One of my favorite things to do is venture off to Desert Ridge Marketplace for a date with Justin! We live a short 4 minutes from all the fun, and they are constantly growing that area! I told Justin we can’t ever move away because I’m always so excited about the new spots, and it’s seriously a one-stop shop for food + shopping. Typically our date looks something like this…
We grab Starbucks (of course), and sit out at the table areas to enjoy! Sometimes I’ll even bring my laptop out there to work when I’m alone. Next, we do a little shopping. My favorite stores to hit are H&M, Sunglasses Hut, and American Eagle! The H&M is HUGE, and fairly new. I feel like I’m there all the time! I recently snagged some cute everyday basics! Yassss! After we do some window shopping (and I do actual shopping ;)), we’re usually about ready for eat.. and drink! Desert Ridge Recently opened up a “Sip And Stroll” where you can go up to Copper Cantina’s pop up bar, grab a drink, and stroll through the district! I love this concept so much! I usually opt for a glass of red wine! They are open Fri-Sunday, and for special events.
We end with dinner and drinks! There are a ton of restaurant options, but if you’re into live music & a fun atmosphere I highly recommend Copper Blues! They have live entertainment every week, delicious food + drinks! We recently went for a date night and had such an amazing experience! We stayed for a few hours because the music was so good! You can check out their upcoming shows HERE!
I wanted to let you guys know about some other places they recently opened, if you’re local! Breakfast Kitchen Bar is the new brunch spot, and it’s SO yummy! They also just opened a Thirsty Lion Gastropup! I can totally see us hanging out there on the weekends, or to watch games! If you follow me on Instagram, I’ll keep updating on the new spots! One more thing: They host really outdoor fitness classes for those interested!
