Night life has been dead since lockdown, and for those who are out and about on a Friday, or Saturday night, it has probably been nothing short of an apocalypse for you! Sitting at home, weekend after weekend, has you wondering if there will ever be a party again? We will have to take matters into our own hands for entertainment, and throw down all by ourselves!
Break out in dance and and don’t forget the disco lights! It would not be a party without them. Get all done up like it’s a date night, and take turn the music up. You can have the time of your life with your family, or online with friends as you groove to the sounds of your favourite songs. There is a website called, “Karafun.com” that gives you a wide variety of karaoke music, from country to hip hop. They offer non-stop music for the true party people who love to take it to the dance floor! Karaoke has never been easier, or more accessible, and the best part is, you can take it anywhere it could be downloaded.

Of course, a party is not a party unless there is food! I have taken the liberty to find an amazing recipe for a buffalo chicken dip. They go great with chips or veggies! Either way, this dip will be the center of attention at the party you’ll be hosting from home.
