ITALIAN chain Prezzo is ensuring female friends get the chance to mark the day before Valentine's Day. 

What started off as a made-up day in American sitcom Parks and Recreation has now transcended into an 'unofficial holiday' for women to celebrate their female friendships. 

Galentine's Day takes place this year on Tuesday next week.

And to mark the occasion, Prezzo in Golden Square is offering 30% off food for groups of four or more as well as 50% off all Prosecco.
