Virtual tastings are officially a thing and it's no wonder, what with everyone sitting around eating all day. Give your comfort cravings some purpose and order up at-home wine and chocolate tastings from the likes of Bar Crenn and Dandelion.
Plus, mix up Bar Agricole's rye gin Old Fashioned, or celebrate 4/20 with cannabis specials. Then, stoke your creativity with online artist talks and workshops or maximize your couch lock with various YouTube vids (did you catch Billie Joe Armstrong on Fallon this week?).
Have a good one.
