So in these days of uncertainty, we’re all trying to cope. For us wine people, it’s no different.
So how have we been coping? Virtual Happy Hours!
What are Virtual Happy Hours? Just exactly what they sound like. Happy Hour done from the comfort of our own home using videoconferencing software such as Zoom or Whereby. We grab the drink of our choice, maybe some food, and just sit and chat for a bit.
These ideas aren’t really new in the wine world, since we’ve been doing virtual tastings, Twitter tastings, etc. for a long time. However, for those who aren’t accustomed to the work-from-home/quarantine/shelter-in-place life, the communication factor can be a lifesaver.
Don’t see one being organized by anyone? Then create one yourself! It’s not hard at all!!!
Today’s quarantine diary is short because I’ve got chicken in the oven that’s gonna go into a veggie soup, so yeah. Peace. Love your neighbor. Stay the eff home. Wash your hands.
