Weekend Plans Post: The Triumphant Return to the Renaissance Festival
When I went to the Ren Faire in 2019, that was the first time I’d gone in a *LONG* time. It was a treat, of course. The turkey legs, the pageantry, the anachronism, the dozens upon dozens of shops, and the jousting tournament.
Well, 2019 was a long, long time ago, wasn’t it? Man, we didn’t know how good we had it. After a 2020 where I was locked in the house and a 2021 where I *FINALLY* got my vaccine and went to Disney in the blissful window that started two weeks after the second shot, and a 2022 where I went to Iceland (of all places), I think that I’m finally ready to wander a little bit closer to “back to normal”.
We’ve ceased grocery delivery and have started getting all of our stuff from the store ourselves. We haven’t yet eaten in a restaurant (well, outside of Disney or Iceland) but we have done stuff like “get stuff To Go from Chipotle”. Well… it might be time to go up to Larkspur and see what it’s like in the 1400s-1700s again.
We know to keep socially distanced once there but 90% of the faire is outside in the first place and even when we went last time, we weren’t stacked up on top of each other outside of buying tickets or getting food. We’ll know to be careful (we’ll have a mask in our pocket) for buying tickets and food and the rest of the time, well, it should just be nice to all hang out together and do something vaguely normalish again. It’ll be nice to eat a turkey leg. It’ll be nice to see the joust. It’ll just be nice to walk around at an Outside Event with friends.
Of course the weekend will also hold the usual… laundry, Costco, etc. But it’ll just be nice to walk around at an Outside Event with friends.
So… what’s on your docket?
