In an effort to not exclude all the single ladies from the fun festivities of Valentine’s Day – a day of romance that is normally focused on couples – Galentine’s Day was created to give solo lovers the opportunity to celebrate the joy and brilliance of female friendship. Having transcended its birth on a popular television sitcom, Galentine’s Day is now routinely acknowledged on February 13, the day before Valentine’s Day, and brings together groups of women for camaraderie, laughter and memorable moments. Let’s face it; there’s no better place to do exactly that than in fabulous Las Vegas. So if your Galentine’s Day girls trip brings you to Sin City, here are a plethora of ways to spend it in this glimmering hot spot.

Stare at Sexy Men
What group of wild women wouldn’t enjoy ogling gorgeous guys? Considered one of the most attractive and stylish men in town, Matt Goss puts on a passionate live performance at the Mirage that includes a sensational backup band and lively dancers in cute costumes that will influence your next shopping spree. Of course, Vegas is known for its sultry side, too, which means burlesque shows galore. From Magic Mike Live, to Chippendales, to Australia’s Thunder from Down Under, you and your gal pals will be inundated with options to admire the male physique.

Crush on a Strong Woman
If female inspiration is what you seek, then look no further than the limited engagement of powerhouse vocalist Mariah Carey, whose show runs a variety of dates between the 13th and 21st. Featuring fan favorite hits, never-before-performed selections, and some lovely musical surprises, Ms. Carey’s show is guaranteed to be the musical backdrop your Galentine’s Day needs.

Get Some Sex Ed
In the comedy show, Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man, audience members are treated to a night of laughter, information and honesty. If you’re lucky, you might even get pulled up onstage for a little one-on-one tutoring.

Go Shopping
Seriously, you know your girls trip to Las Vegas is not complete with a little (or a lot of) retail therapy. Take a stroll through Fashion Show Mall for the best in trendy fashion. Hit Crystals at CityCenter for luxury labels. Get your cardio and shopping on simultaneously at Miracle Mile at Planet Hollywood. But if bargain hunting is what you crave, explore the Ross at Showcase Mall, right across the street from Park MGM. You’re sure to find a name brand treasure or two, along with a proper keepsake to mark your Galentine’s Day adventure.
