YOU’RE ALL SET!

THE DAY BEFORE YOUR EXPERIENCE WE’LL SEND THE EVENT LINK TO YOUR INBOX. In the meantime, CHECK OUT OUR VIRTUAL ETIQUETTE TIPs or bar games.  

(Yeah, we’d choose the bar games too.)

VIRTUAL ETIQUETTE

Prepare your spaceMake sure you have a strong internet connection with little background noise if possible

Mute yourself when not speakingThis will eliminate background noise (like cocktail shaking!) that makes it difficult for others to hear the speaker.

Be sure to come preparedCome with ingredients and supplies ready! Set yourself up in the kitchen where you have ample counter space and access to a sink.

Please come 10 minutes earlyThis way we can get to know each other and start right on time!

BAR GAMES

Amplify your experience with these extracurricular activities!

Head to the bar! Transport yourself to Bar Avital with this downloadable Zoom background.

Make a pregame temperance cocktail – A light, non-alcoholic refreshment to get the juices flowing before your virtual experience.

Or practice these seriously cool bar tricks!
