7th Annual Palentine's Day Celebration!


What's Palentine's Day?

It's a slightly updated version of Galentine's Day (, which was created by Amy Poehler's character Leslie Knope on the TV show "Parks and Recreation", and it's a day to celebrate the cunning, pliable, chestnut-haired sunfishes in your life ... in other words, your women and gender nonbinary friends!

We'll craft the women and enby folks in our lives fun, empowering Palentine's Day cards while enjoying delicious food and drinks from local, women-owned breakfast heaven Short Stack Eatery, who will be reserving a few tables just for us.

Children are welcome!


Come by anytime between 2 and 4pm to grab a bite and make some cards.


We'll provide some materials and the necessary utensils (scissors, tape, glue) but feel free to bring your own card decorations to share - lace, colored paper, stickers, fabric scraps - whatever inspires you!


Short Stack doesn't have a parking lot, and street parking can be hit-or-miss. However, there are two ramps nearby: the State Street Capitol Parking Ramp, and the Overture Center Garage. It's also highly accessible by bus.


Short Stack is an accessible building. All genders are welcome at this event, as are children.

Short Stack has gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options.

If you have another accessibility concern, we encourage you to reach out directly to the organizers at


While this event is open to all genders, Madison Women in Tech deliberately curates spaces for and by women and nonbinary folks. Men who attend are expected to listen, and not center themselves or their experiences.

All attendees agree to adhere to the Madison Women in Tech code of conduct:
