As we’ve officially been sent into a shelter-in-place, we’ve been finding creative Things to Do in Dallas to stay entertained and active.
With all recent and upcoming events being canceled, we’ve put a little spin on our typical Weekend Guide and these days, it’s looking a lot more like a #StuffToDoAtHome Guide!
We’re personally not new to the whole work from home thing, but we definitely needed some guidance on the stay at home thing, so we’ve rounded up the ways we’re coping. Check them out below!

What to Play at Home
The Sims | 💻📱🕹
Literally so many options and even though we can’t necessarily live our best non-quarantined lives because outside is temporarily closed, doesn’t mean we can live our best virtual one.
Animal Crossing | 💻🕹
We’ve been seeing this everywhere! Originally a game for Nintendo Switch, we saw they also offer a Digital Version for you to become addicted to.
If you don’t own these, online retailers are still shipping…warning, there may be delays.
Parties to Go to at Home
DJ’s from all around the world have been LIVE streaming via IG and Facebook and bringing the party straight to our living rooms. Here’s a couple noteworthy to follow:
All the celebs have been showing up in his live-streams and his old school new school mixes have everyone and their mom on Instagram LIVE!
DJ Sober is one of DFW’s hottest DJs. He sets the vibes IRL and virtually.
