Galentine’s Day Brunch – February 8, 2020

For our February brunch event, we channeled our inner Leslie Knope – the only person that loves brunch more than we do! Geek Girl Brunch Raleigh/Durham hosted a Galentine’s brunch to celebrate female friendships! Popularized by the television series Parks and Recreation, this holiday is all about women celebrating women.

Hosted at Irregardless cafe in Raleigh, North Carolina, these poetic and noble land mermaids enjoyed an extensive brunch menu, including a variety of vegan and vegetarian options! The only thing missing was a casual game of Cones of Dunshire.

“We need to remember what’s important in life: friends, waffles, and work. Or waffles, friends, work. Doesn’t matter, but work is third.” – Leslie Knope

True to our “uteruses before duderuses ” theme, we collected donations for local human service organizations. Many girls in developing countries and low-income areas have limited access to feminine products. This often impacts their ability to go to school and engage in other activities. Brunchettes received a raffle ticket for each donation of pads and tampons, and many brunchettes went home with prizes!
