Virtual Celebrations for New Year's Eve 2020 - 2021


There's no two ways about it - New Year's Eve this year will be very, very different for so many of us - but who's to say that has to stop you from sharing the celebrations of ringing in a New Year!

There are many options for virtual get togethers - whether it's sharing the cooking and eating experience with a chosen few friends and family; driving around for a last look at neighbourhood Christmas lights and ordering some delicious take out to finish the evening off; pushing the couch out of the way and streaming an amazing concert or party right into your home and having a virtual dance party; or a quiet evening at home with your household... 

Here are some great ideas we've found to join in a virtual party/celebration - 


The Drake - It Was All a Dream

With pick up menus of meals, snacks and morning after brunch being offered by the chefs at the Drake and NYE beverage kits available, combined with free DJ performances being streamed from the Drake Underground, this is sure to be one amazing party - make a date with your crew and you can all be dancing together again!
