Happy New Year!

Those of us with Q1 birthdays are the last to experience a pandemic birthday. I’m trying to remember what we did for my husband’s April birthday, and when I couldn’t remember anything (oops), I decided it was time to give some options to make sure next year I remember.

Everyone still has different levels of comfort, so some of these ideas are really simple and others are more extravagant. Some are great whether you’re an adult or for kids. Remember: Birthdays are also calorie free — so don’t forget about splurging on food!

1. Card My Yard

2. Private Rental

  • Angelika — You can watch a current movie or bring your own Blu-Ray or game to watch on the big screen.
  • Cinemark (Fairfax) — It has reclining seats. Enough said. Sit back, relax and watch a current movie.
  • Reston Ice Skating — You can rent the entire rink for 1 or 2 hours.
  • Rent out a restaurant — like Bazin’s Next Door for your “bubble.”

3. Private Class

4. Visit from the Vienna Singing Princesses

5. Visit from the Vienna Police or Vienna Fire Department

6. Paint your own pottery at Kiln and Co. or All Fired Up

7. Outings

  • Head to Top Golf.
  • Play Oak Marr Mini Golf, or hit the driving range.
  • Take a hike.
  • Explore a new restaurant.
  • Go for a drive.

8. Petting Zoo

Regardless of how you celebrate your birthday or those of your loved ones, wishing you a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year with countless birthdays ahead!
