Valentine's Day can be a total bummer — no love interest, allergic to chocolate, or can't stand the thought of chugging champagne on a Wednesday night in preparation for an awkward first date? Well, that's what Galentine's Day is for.

For the unfamiliar, this celebratory gals-only event is traditionally held on Feb. 13 (and by traditionally we mean according to Leslie Knope), but since the now famous Parks and Rec brunch scene first aired, the day has taken on many iterations. While we've yet to find any Charleston event that includes a gift bag with a bouquet of hand-crocheted flower pens, a mosaic portrait made from crushed bottles of diet soda, and a personalized 5,000 word essay on why the recipient is so awesome, there are some sweet Galentine's celebrations around town. Check 'em out:
