Throughout the duration of the coronavirus pandemic, people have been forced to conduct their social lives online in order to help prevent the spread of the virus. Although society is cautiously beginning to open up again, virtual social events might have become a regular part of your daily routine and are set to stay for some time yet. Some people may prefer to continue exercising caution while socializing in public, you might have established an enjoyable routine of keeping in touch with remote family and friends, or you might have built up an online friendship group from all over the world during the pandemic. If this is the case, how can you spice up your online social life instead of falling back on the interminable Zoom quiz? Here are some fun online events that you can organize to connect with remote friends and family.

Chocolate tasting

Most people are well acquainted with the delicious treat that is chocolate; however, the world of chocolate extends well beyond the bars that you can get at your local grocery store. A virtual chocolate tasting event is perfect for you and your friends to learn more about and sample this indulgent treat. You will find out more about the different confectionary methods used for making different types of chocolate, as well as exercising your senses to identify different flavor notes. Chocolate tasting boxes are posted to all participants ahead of the event - just make sure that you resist eating them beforehand!

Virtual karaoke party

Enjoying a karaoke night with your friends is guaranteed to be a lot of fun and a huge mood booster. However, it is also possible to host a karaoke party online and you might even find that you prefer doing it this way as it allows you to sing exactly the songs that you want rather than sticking to what is offered by the DJ. Use a social video website like Watch2Gether to enable you to sync YouTube music videos with lyrics and your Zoom presentation. Alternatively, you can simply share your screen with the other participants so that everyone has a chance to sing along to the song that is currently being performed.

Comedy night

A night out at your local comedy club is a great opportunity to catch up with friends and have your funny bone tickled by great comedians. Fortunately, it is possible to arrange virtual comedy nights, and with theatres being cautious to fully reopen following the pandemic, many comedians have honed their online stand-up routine. If you have connections to the world of comedy, you could arrange to host an online comedy night featuring sets from several different comedians. This would work particularly well if you are planning on monetizing the event as a charity fundraiser. However, you could also keep it cozy and intimate and invite your friends to participate in flexing their improv skills in a warm and supportive atmosphere.
