Best resources in Oakland, CA, to throw a fabulous virtual New Years’ Eve Party!

With New Year’s Eve just around the corner, many party-goers are trying to plan out how they will ring in the new year and still keep the party safe and festive. 

With the ongoing pandemic, and many cities and states mandating that party-goers forego the usual gathering in groups to celebrate the festivities, an alternate method of celebrating the ball drop appears to be in order this year—virtual celebrations.

With this mindset, we have sought out some of the best sources in Oakland, CA, for drinks and food that will make ringing in the New Year less of a chore, and more of a blast!

With a little creativity and the use of the internet, you can have your food and drinks delivered right to you, or those party guests from out of town.
