Valentine’s Day. Love. Flowers. Chocolate. You know the drill.
And yes, there are endless ways to celebrate in Kansas
City. But let’s chat about something we love even more—
For those who might not be familiar with the “holiday,” the
concept is pretty simple: Celebrating female friendships the
day before the world becomes obsessed with all things Cupid.
And our beloved city has you covered with lots of ways to
celebrate with your girl squad! Here are a few suggestions:
Brookside Boutique Crawl:
In the heart of KCMO, our beautiful
Brookside is the home to many
unique restaurants, hometown
businesses, and some of the best
boutique shopping in the city.
Grab your gal pals, start with some
caffeine (and some delicious eats)
at Heirloom Bakery & Hearth,
and wander the awning-covered
sidewalks, popping into EB and
Co, Jorjy, Lady Bye, and Coco.
Bonus? They’re all female-owned
stores! Many more options along
those streets will ensure the best way to treat
Weston Day Trip:
Just a short drive outside
the city, Weston, MO feels
like an escape to another
world. This little town has a
variety of shops, restaurants,
museums, and wine. Oh
the wine! Make it a day
trip, or stay the night at
one of their many bed
and breakfast options,
either way, you’re in for
the best escape with your
besties. While in Weston,
be sure to tour the beautiful Holladay Distillery and get a
cupcake and wine pairing at Weston Wine Company.
Chocolate, Coffee, and
Crown Town is the home
of several talented
chocolatiers, so we have
no shortage of delicious
and beautiful artisanal
chocolates for you to enjoy.
André’s Confiserie Suisse
and Panache Chocolatier
are two sweet spots for the
perfect girl gang gathering.
In addition to their awardwinning
chocolates, they offer
coffee and cocktails, which are the perfect compliments to
your sweet treats.
Servaes Brewing Co.:
As Kansas City’s only femalefronted
brewery, this is an
ideal spot to celebrate all
things girl power. Located in
Shawnee, Servaes is the home
to an assortment of innovative
beers and sodas. They are
always trying new things and
reinventing their taps, so get a
flight to sample the best that
these BFF brewers have to offer.
Not that any of us need an
excuse to plan our next Girls Night, but just in case, Galentine’s
Day in Kansas City is it!
