We all know that Brown County is a great place for a girlfriend getaway. Shopping, outdoor adventure, cute cottages, wine, cocktails, live music…need we say more? Well we’re here to tell you that you still can enjoy Brown County with your best gal pals even while we’re all stuck at home. Call up the girls and get ready because here are some out-of-the-box ideas on how to have a little virtual Brown County fun!
Sip Some Wine 🍷
How do you stay sane when you’re a month into quarantine? Wine and gossip, of course! Do what you do best with your girls…chat it up over some drinks. It’s exactly what you’d do if you came for a visit, so you might as well do it at home too. Snag your favorite Brown County wine and get on a Zoom call with your girlfriends. You can order from Brown County Winery and Country Heritage Winery online or you may even be able to find them at your local grocery or liquor store. If you live nearby, all four of our winery tasting rooms are open for purchasing bottles.
Once you all have your wine, schedule a time to Zoom. Then, download one of our cool Brown County backgrounds to make it even more fun!
Surprise Your Girls with a Gift 🎁
Send your girls some love from Brown County with a surprise gift! Do your friends have a favorite Brown County shop? What about a favorite Brown County sweet treat? Buy it online and have it shipped to your best gal pal’s doorstep. Send some tasty fudge from the Nashville Fudge Kitchen, chocolate truffles from the Candy Emporium, a cute top from Mulberry Cottage, soaps and lotions from New Harmony Soap Company, loose leaf tea from Sweetea’s, a flavored olive oil from The Wild Olive…the possibilities are endless. Click here to see what Brown County shops have online stores. Then, get to ordering. After all, a little love goes a long way!
Host a Virtual Cooking Night 🥘
This one is a little more complex, but totally doable. Even though you and the girls can’t get together for a meal, it doesn’t mean that you can’t make one and dig in virtually. Pick out a recipe that you all will love. Once you have that, check out the Nashville Spice Company’s online store. You’re sure to find whatever spices and sauces your recipe calls for. Heck, you can even get free shipping right now using the promotional code FREESHIP. Once the ingredients arrive at each of your houses, set up a Zoom chat and get to cooking together…apart. Remember that Brown County wine you bought? Well, hopefully you bought more than one bottle. It will come in handy for this girls night too!
Do a Virtual Activity Together 🧘
Can’t go to a workout or craft class in person right now? Just do one virtually! This is a great way for you and the girls to do something together during these crazy times. Get your flow on with virtual yoga by Simply Fitness. Choose from 30 minute or hour-long classes offered every day of the week except Friday and Sunday. Reserve your spots online and find your Zen! There’s also a super cool 30-Day Online Guide to Outdoor Wellness program beginning in May. Get all the girls to sign up and spend a whole month working on your well-being together!
If your squad is more of the artsy type, check out The Clay Purl’s virtual Knit Night every Tuesday at 6:30 p.m.
Get Crafty with Some Cocktails 🍹
Have some fun with your friends learning how to create new craft cocktails! After all, when you’re going to acquire some new skills, the end result might as well be a delicious drink. Need recipes? Look no further than Indiana’s largest craft distillery, Hard Truth Distilling Co. Almost daily you’ll find a new recipe posted to either Hard Truth Hills or Hard Truth Distilling Co.’s Facebook pages. Pick one (or a few) to try out, round up the necessary ingredients, and hop on Zoom with your girls. Follow Hard Truth’s online tutorials for perfect results. All cocktails are best enjoyed immediately after creation!
See…you can still have fun with the gals even though you’re stuck at home! Think of it as a Brown County girlfriend getaway gone virtual!
