Or as Rihanna once sang, “Cheers to the freaking the weekend!” But what is the weekend during a pandemic?
Secondly, you and your guests can purchase tickets for via a private ticketing page.
*Food and drinks can be purchased online or at the theater.
For some of us heading outdoors is still not an option. Afterall we are still in the midst of the pandemic, with many unknowns.
However, it’s been several months and we are all a little tired of binging Netflix until bedtime in fuzzy socks.
One way to shake things up, is by transforming what would typically be a solo Netflix binge to a multi-person “extremely extra” virtual watch party.
Step 1: Pick a theme!
Step 2: Call up the squad and invite them.
If you’re like me, and you’re the Martha S. of the group send
e-invites that correspond to the theme.
Step 3: Upon confirming attendance, pick your favorite streaming service
and have everyone download the respective extension.
Personally, I have been enjoying Netflix/Prime and more recently Sling.
Step 4: Select movie to match theme, but if you’re feeling spicy, pick
something totally random.
Step 5-however many additional you require or desire:
Select attire, stock up/create/order your desired foods and beverages.
Within our group we have decided having a common theme for
food /a signature cocktail has helped us to feel a sense of normalcy.
While I’ve only done this with my close circle, if you are adventurous or looking for a way to meet new people, in a fun virtual space, be on the lookout for fun pop-ups like Globey’s Pajamas and Prosecco Movie Night!
Inhale and Exhale, but make it fresh air!
Whether you are hunkered down with company, or enjoying a limited friend bubble that you are comfortable with, a great option for this weekend is to pack a basket (or your favorite tote) and head outside for a picnic. Isolating solo? Then pack a book or magazine not your usual genre or style and head out nonetheless. Taking yourself on dates are amazing!
(Remind me to describe the how in another post.)
Picnics could be as simple as grabbing a blanket, picking up food from your favorite spot and finding a comfortable spot outside. To as extravagant as planning a menu, packing a basket and cooler, blankets and games, while repurposing throw pillows and picking up fresh flower to enhance the ambience!
I will confess that last weekend we picnicked in a very extravagant manner...and I loved it!
We got dressed up, chilled copious amounts of Brut, noshed on petite cakes and tuned in to virtually celebrate Veuve Clicquot’s Toast to the Polo Classic.
It was everything, and I am planning to do an indoor version as temperatures continue to drop!
