Every Friday

Virtual Happy Hour Facebook Live Free  |  8 p.m. This week learn how to make blue curaçao cocktails. “Everyone would rather be at the beach right now anyway, so why not drink like you are!” the organizers say. Every week the folks from Chin Up go on Facebook Live to take you through a few drink recipes, answer any questions “and just hang out.” It may include guest bartenders. So, pull up a virtual barstool and party like it's March 13, the organizers say. It is a 21-plus event, so pay heed. Find the feed here. 

Rocktails featuring Roadie  Facebook Donations appreciated  |  6 p.m.  Headliners, one of Louisville’s most prized music venues, has created a livestream series of local musicians. This week, it’s the psych-rock band Roadie. There’s a GoFundMe campaign attached to the series that provides financial relief to the venue’s staff, so donate and help out.

Louisville Orthopaedic’s Virtual Race Weekend Wherever You Want Free  |  Any Time One of the few times that Gov. Andy says you should leave your house is when you’re going to exercise alone, e.g., going on a walk, run or bike ride. Why not make it a little competitive? Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic, along with other sponsors, is encouraging locals to get out and run or walk a 5K, half marathon or full marathon — especially if you’re one of those people whose race was canceled because of the pandemic. To enter, RSVP to the Facebook event and post to your page, tagging others whose races were shut down. The day you participate, make another post showing you ran or biked. Ten winners will be randomly selected to receive a prize package from the race sponsors and a $50 gift card to Ken Combs Running Store.
