The pandemic has changed the way we have fun, as we need to find new forms of entertainment at home. Until last year, anyone who wanted to unwind and lose up would go out, but now, it’s not that easy. Typical home activities, like binge-watching of new Netflix series or playing video games, are overrated after a year of doing them. What to do then when the pandemic is still going and a night out is still not the same as years ago? Here are some interesting ideas for a night in – alone or with close friends.

Online escape room and other fun options

Modern-day technology is highly advanced, and now, all those fun activities you’ve been doing in real life, you can try out online. Interested? We’re not talking about streaming platforms instead of an evening at a cinema. It’s more about such fun activities like finding a way out in an escape room…online. Yes, it’s an option. Games that work the same way as real-life escape rooms are a real hit in the era of the pandemic. TimeOut listed the best of them if you feel intrigued and think about trying some of them. 

Online activities that reflect real-life experiences are quite vast. The possibilities are almost endless. What else is there to do in a virtual world instead of in a real one? You can organize a house party. There is even a special app for that. Hang out with your friends without leaving your own home. You might even have a game night with them – all entirely online. If you miss more thrilling experiences of real life, like blood rush in a casino, you can have that in a digital version, too. All you have to do is enter an online casino on sites like VegasSlotsOnline. You don’t even need money, as you can choose free slots. Everything is safe and trustworthy, with the fun guaranteed! 

Get involved with a podcast

It might not seem great and exciting at first but give it a chance. Podcasts became so popular that you can find one on every subject. They became more engaging, too. It’s no longer seminar-type audio, but it really might be an exciting radio drama. Criminal podcasts might be a great example of that. If you are into mystery, trickery, deceit and crime, it might be something just for you.

Shake up the cocktails shaker

If you can’t go to a party, make a party come to you. You don’t have to invite a lot of friends over, your family or housemates. To make it look and taste like the best party out on the town, don’t forget about cocktails. There is no better time to learn new recipes for alcoholic beverages than the pandemic and isolation at home. If you have a shaker somewhere deep in your kitchen cabinet, take it out and dust it off. BBC website offers a variety of different cocktail recipes you might try out and serve to your friends and family.  

Make a feast

No matter if you are passionate about cooking or not, you might spend some time in the kitchen. Try out those new recipes you’ve always wanted to check or improve the cooking skills you already have. When staying at home, you can easily make a real feast, even if just for yourself.  

Dance like no one is watching…

…because no one does. Once again, make yourself a party. Find a playlist that will make you want to move your body and dance the night away – so what that at home? Fun is fun, no matter where. If you don’t live alone, that’s even better. The more, the merrier. But a one-person party is still a party, so as we said before, dance like no one is watching.

Pick up a new skill online

These days, you can do online anything, even learn something new. Is there any skill you’ve always wanted to acquire? You have all the time in the world now. Find an online webinar, course or lecture and learn something new. There won’t be a better time for that, as you will go back to your busy life once all of this is over.
