Summer may look and feel a little different this year, but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice activities that celebrate the season.

In fact, what might feel like limitations actually offer a chance to try something new. From learning how to prepare summertime delights to making the most of your patio, summer in quarantine just got a little more interesting.

Create Your Own Oyster Bar

Oysters are the official seafood of summer. While they’re typically enjoyed on the half shell and often at seaside restaurants, they can also be consumed at home in your apartment. With a little practice and a steady hand, shucking oysters can be learned and is a skill you’ll love to show off at future events. Don’t forget to pair your bivalves with lemon, mignonette, and a dollop of horseradish.

Utilize Your Patio

No matter how large or small your patio is, it can serve as your own private outdoor oasis during quarantine. For those with larger spaces, indulge in a grill and ample plants to turn it into a lush place to dine and relax. Space may be limited on smaller patios, but with the addition of an air mattress, a few pillows, and string lights, it can become a place to sleep under the stars.

Find a Drive-In Theater
