Solihull Editorial 29th Jun, 2022   0

During the pandemic, many have become acquainted with transferring their social interactions to virtual platforms. At this point, many have grown tired of zoom calls, which is why this article will explore five ways to spice up virtual social meetings with friends and family from close or afar.

Casino Night

Online casinos are increasingly popular, and the medium is a perfect opportunity to gather friends for a classy evening. Decide on a fancy dress code, gather the finest of casino snacks and drinks, and play some rounds of live poker. Online casinos often offer generous promotions, such as the Heyspin bonus code, which can be useful for a gamblers evening.

Campfire Evening

For international outdoor-lover friends, or simply for those who love campfire snacks, a virtual campfire evening is a cozy option. Whether the participants decide to sit by an actual fireside or simply choose to light some representative candles, it will be an evening filled with the sounds and smells of a perfect summer evening. Smores and hotdogs are also simple add-ons to fit the mood.

Virtual Scavenger Hunt

A virtual scavenger hunt might fit the bill for those who are more tech savvy and want to raise the difficulty level. The games can either be found online, such as “Race for the lost tomb” provided by Confetti, or made by the participants. Another option is to use readily available templates from websites such as Pinterest.

Premier Gala

Movie lovers may be able to enjoy a virtual premier gala. The premier gala doesn’t necessarily need to overlap with actual film premiers, but can simply be for a movie the group has longed to see. Through the event, participants can act as a film critic jury, or simply enjoy the film as regular viewers. Naturally, a premier should feature gala-worthy snacks and perhaps a red carpet.

Online Fitness Class

A great way to motivate oneself to workout more or better is to do it with friends. There are plenty of options for sharing the sweat virtually. You can choose to join an online fitness class, take turns creating workouts and lead them for each other, or simply stream free workouts on YouTube and do them together. Either way, the joint workout adventure will help create accountability as well as create a social space.
