Woman Celebrates Her 23rd Birthday With A Pub Crawl Inside Her Own House

With the coronavirus pandemic meaning we're all currently on lockdown, many people have been forced to cancel their weddings, baby showers and even birthday parties.

But when one woman, Amy Morgan, was faced the depressing reality of calling off her birthday plans on Thursday, her family ensured she ended up with the next best thing.

Amy, 23, was meant to be going on a pub crawl in Dublin with all her friends - but when she realised it couldn't go ahead, her family decided to plan one in their own home instead.

In a bid to ensure Amy still had a good time, both her parents and sister Poppy turned every room in their bedroom house in Leeds, West Yorkshire, into makeshift boozers, inspired by bars and restaurants she loved IRL.

They didn't stop there, also turning their garden into a bar, and leading her around the house to experience each area one-by-one.

Determined to add as much ambience as possible, Amy's family stopped at nothing, playing blow up saxophones as Amy "entered" her first bar through the garden, and even putting her dad on the gate as a makeshift bouncer.

There, he checked her ID and gave her a wristband before leading her inside for a boozy bottomless brunch at 'Manahatta', in the living room.

It was then on to a 'Bar Fibre', for a courtyard party outside, before Amy was escorted to 'Dirty Martini' where Amy's dad served up lockdown cocktails, including a Pornstar Quarantine, Pina Corona and Long Isolation Iced Tea.

LOL.

To add to the experience, nightclub flyers were pinned up around the house, and light boxes had been used to advertise the name of each bar.

Plus, Amy's mum even used her camera phone and Snapchat filters to create her own photo booth in the family kitchen, to commemorate the special occasion.

Amy's night finished with cheesy dance classics at 'Pop World' - with her legendary dad on the decks, of course - before the birthday girl enjoyed a virtual party and quiz with her friends.

Looking back on the special day, bank worker Amy said: "I might have had a lockdown birthday, but my family made it one of the best birthdays I've ever had. It's one I definitely won't forget.

"I always do a bottomless brunch for my birthday and see where the afternoon day-drinking takes us, usually Dirty Martini and Fibre 2-4-1.

"My mum suggested the Leeds bar crawl and we all helped to create it.

"At some points I actually felt like I was out in Leeds with my family, they had done such a good job."

After seeing Amy's night, we might throw our next party at home tbh. We wonder whether her parents fancy being party planners...
