus a swarm of your tipsy single friends. The best wines to pair with cookies are as follows: I don’t know? All of them, probably? Do I look like a sommelier to you?

3. Paint pottery.

Is there anything more white suburban mom than painting pottery supplied to you by a local small business, probably owned by a white suburban mom? No! Make yourself anything from a travel mug to a jewelry dish, or if you’re too lazy to put three coats of paint on something that big, make a shot glass. Or would it be a shot mug?

4. Go for a winter hike.

Disclaimer: do not do this without the proper winter garb. No, Lexi, you cannot go hiking in a peacoat and leggings. Get bundled up, hustle over to the closest trailhead, and soldier on like the Night’s Watch hero you’ve always had inside you. Handy tip: hot cocoa with peppermint Schnapps is the perfect accessory to accompany you on your trek. Make sure to snap that group pic for Insta before your fingers get too cold.

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.


On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.
