Everyone knows Thursday is Valentine’s Day.*
Some people know that the day before — Wednesday, February 13 — is Galentine’s Day. (The spinoff from a 2010 “Parks and Recreation” TV show has since become a day for “ladies celebrating ladies.”**)
To help women celebrate their always-there-for-you friends — and honor all the special friends she’s made during more than 15 years in Westport — Bonnie Marcus is throwing an open house at her private design studio.
From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, she’s giving away beautiful, personally created Valentine’s (and Galentine’s) Day cards — plus custom-designed chocolates and sparkling lemonade.
It’s a perfect way to pick up something for a friend who needs a pick-me-up (particularly if she does not have a Valentine).
The Bonnie Marcus Collection is at 5 Riverside Avenue. Look for the pink and red balloons next to Arezzo restaurant.
