Who says you have to go out to have fun?!

We all love to be sociable, but lots of us agree that it’s even better to be sociable from the comfort of your own home! Whether it’s the weather that’s making you want to stay in, or you just don’t want to change out of your pyjamas, here are some suggestions to ensure you have fabulous stories to tell without having to venture outside.

An unusual evening with friends from home

Everyone has heard of the escape room craze. Well, now there are online escape rooms! Companies like Escape Live have developed the idea of playing these immersive experiences virtually and have loads of different rooms to choose from.

You might choose to play via a video escape room where you and your team control a games master. The extra challenge and potential hilarity of a group trying to control one person is a story itself. Alternatively, you might opt for the online version where you share the screen, find and solve clues with your team. There are also 360 virtual escape rooms where you can explore the room as if you were there.

Have a look at the huge range of rooms they have–there’s definitely something for everyone.

A serene and peaceful activity

You might have seen people trying to use the old Bob Ross videos to learn how to paint. These Youtube videos have ranged from stunning pieces to the…well, less stunning!

However, there are actual classes to help nurture you and encourage you to develop a new skill. If you want to feel the sophistication and freedom of immersing yourself in art, why not try out an online class like some of the ones listed here.

These live classes run frequently, allowing you to dip in and out of what you want to do with no commitments and the knowledge that if you’ve missed one, you’ll probably find a similar one soon enough.

And think of how impressive it will be when you get to the stage where you can challenge everyone to a paint-off and beat them! Or decorate your home with your pictures. Your choice!

An evening across the pond

While it is lovely to spend time with friends, virtually or not, there are times when you just want to get stuck into a game all on your own.

Online casinos are becoming the rage now with their vast variety of games to choose from. With the world at your fingertips, why not choose New Jersey online casinos, the state that is home to Atlanta City. If you’ve never tried an online casino before, never fear. Unlike physical casinos, if you want to try out a new game, there are options to do demos for you to get the hang of them.

For some classic old-school glitz and glamour, there are games such as blackjack, roulette, and baccarat to get immersed in. With websites offering guides as to the online casino that might best suit you, you can create an almost tailor-made evening of fun. Here are a couple of suggestions to get you started.

Plus, the more you learn on these online casino websites, the more likely it is that you could confidently host your own casino night with friends one day, should you choose. Think of the poker episode of Friends and you’ll have some great ideas for an unusual night!

These are only a few of the options out there. So, get ready to rock up to work the next day, filled with stories of your unusual evening and brimming with new skills that will surprise and delight!
