The 10 Best Alcohol Delivery Services

Hosting a party and run out of drinks? Don’t feel like carrying heavy bottles on the subway (or in general)?

Below you’ll find a list of T&C’s favorite alcohol delivery services.

 

Livestream This: CGI and 3D Arts Festival QUARANTIN3D

Just as musicians have been forced to postpone and cancel gigs, 3D/CGI artists are currently seeing opportunities rapidly disappear as steady streams of income like designing marketing campaigns and tour visuals dry up. For the artists participating, QUARANTIN3D Fest is a way to still showcase their work outside of an Instagram feed.

Also for those looking to pick up a new skill while they stay home for the time being, many of the artists including Boldtron’s PZZA Studio will be hosting online classes for those looking to get into making 3D art as well as workshops for those already in the field looking to sharpen their craft.

When you Needed it Most. . .ESPN8: The Ocho Returns on ESPN2, Sunday, March 22

The line-up includes:

Stupid Robot Fighting League: Created in New Zealand by John Espin (Yes, that is his actual name.), Stupid Robot Fighting is a rather unique form of fighting that pits two life-sized hanging puppets controlled by an operator sitting behind each Stupid Robot.

2019 Jelle’s Marble Runs: Races in which both participants and spectators are marbles.

Cherry Pit Spitting: The 46th Annual Cherry Pit-Spitting Competition is held each year in Eau Claire, Mich., with one goal for competitors—to spit the farthest cherry pit.

Sign Spinning: The 12th Annual World Sign Spinning Championship, held in Las Vegas, brought together AArrow Sign Spinners from more than 50 cities and a dozen countries to asses style, execution, and technical sign spinning ability.

2007 World Sport Stacking Championships: Sport stacking can be an individual or team sport where participants stack specially designed cups in predetermined sequences as fast as possible.

 

We suspect you’ll need… something after reading that, so here’s Lin-Manuel Miranda singing “Dear Theodosia” from Hamilton on last night’s locked-down Fallon Tonight. Don’t worry, we cued it up to the song if you don’t want to have to deal with Jimmy Fallon, who is clearly trying to figure out what the hell he’s doing (which we can’t really rag on him for, since we’re all trying to figure out the same thing).

 

 

So? How are we all doing?
