While social distancing is the antithesis of our usual M.O., we're tapping into our creative community for ways to make the most of this downtime. Learning new self care practices, mastering a new cocktail recipe and ditching the makeshift desk in favor of DJ dance parties are all on our agenda. Another thing we're doing is reflecting on our favorite events--send us a photo and snippet from your most memorable event so we can include in our upcoming compilations.
Now, without further ado, here's what's up for the weekend.
