Say "Cheers!" to the Long Weekend

Urvashi Deshpande on July 19, 2021
It truly is one of the best feelings in the world when you have that extra day that you can do anything you want. Nowadays we can't visit our dream country because of travel restrictions. We also don't want to blow our budget. That doesn't mean there aren't some fun things to do on a long weekend. You couldn't go the whole 4-5 days without having fun. 
You're most likely off from work, so it's understandable if you'd rather use that time to do creative things. You can't go wrong and do the regular boring stuff. So, here are some interesting activities you can try and have fun with.
Host A Themed Movie Night
Having a movie night is always fun, but you can spice it up with a specific theme. Maybe it's your favorite movie or sitcom from the '90s. Whatever it may be, your friends can all get in on the theme by dressing up, bringing snacks. And you just need to take care of decorations and drinks. Check out some best ideas for an epic movie night or sports night at home.
Decorate your Home Bar
Be productive and set up your home bar on this long weekend. It’s a great way to clear out any unused product, declutter your bar area and organize items into specific sections. You can also add new essentials to your home bar. You’ll feel instantaneously better and have more space in your home bar as a result. Plus, you can post some inspiring photos of your endeavors.
If you don't have a home bar yet and are planning to set up a new one, then there are a few important things you need to keep in mind. For this, check out Top Tips From Bartenders For Setting Up Your Home Bar.
Enjoy Your “Me Time”
When you see yourself trapped in work, work, and work, it’s high time to give yourself a small treat. Go shopping or cook something good for yourself. Watching your favorite movie with a soothing glass of wine is also a calm and composed way to enjoy your long weekend. When we say treat yourself, it does not mean monetary always, you can just simply make Refreshing Summer Mocktails and enjoy it in your own company. 
Play Drinking Games
It's summer in UAE and you definitely don't want to play outdoor games. So plan a game night. It will always be fun to plan with a big crew of friends. It's an amazing excuse to get together and have fun. 
Check out some interesting drinking games. You can play these games with your friends or family and enjoy your long weekend. If you don't know how to plan a Game Night then check our blog How To Plan A Cocktails And Games Night In for exciting ideas.
Host a Virtual Party
Thanks to technology, we can virtually video call our loved ones, so try arranging a video date night with your best pals or family via Google Meet, Hangouts, Facebook Messenger, Zoom, or Skype. 
For those that are having their birthday in quarantine, this is a great way to share a glass of wine through the screen with close friends and celebrate.
Have A Cozy Girls' Night In
Invite your girlfriends over for a night in. Catch up on everything that's going on in your lives, surprise your girlfriends with exciting cocktails and enjoy it together. Just being around your favorite people is fun enough, and you don't need anything else to have an incredible time.
Start Growing a Herbal Garden
If you are not a people's person then spend time with plants. If you have enough space in your backyard or balcony, start a vegetable patch or herb garden. Gardening is also a calorie-burning activity. And you can always make perfect cocktails by using homegrown herbs. 
We're grateful for long weekends, and we hope you have the most epic one ever.
Stay Safe, Stay Cheerful!
