· Emma Cooke · Food and Drink

Staying in is the new going out.

Northern Monk Hop City

With everything from virtual pub quizzes to online beer tastings on the cards, you can fill your calendar with things to look forward to.

These lockdown-friendly nights out will help you make the most of your evenings in. Not only are they a great way to engage with others online, but they also give you something to look forward to. Whether you fancy getting boozy during a game of bonkers bingo or wracking your brains with a pub quiz, a night in has never been so much fun.

Bongo’s Bingo

Bongo's Bingo

You can enjoy Jonny Bongo’s bonkers antics from home, because he’s streaming his legendary bingo sessions live on Twitch. It’s free to play – all you need is a pen, paper and a UK registered phone number, which is used to generate your bingo numbers. You can expect the same Bongo’s Bingo mayhem, including raunchy backing dancers, ridiculous prizes and throwback tunes. They last a good couple of hours too, so grab a drink and make a night of it.

Bongo’s Bingo streams live at 8pm on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays Twitch.

Beer Tasting

Craft beer fiends, this one’s for you. The folk at Northern Monk are running weekly beer tasting sessions on Instagram Live. All you need to do is tune in and their brewers will talk you through one of the brewery’s beers. You’ll get a heads up on which beer it is, so you can get your can ready. The tasting sessions kick off at 7pm every Saturday night and will end with a Q&A session, where you can ask anything you want about the beer and the brewery.
