    Though COVID-19 restrictions are still in place throughout most of the region, there's still plenty of room to be creative with your next date night. Being under quarantine is rough, but an exciting new activity with someone special can help to ease the pressure.

     

    Here is a list of some fun virtual events that you can enjoy from home with a partner, friends or even by yourself!

    Go to an open mic night: 

    Virtual Grandslam: Not Today!

     

    What better way to hop outside of your comfort zones than to join a virtual open mic? First Person Arts's Virtual StorySlams are monthly programs where anyone - yes, anyone - can share their stories! On Saturday, November 21, you can join the November installment of this open mic series. This month's theme is Not Today; a night about putting your foot down, crossing the line and telling people off. Whether you come to share a story, or just listen to others, First Person Arts always shows their audience a great time.

    Upgrade your game night:

    More than Bad Things Happen in Philadelphia Quizzo

     

    How much do you know about the bad (and good) things that happen in Philadelphia? Test your knowledge on Friday, November 20, with this fun, virtual quizzo night, benefitting the Bethesda Project. Quizzo is a beloved Philly tradition, so what better way to spend a game night in with your partner or some friends? The winning team walks away with a $100 Amazon Gift Card.

    Take a cooking class:

    Virtual Cooking Class: "Have Yourself a Cajun Holiday"

     

    We've all been working on our kitchen skills while stuck at home these past few months - why not step up your game with a cooking class hosted by Chef Bill Beck of Beck's Cajun Cafe in Reading Terminal Market? This virtual cooking class will teach you to add a cajun spin on your holiday favorites like cranberry sauce and add a few new recipe ideas onto your roster.

    Go to the ballet:

    Kun-Yang Lin/Dancers at the Annenberg Center

     

    It's hard not to miss going to live shows, but virtual performances like this one by famed local dance troupe Kun-Yang Lin/Dancers, definitely help fill the gap and stretch the imagination of what's possible. Livestreamed from the Annenberg Center's stage, this original showcase will include works that "illustrate how isolation can provide opportunities to reflect, grow and evolve," and a special surprise world premiere.

    Go to a film festival:

    40th Gershman Philadelphia Jewish Film Festival

     

    Pivoting to virtual has not slowed down the 40th Anniversary of the Gershman Philadelphia Jewish Film Festival one bit! This year's festival will stream for two weeks and along with 30 Philadelphia premieres, will include a visual arts showcase, a panel on art and activism and a (free!) master class with Bojack Horseman showrunner Raphael Bob-Waksberg.
