Facebook groups centered around drinking might not sound like the most important thing during the coronavirus pandemic, but its doing more for the community than you might think.
This week I reported on two Facebook groups that started talking about drinking. The first about wine and the second was started by a bartender giving out recipes.
But both of these groups have grown to create a community, and decrease the feeling of loneliness that is so prevalent right now.
The first story talks about the feel good aspect of paying it forward, while also finding a new way to meet neighbors you never would’ve realized you had.

The second story is just about finding people during the pandemic that can help create a little bit of joy in your life, help you laugh and take your mind off all the craziness for a bit.
