GNI (Girls Night In, obv)

If you're staying in, here's your guide to the perfect high-key, low-key evening.

01

305 Fitness (at-home)

01

During 2020, boutique dance fitness studio, 305 Fitness took the party online, offering free YouTube workouts. If you've got energy to burn, want to let your freak flag fly, or honestly just miss hitting the clubs, look no further.

Create an At-Home Wine Tasting

Create an At-Home Wine Tasting

Lot's of people think they need to leave wine tastings to the professionals, but the truth is you can conduct one of your very own, not only easily, but affordably.

Decide how you want to theme the evening (e.g., one varietal at a range of costs, one cost and a range of varietals, one specific region, or the ever-popular, whatever is already in your home). Bag them up so you can't see what your tasting and take turns writing down what notes you smell and taste, how and where it hits your palate, and general commentary. Et voila, you've conducted your own wine tasting. Vivant has a variety of kits and is a great starting place, but really you can do this with whatever bottles you fancy.

03

The Egg Suite Brownie Delivery

The Egg Suite Brownie Delivery

One look at The Egg Suite's Instagram account is a dangerous one. Between their nutella-filled brownies and Basque-style burnt cheesecakes, we guarantee you won't leave the page without placing an order, which you can millennially place via DM.

04

Truth or Dab

04

You know Truth or Dare, but do you know Truth or... Dab? Answer the card you're asked-- you know light things like revealing truth bombs and embarrassing stories-- or, eat a spoonful of Hot Ones hot sauce. The choice is yours.

05

Speedy Romeo

Speedy Romeo

Not-so-traditional pizza pies. Pro Tip: Be sure to leave some room for the olive oil cake (because, yes, cake with an olive oil base is EPIC).

06

How To Make Banana Bread with Kitchn

How To Make Banana Bread with Kitchn

If you're too tired to go out and your bananas are turning faster than you can eat them, fret not; make banana bread. It’s a great way to save the produce you’re buying, and this recipe is especially forgiving if you need to make any substitutions for other ingredients. Also, feel free to throw in some nuts or chocolate to jazz it up.

07

Quiplash

07

Grab a computer, phone, and your top comedy chops for a game of Quiplash. Direct prompts will have you duking it out with your opponents to see who can come up with the wittiest, most liked answer. This is a great way to prove you are the funniest couple of all your couple friends once and for all. (I mean we always knew it, but you know it, make it official...)

08

Levain Bakery

Levain Bakery

If you're a lick-the-batter, eat-raw-dough kinda person, Levain is everything you crave (but baked). 🍪👅

09

Ouija Board

Ouija Board

This one is pretty scary TBH, but if you can stomach the risk of being forever cursed by bad spirits, we really recommend conjuring your love over the Ouija Board. Ask it yes or no questions or seek a deeper response from a greater source. But for real, be careful and like, maybe sage the place before and after?

10

Lucky Vegetarian

10

Located underneath a Buddhist temple in Sunset Park, the cuisine here makes the most of convincingly delicious mock meat and seafood, with dishes ranging from signature clay pots to luxe main courses, such as stir-fried veg duck, braised pork, Peking style spare ribs, and stir-fried lotus with spicy sauce.
