I recently took part in a family activity that I feel compelled to share. And if you’re feeling that anxious-restless kind of anxiety, you should stick around. When my mom first told me about this “idea” I thought she had lost it. I quickly realized that she was right and I was wrong (sad, that’s how it always goes).
Anyway, she decided that our family was going to do a “room” crawl. A room crawl is basically the social distancing version of a bar crawl. She went above and beyond and set up our basement, dining room and living room into three different “bars”. All rooms had different drinks, music, and snacks.
How to Properly Room Crawl
**If you have children or anyone underage in your house, you can just make an alcohol-free version of the drinks you choose**
Now obviously you can put together whatever combination of food, music, and drinks that you want, but I’m going to give you examples from what my family did for some initial inspiration.
- Room 1:
- Food: homemade nachos and potato wedges
- Music: The Weeknd’s newest album (again, you can choose ANY music–he’s just my favorite, so don’t come for me)
- Drink: Vodka martini
- Room 2:
- Food: Charcuterie board with all different kinds of cheese, fruit, and crackers
- Music: “Mood Booster” Spotify playlist
- Drink: Long Island iced tea
- Room 3:
- Food: Brownies
- Music: A random oldies Spotify playlist
- Drink: Champagne
I really hope at least someone tries this because it turned out to be so much fun. It was also a nice way to get the family together, focus on something other than these stressful times, and was a small taste of our old “normal”.
If you want to add some more people to the party, Zoom or Facetime your friends!
