We all know the feeling - it’s a Friday night, and you’re exhausted from a long work week. Your friends are begging you to go out and have a drink or two to take the edge off. But you know that a few drinks can easily turn into a night of partying that will leave you feeling hungover the next day.
The peer pressure of partying and the allure of alcohol can sometimes cloud our best judgment.
However, there are plenty of fun activities to choose from instead of partying. From a cozy at-home movie night to a lively sporting event, there are so many sober activities to explore. These activities are a great chance to catch up with friends or family, make new connections, or spend quality time with yourself!
ENJOY A MOVIE NIGHT
Who doesn’t love a good movie night? Visit a traditional movie theater or a drive-in for an alcohol-free date night. Check out your local showings to see what’s playing!
If nothing at the movie theater interests you, consider hosting a movie night at home. Hosting a movie night lets you personalize the watching experience for you and your party. Choose a theme, serve delicious snacks and non-alcoholic drinks, and decorate the space to amplify the experience for your guests. Whether you’re watching a spooky thriller or a feel-good romantic comedy, a movie night is a great way to hang out without involving alcohol.
LEVEL UP YOUR FUN WITH A GAME NIGHT
What’s your favorite game? Invite your friends and family to bring their favorite games and host a game night. Whether you choose classic board games, fun adult card games, or exciting video games, there are countless options so no two game nights will ever be the same!
Game nights allow you to test your strategy, skills, and wit in a friendly competition. Pair up participants to create teams to compete against each other in multiple games. Great team pairings strengthen relationships and build camaraderie, especially if not all of your guests know each other closely.
Make your game night stand out with unique prizes, custom rules, and a variety of games. Lots of laughs and unforgettable moments will mark your evening.
ATTEND A SPORTING EVENT
What team are you rooting for? Sporting events are always a great time. Whether you’re an avid sports fan or just want to enjoy the lively environment, sporting events are a great activity. Watch the game, snack on some stadium food, people-watch, and spend quality time with your favorite people.
Being a fan of a team makes you a part of a culture bigger than yourself. When the team wins, you feel a sense of pride. Make new friends based on your team affiliation.
Many cities have their own local sports teams, making it convenient and accessible to attend sporting events near you. From football to soccer, baseball to hockey, research sporting events to find the perfect outing for you.
HOST A DINNER PARTY
Society often perceives alcohol as a means to socialize and connect with others. Those choosing a sober lifestyle sometimes worry that by not drinking alcohol, they are limiting their social interactions. But is alcohol the only thing that brings people together? NO! Food is a great way to connect with people.
If you enjoy cooking, consider hosting a dinner party. Dinner parties are the perfect excuse to try new recipes or prepare some of your favorite dishes. From fancy appetizers to charcuterie boards, there are endless possibilities for your dinner party.
If cooking isn’t your thing, a potluck is a great way to bring your guests together! Every guest will have a role in the dinner by bringing a unique dish that represents them. This means less cooking for you and more time to enjoy your company! Add to the fun by choosing a potluck theme, such as finger foods or casseroles.
Non-alcoholic cocktails are a great addition to your menu, especially when you use Floral Beverages. From Shirley Hemple to Bloody Mary Jane, our cocktail library provides endless inspiration for your next dinner party.
EXPERIENCE A LIVE CONCERT
Do you listen to country or rap? Are you into local, unknown artists, or do you prefer celebrity pop stars? Music is a massive driver of bringing people together. Attend a concert with your friends who share similar musical tastes, or attend solo and meet people who love the same artist as you!
Musicians go on tour all the time. Whether you live in a big city or a small town, you can easily find incredible music wherever you are.
While some concert-goers prefer to consume alcohol at the event, there is a rise in sober music events and festivals to support those who choose a sober lifestyle. Those who still crave a buzz should try Floral Beverages THC-infused seltzers.
Discover new artists, vibe with other music lovers, and have the time of your life by attending a live concert.
HAVE A SELF-CARE NIGHT
When was the last time you pampered yourself? Something that we all deserve, but often neglect, is self-care. Have a self-care night to refresh and recharge at the end of a long week.
Self-care looks different for everyone, so it is crucial to understand your mind and body. Ask yourself, what do you need to feel better?
Some ideas for your self-care night include:
- Take a bubble bath
- Start a journal
- Give yourself a massage
- Read a book
- Practice yoga
- Create art
- Watch an episode of your comfort show
CHECK OUT A COMEDY CLUB
Comedy clubs are one of the most underrated forms of entertainment. Who doesn’t love to laugh? After a long week, a comedy show can provide relief, laughter, and fun for you and your friends.
If we’re being honest, we all tend to think that our friend group is the funniest. Host an at-home comedy club show where your guests are in the spotlight. Deliver great inside jokes that only your friend group will understand.
