Week three and life in quarantine is either starting to feel like the new normal or the ultimate test of our will power. We’re just taking it day by day… martini by martini….

And if that’s not enough, we’re here with the weekly Round Up to give you a little extra content for your weekend and a few things worth celebrating. 

LISTEN

Are you still processing what’s happening in the world? Well, lucky for us, “Still Processing,” the podcast, is back and teaming up with The New York Times to talk about “routines, dreams, and what’s on our screens.”

The infamous Brené Brown gave us all a pep talk on her podcast, Unlocking Us, this week. She broke down the myth of comparative suffering and let us forgive ourselves for the collective weary we are all experiencing. 

CELEBRATE

We can’t agree more with Alison Roman’s sentiment, “celebrating literally anything feels essential right now.” We devoured her Passover recipes and plan to pair them with our Winter Blues Look to celebrate Passover next week with our quaranteam! 

Speaking of celebrate… we are celebrating the weekend with our inaugural virtual dance party, The Set, this Saturday, April 6th! Tune in to our Instagram at 8pm EST to hear Claire Marie kick it up a notch and kick off your shoes to dance along to her soul infused set. 

READ

You know we love to #setthetable and with this extra time on our hands we’re diving into Danny Meyer’s phenomenal book, Setting The Table, because hospitality and business are two of our favorite things.

We’re inspired by this article about Greg Baxter of Olmstead who has turned his restaurant into a food bank for furloughed restaurant workers! 

WATCH

…an opera! Because why the hell not?! The Met is streaming a new opera every night for free! Please pass the opera glasses. 

Movie night has evolved in a major way now that you can watch Netflix with friends. 

GIVE

We are championing ROAR this week, because hospitality workers are always there to take care of us, and now it’s our turn to take care of them.
