Dear friends,


The Coronavirus has turned drinks at our favorite bar into drinks in our couch, but that doesn't mean we have to sip our quarantinis alone! Belgian Mondays is teaming up with BelCham to put "social" back in "social distancing" and is organizing the first ever VIRTUAL MONDAYS on May 4 at 6PM ET.


Register here for the happiest virtual hour: https://bit.ly/2KveJ3L.

Once you do, you will receive a calendar invite with a ZOOM link!


How to get ready? Hide your piles of laundry. Find your kids a movie to watch. Put down the disinfecting wipes. Forget about the fact that the world is a dramatically different place today and let coffee time transition seamlessly into cocktail time with your Belgian friends in the US.


This wouldn't be a true happy hour without a delicious drink or snack (that would make it just another meeting). Consider supporting our local bars and restaurants by purchasing their drinks, food, and gift certificates. Here's some inspiration:


BXL: Get your favorite Belgian dish delivered to your doorstep.

MOJO: Online shop with authentic Belgian comfort food, chocolate mousses and gift cards.

BE CHOCOLAT: Next to online ordering, BE Chocolat is also available on UberEats for people close to Fairfield, CT.

LE BOTANISTE: Buy a gift card or order via Seamless or directly here

RLW/DEAR IRVING: Donate to the Dear Raines Relief Fund to support the best cocktail bar staff in town.

WAFELS & DINGES: Free shipping nationwide US; For each box you buy, you can choose to donate one for medical staff.

(Would you like to be included in this list? Send an email to info@belcham.org)



We hope to see you all!


Stay healthy!
