At this point in 2020, the novelty of catching up with friends, family and co-workers through video chat has definitely worn off. We’re tired of trying to spice up our “Zoomunions” with games, book clubs and karaoke. (We’ve tried it all at this point.)
But here’s a fun idea with the holidays fast-approaching: Craft a cocktail, cook a meal or decorate cookies virtually. Even better? Get the ingredients and tools you need delivered right to your door, and let a well-known chef hop on the video call and walk you all through the process step by step — live!
Nope. This isn’t just another meal kit situation. HUNGRY, an Arlington-based catering company that’s backed by celebrities like Jay-Z and Usher, is offering virtual DIY Xperiences, and they’re a creative way to spend virtual time with your friends, family and co-workers this holiday season. (Or they could make the perfect gift!)
Here’s how it works: Check out all of HUNGRY’s Virtual Xperiences. These include holiday cookie decorating and boozy hot cocoa (which includes making homemade whipped cream), homemade butternut squash ravioli making and cozy cocktail mixing. There are dozens of options.
Next, you’ll schedule your experience. When the day arrives, each participant (no matter where they live in the U.S.) gets all the fresh ingredients and tools they need delivered to their doorsteps.
Then, at your scheduled time, a celebrity chef or mixologist will lead your hour-long live virtual experience, walking you through the step-by-step process of decorating cookies with royal icing, mixing up some boozy hot cocoa or even brining a turkey.
And you’ll probably recognize a few of the chefs who’ve made appearances on The Oprah Winfrey Show and The Food Network.
Schedule your virtual Xperience today — so you don’t have to sit through another game of Zoom charades.

Our local therapy practice is delighted to welcome Stacey Cali, Resident in Counseling, who has openings now for new clients. Stacey specializes in therapy for women, couples, teens and families. A graduate of George Mason University’s Clinical Mental Health Counseling Masters Program, Stacey is also passionate about working with people with addiction.
Stacey’s approach: “Therapy’s a powerful combination of reflection, support and action. You’ll find sessions are filled with empowerment, compassion, goal setting and a metaphorical shovel to dig deep to find the root of your difficulties and how to move past them.”
Adds Stacey, “As a therapist who works with women, teens, couples and families, I use a personalized style of counseling, tailored to you as an individual. You’re the expert in your life, I’m just here to guide you towards transformation and healing.”
Stacey grew up in the area and decided to stay here, “since it’s close to beaches, mountains, and cities.” “In my spare time you can find me doing yoga, hiking, or gardening. I also love lounging and streaming shows or movies. I enjoy trying diverse restaurants and trying new food, my favorites now are sushi & Mexican.”
