While we're not in quarantine anymore, normal birthday celebrations have largely become a thing of the past in a coronavirus-filled world. Although this isn't the worst for minor birthdays like 19, or 23, people with the monumental birthday of 21 are really missing out right now. As someone currently planning my 21st birthday, I thought I should share my favorite ideas, since I'll be letting most of them go to waste on my big day.
Go to a bar
Depending on your state's coronavirus restrictions, this may still be possible. However, in most places, they won't serve drinks past 10 p.m., or let you drink without buying food. So, just don't go out the night before you turn 21 and expect to be able to drink.
Go out to dinner
Although, this way, you can't take a shot the moment you turn 21, you'll still get to go out and drink for your 21st birthday, and get much better food than you would get at a bar.
Go out to brunch
Slightly earlier than going out to dinner, you get to get drunk early in the morning on your 21st, along with eating a delicious breakfast meal.
Host a get-together
Inviting over a few friends (however many the state or county allows) can still be so much fun for a 21st birthday. You can do everything you'd do with your friends at a big party, but, this way, you cut out all the people who you probably would have ignored anyway.
Go alcohol shopping
You can bring a few friends to a nearby liquor shop and just buy anything you want, since you couldn't do that in the past. And, if you look young enough, they might even not believe your ID is real.
