In many ways, weekends spent congregating at bars feel like a distant memory. But things have begun to return to normal as those social activities once again become feasible.
On that note, The Rec Room has officially reopened its doors to amusement-seekers looking to reunite with friends over a game of shuffleboard, ping pong, or Mario Kart (to name just a few).
It’s hard to imagine a better way to relieve the stress of the past few months than joining friends for an evening of fun and games enjoyed in between sips of cold beer and bites of delicious grub.
For those concerned about health and sanitization while out and about, you can rest assured that safety measures have been put in place to create a worry-free atmosphere. In order to keep guests safe, the venue is limiting capacity to ensure groups can physically distance from one another.
Additional measures include the spacing out and regular sanitization of games, as well as the ability to book private gaming areas. Hand sanitizer and wipes will also be made frequently available throughout the space for personal use.
If you’re not feeling quite ready to make an in-person appearance, don’t fret. You can bring The Rec Room vibes straight to your living room by ordering via SkipTheDishes. Their All Star Combo comes with enough food to feed an army and includes a three-cheese artichoke dip, eight jumbo chicken wings, poutine, two bags of popcorn, and a giant pretzel for good measure — all for $25.
DIY nacho, pizza, and BBQ kits mean you can emulate your favourite pub fare from the comfort of home. Believe it or not, you can also add board games, like Jenga and Twister, to your order for maximum effect.
Looking to make up for a quarantine birthday spent in solitude? Get a do-over with 50% off group bookings at The Rec Room for missed milestones. This can include anniversaries, graduations, and religious celebrations, too. Note, bookings are subject to availability and must take place before September 30 of this year.
Exclusive game rentals for you and your friends is an option when you book a Private Suite. The package includes a couple of games and your usual food and drink needs enjoyed from the comfort of your own private or semi-private area.
Prefer to have the entire venue to yourself after-hours for unlimited gaming and private access? Groups and organizations can avail themselves of the Insider Access Package, which includes venue rental, games, and event staff.
Whether you’re still feeling like a homebody or are ready to get out in the world, making up for lost time by reuniting with loved ones over food and games is always a good idea.
