These days…just about anything goes. Wear your pajamas to work. Binge Tiger King in one sitting. Have date night on a Tuesday? Here are some ideas we came up with to connect with loved ones in Greenville + across the country during this time of social distancing.

Dish + Drink (Every good date night starts with good food)

🌮 Taco Tuesday: I mean, duh. Cantina 76, White Duck Taco, Tacozinni and Tipsy Taco are some local favorites offering tacos to go.

🍔 #StayInCookOutGVL: Show us what you got (cookin’ on the grill) and participate in our Instagram challenge in partnership with Lowes Foods.

🧀 Charcuterie Board: Grab everything you need from Swamp Rabbit Cafe to make the charcuterie board of your dreams. They also have Strawberry Frosé

🍝 Spaghetti and Meatballs: Have yourselves a real life Lady and the Tramp moment with a pasta dish from Jianna.

Virtual Activities (For couples, pals and families alike)

🎧 Throw a virtual silent disco dance party. Our GVLtoday Spotify playlist has some Carolina classics.

📚 Host a virtual book club with friends near and far. M. Judson Booksellers is doing curbside pickup or you can browse their store by appointment only.

🤳 Take a SkillPop Anywhere class together. A variety of $20, online classes are taught by various experts in cities across the southeast including, of course, Greenville.

🖼️ Visit The Columbia Museum of Art from the comfort of your own couch. Enjoy artists’ conversations, art talks and behind the scene museum activities.

IRL (In Real Life) Activities

🎨 Complete a “Clay to Go” pottery project from Hollowed Earth Pottery. Or pick up a “Twist at Home” kit from Painting with a Twist.

📷 Get dressed up and head outside to snap some pics during “golden hour.Or better yet, get local photographer Cameron Reynolds to shoot a Porch Portrait.” Any and all donations made for these socially distant photos will go to Mill Village Farms

🧁 The Chocolate Moose has cupcake decorating kits to satisfy your sweet tooth. Make sure you place your order a day in advance – they’re going quick.
