Virtual Weekend Guide! Things to Do Virtually This Weekend April 24-26

Daybreaker disco house party

This is about the time gala attendees get gussied up in their fanciest gowns, suits and cocktail attires, brunch invites and day parties begin to trickle in and depending on what the weather is like that weekend, everyone is out and about but alas, not anytime soon #coronavirus!  We’re treading new territory where lockdown, isolation, WFH and quarantine are the terms dujour describing our day to day state. Many of us are homebound due to different types of shelter-in-place orders and if you’re looking for something to do to make the weekend, feel somewhat like a weekend, we’ve gathered up a list of virtual things to do to keep you occupied and hopefully take your mind off the constant barrage of bad to worse news. Dance parties, cooking demo, musical performance, Insta LIVE workouts and more things to do at home during lockdown because let’s face it, virtual events will be our new reality for a while.
