To entertain, or not to entertain

It's a week to Thanksgiving. India and its diaspora just celebrated Diwali. The holiday season is upon us, and one thing is clear: the high season for bringing people together at the table is entering unknown territory.

Can lighting Hanukkah candles over Zoom still bring joy? Can that Christmas spread for six pare down to a dinner for one? 

Clearly, 2020 holiday parties will look nothing like they used to. This doesn't mean they won't happen. Humans—being humans—will find a way to celebrate safely during the prolonged pandemic, not despite it, but because of it.

Here's some help.

Bespoke place settings make for a festive dinner even if it's just you.

Social Distance in a Supercar

You could take a road trip, yes, but that's about the journey, not the adrenaline. For letting off steam, zooming around a track remains one of the few socially distanced things drivers can do to blow off steam. And for that, there's a new supercar for you: Ferrari, Bugatti, Porsche, and, of course, Lamborghini.

The 2021 Huracán EVO RWD represents the Goldilocks of Huracáns. It's a great option for the buyer who wants to drive in comfort to a racetrack, challenge friends to a personal best lap time, then drive home—still at ease—in the same car.

The model's V10, 602-horsepower engine combined with rear-wheel-drive makes for a thrill-inducing rocket of a ride. Prices start at $208,571, or drop another $20K and the EVO RWD Spyder can do it all the same, but topless.
