Virtual movie night

With the help of Chrome extension Scener, you can make movie night happen again while staying socially distanced. With both camera and microphone enabled, you can be together again through a screen. Scener works with Netflix, Disney Plus, YouTube, Hulu, Prime Video and more! You can host your own private room, or even join public theaters. Bring some snacks and sit down to watch a movie of your choice with a loved one or a big group of friends!


Valentine’s Day Baking

Looking for ways to make your Valentine’s Day a little sweeter? Try out a baking recipe! This easy and gooey one-minute red velvet mug cake is guaranteed to satisfy your sweet tooth. 


Red Velvet Mug Cake 



You’ll need: 6 tablespoons of all-purpose flour, 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar, 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar, 1 tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder, ¼ tablespoon of baking powder, ⅛ tablespoon of kosher salt, ⅓ cup of milk, 2 tablespoons of melted butter, 2 tablespoons of pure vanilla extract, 1 tablespoon of red food coloring, 3 tablespoons of confectioners’ sugar, and lastly, 1 tablespoon of room temperature cream cheese.
