Stores are flooded with paper hearts and heart-shaped boxes of candy in preparation for Cupid to grace us with his arrows. But what if you’re not currently in a relationship - or even dating? If you don’t quite have a reason to celebrate this Valentine’s Day, gather your best girlfriends because Datz Restaurant Group is cooking up something to get excited about - it's Galentine’s Day!

You’ve seen the phrase on wine glasses at Target, now Datz and Roux Tampa are designing a limited-time specialty cocktail and highlighting seasonal menu items for two days only. Each gal receives a complimentary passion fruit frozen cocktail. Now do we have your attention?

If you’re in a relationship and planning on spending the 14th with your significant other, not a problem. Datz is hosting a Galentine’s breakfast (7am-11am) on the 13th, and Roux has a brunch (10am-3pm) covered on the 17th. Extending the holiday of love to a weeklong celebration, stress-free.

Creme Brûlée French Toast, Short Rib Biscuit Benedict, and Datz Good Hash are on the menu for Galentine’s Day breakfast. Can’t make a weekday morning meal? The Saturday brunch at the Cajun-Creole cuisine restaurant, Roux Tampa, can be penciled into your schedule. You may find yourself writing love letters to the menu including Banana Foster pancakes, Abita Beer-Battered Crab Beignets, and Jambalaya - not to mention that same complimentary passion fruit frozen cocktail. Celebrating the single life has never tasted so good!!

Maybe you are in a relationship but want the best of both worlds, there's no harm in celebrating the day of love twice... or even three times. Kick the stereotype that Valentine’s Day must be about declaring love for your significant other. Galentine’s Day is a new way to celebrate the holiday of love making memories with your best girlfriends while posting Boomerangs of the gang sipping passion fruit frozen cocktails.
