Let's be real: While we all love how convenient food deliveries can be, nothing beats the feeling of actually going to your favorite restaurant and ordering your go-to meal. After spending a lot of time at home this past year, you've probably been itching to go out with the hopes of satisfying your *intense* food cravings. (Same here, you guys!) And since the quarantine guidelines have been eased, the good news is you actually can dine outdoors—as long as you follow the proper safety protocols, of course. Don't forget to wear your mask, wash/sanitize your hands regularly, and practice social distancing!
