Couple Builds Mini Pub In Backyard And It's Total Goals

One of the most (relatively) devastating effects of Coronavirus has been the closing of all bars and pubs. Although this has been felt everywhere, the British public is understandably one of the most hard-hit nations when it comes to the loss of social drinking. Some are wallowing in their sadness and waiting for the pubs to reopen. But others are taking matters into their own hands and implementing drastic action to get their alcohol fix. One family in Wigan, U.K., hired Octavia Chic to construct a pub in their backyard so they wouldn't have to wait until the lockdown is over. The results are even better than you could imagine, and judging by the pictures Octavia Chic uploaded to their Facebook page (featured below), they're going to get many more orders just like that one!

People Have Started Taking The Bins Out In Their Ballgowns

For most of us, being in lockdown means spending weeks on end wearing in nothing but pajamas - aside from occasionally throwing on a semi-normal looking top if we have a zoom meeting. For most of us, it's great, thank you very much. But the situation we find ourselves in isn't stopping some people from dressing up in their finest attire, even if it is just to take out the trash. Put Your Bins Out In Your Ballgown is a Facebook page that is full of pictures of people who are 'celebrate our new situation by dredging the wardrobe and the dress-up box and wearing all the things you will not otherwise get to wear.' Their Twitter account is full of some of the most flamboyant of them all. Check out some of our favorites below.
