We had one and not one person was actually drinking. Just awkwardly barely chatted for 45 min before someone had to leave for dinner. Then EVERYONE immediately clicked out lol

If you are on a team trying to finish a lot of deliverables, because the project is going to shut down. I bet it is the one who doesn’t do any work that is recommending a “fun” virtual happy hour. Because after staring at my monitor for 12 hours straight. I really want to stare at my monitor during a virtual happy hour....

It is just okay - one person can talk at a time usually. Can’t have too many people talking over each other otherwise you have no idea what’s being said. I miss the element of side convos - with 20 people on a zoom call you have to sort of keep to one large subject “what’s everyone watching on Netflix?” Or “anyone have a kitchen adventure ?” It’s like meh. Just okay. We did a zoom trivia night and that was fun actually . I think it might be better to try and have an activity rather then just an forum of people talking one at a time about one thing at a time .

Honestly I think it’s a way for some people to drink without feeling bad about drinking alone 😒 on a random Wednesday night
