Ugh, socializing! We missed you! Here’s what to do now that quarantine is over. Freedom is ringing, people! Hopefully soon, anyway. It’s no secret that we’re all looking forward to gathering together again, and once social distancing restrictions ease up, the sky is the limit. These spots are sure to be some of the most frequented ones once that happens.
Go to Mill Avenue

The 2020 season will start in July without fans, so long as the CDC allows it; but if games open up to the public, well, buy yourself some peanuts and cracker jacks. Even if sports aren’t your thing, Chase Field is sure to be electric.
Sitting on a patio eating pancakes and drinking mimosas is a luxury we all took for granted. Now, it’s an absolute must when we’re able to go to brunch again. Put on a cute outfit and enjoy a relaxing meal with friends.
Go to the Mall
Sure, curbside pickup is available, but walking around the mall sounds great, doesn’t it? Online shopping just isn’t the same as strolling through the mall with your Starbucks and forcing yourself to save money.
Get a Manicure
Ladies, please give your nail techs a hug. They deserve it and so do you. Treat yourself. ‘Nuff said.

Visit the Phoenix Zoo
Instead of monkeying around at home, do it at the zoo. A wholesome family activity that’s sure to lift everyone’s spirits even higher. Just remember to stay hydrated if you’re outside.
Whether you’re a golfer or not, it’s always amusing to try and beat a friend over good food and a drink or two. Get there early though, because there is sure to be a wait.

ASU Football Games
You don’t have to be a student to watch Sparky do push-ups every time the Devils make a touchdown. Phoenix is basically Sun Devil Country, so not only are games a good source of entertainment, but there’s a sense of unity that comes with them, and we could all use a little unity.
