    Last night, a few of my friends got together for a virtual happy hour. It was fun. And, no designated driver was needed.

    So I was thinking. We have family all over, from Colorado to Texas to the Carolinas and up and down Florida.

    Since we are all stuck at home, I thought there must be some kind of virtual games we can play together while FaceTiming. Maybe even drinking games as my nephew and nieces are all in their 20s (and my kids are 18 and 20).

    Any suggestions? Anyone else trying to virtually hang out?

    I saw something about a virtual movie watching party on Netflix I think. You all watch at the same time and they have some app where you can chat/comment with each other.

    Zoom is an online platform where you can video chat with multiple people. We use it in the virtual school world but it has many applications. The free version limits your hangout to 40 minutes but the paid version is unlimited.

    We’re using Microsoft Teams at work. FaceTime works as well.

    How 'bout spin-the-bottle? You could reconnect with some old flames and make things interesting! :devil:

    It's a Chrome Extention called Netflix Party. It allows you to chat while watching the movie.

    That's what my synagogue is using for our services.

    I'm about to join a virtual aikido weapons class via FB Live.
