With a lot of venues still being closed or partially open, the fact that people are spending more time at home still hasn’t shifted. While communities are at different stages of re-opening, traditional social gatherings are not the same and where there is any social event, it come with limitations. Offering virtual events is an easy way to bring communities together comfortably with less restrictions, and offer an unparalleled amenity experience to help your residents and tenants love where they live.
Here are 7 fun engaging virtual events that are sure to keep your residents and tenants engaged this Summer.
1. Mixology Night
With Summer in full swing, there’s a lot of refreshing mixed drinks that are sure to compliment the season. A designated host can share a couple of refreshing recipes that are easy to make with minimal ingredients that can be distributed ahead of time to all registered attendees. For our favorite Summer concoctions, we recommend a line up including a Moscow Mule, Mai Tai, Peach Daiquiri, Citrus Sangria, and Mimosa Margarita.
A trivia night gives all the potential Jeopardy and Game Show fans a chance to put all those random bits of movie binging over the years, pop culture knowledge and 7th grade history to use! Attendees can be distributed into teams either randomly or of their choosing to battle out who has the most collective knowledge.
3. Paint and Sip Party
Artsy community members and craft makers will appreciate this chance to brush up on their art skills and justification to enjoy a fresh bottle of wine while creating a masterpiece virtually from a local artist, teacher or talented volunteer.

A great way for families and communities to stay engaged is through live cooking classes and demonstrations. With more time than ever being spent in the kitchen, there’s no better time to sharpen skills and learn new recipes. Ingredients can be distributed through RSVPing ahead of time and hosted by a local culinary expert.
