Hattiesburg, MS

At-home activities for entertainment are an increasing trend due to the pandemic. Since limited options exist for entertainment in a public setting, many people turn to fun at-home activities to brighten the mood. Although drinking a glass of wine on your front porch or back deck may be relaxing, other activities can have the same effect. So, to help you generate some ideas, Lincoln Road Package Store is sharing some fun at-home activities to pair with wine. Then, when you finish reading, visit our location at 2800 Lincoln Road, Suite A, in Hattiesburg, MS, to stock up on bottles of wine and other favorite adult beverages.

Backyard Picnic

You don’t have to be in a park to enjoy a good picnic amid a quaint setting. Your backyard could be the perfect place to spread a blanket on the grass, kick off your shoes, and enjoy a nice glass of wine with some fruit and cheese. A backyard picnic is the perfect “mini” get away from the news, work, and stress of pandemic life. It can also provide a moment of peace in a distraction-filled world. Using your backyard as your picnic area can help you practice social distancing and reduce your risk of getting in trouble as the law prohibits alcohol in most public parks. So, invite a special friend over for some relaxing adult conversation paired with your favorite wine and snacks at your backyard picnic.

Paint and Wine

Paint and wine events were rising in popularity pre-pandemic. These events teach you how to paint a picture while enjoying copious amounts of wine. If you love these events or find the activity interesting, you can paint alone or video chat with a friend to practice safe social distancing.

To prepare for your private paint and wine event, visit your local hobby store and purchase some canvasses and paint. Then, on your way home, come to Lincoln Road Package Store at 2800 Lincoln Road, Suite A, in Hattiesburg, MS, to purchase some of your favorite wine. Finally, decide what you want to paint and find a video to teach you how to do it. A tutorial that takes you from start to finish with your painting will seem like you hired a private instructor.

Blind Tasting

A blind tasting is our favorite idea and one we hope you consider for your next activity. The purpose of the blind tasting is to try new and different wines to expand your pallet and find some new favorite wines. If you continue to purchase the same brand or style of wine, you miss out on the experience of new aromas and flavors that could become a new favorite. By taking a chance, not only do you get to try something different, but you may also learn more about wine and enhance your appreciation for it.

The blind tasting works best when someone uninvolved chooses the types of wine to include. You could pick out two or three bottles on your own, wrap them in a brown paper bag to disguise them, and then try to mix them up where you have no idea which bottle is which. Or you could visit our location at 2800 Lincoln Road, Suite A, in Hattiesburg, MS, where one of our knowledgeable and helpful staff can help pick out different varieties of wine and wrap them in a paper bag before you can see them. Let us know how many bottles you want, what sort of wine you would like to include, and your budget, and our staff will choose quality wines. However, if the process is too overwhelming, you can ask us to “surprise you,” and we will select bottles that are our customer and staff favorites.
