I wish I would've poked around the Gaslamp earlier this week; we went to the SD Zoo, and stopped over by Petco Park because 1) I miss going to baseball games so much (but don't want to pay $100's of dollars per seat, as prices were for the Dodgers series  >:( ) and b) I wanted to drop into the team store to see if they had anything I _had_ to buy.  I'll hopefully get to a Padres game during their next homestead in a few weeks, and I'll do some recon then if no one else has.

As for going to the SD Zoo (and Safari Park, which I went to as well - hey, we're on Spring Break & fully vaxxed!):
* AWESOME EZPZ reservation process online.  We renewed our membership and once that's done it just a matter of a few website clicks.
* the health screening is incredibly easy as well.  As the Zoo they have most of the whole front 1/3rd of their parking lot closed and roped off in lines with several 'booths' of staff asking standard health questions.  There are also a ton of porta-potties at the near the entrance to the health screening line for anyone that has to go and can't wait.  We went to the Zoo Monday am, not long after opening, so there was no wait.
At the Safari Park their health screening is a drive-in process in the parking lot so it was even easier.  Again, we went on a Thursday not long after open so no waiting.  The best part, though, was we were able to park in what used to be the VIP/Reserved (ie extra pay) parking: so no traversing a hill in the parking lot that one would have to take on if they parked further away!
* folks were generally REALLY good about social distancing and masks: and most were generally aware of smaller kids existed to get closer looks at the animals and were giving the kids room/space.  Some of the exhibits are not open (for example, at the Safari Park the bat house is closed), and some indoor exhibits that are indoors have a 'fast pass' type ticketing service where you get a ticket and then come back (ex: the platypus exhibit at the Safari Park, though good luck seeing those shy buggers who apparently rarely come out of their 'cave' off-exhibit).  The petting zoos are closed, and some of the exhibits now have arrows to streamline the flow: the majority of folks actually followed the arrows, but at every exhibit with 'em there were of course a family or two who did their own thing.

My wife has asthma, and we (especially her) have been on the way "safe" side throughout the pandemic: not shopping inside a grocery store for the most part since July 3rd 2020, not getting any food for take-out, not really going anywhere.  Our youngest has been a virtual learner all year, and our college kiddo is also virtual their entire frosh year, and my wife has been working from home since March 13th 2020; I'm the only one who's been going to work regularly in-person, but that's pretty much all I've been going to.  It was a big deal for my wife especially to get out of the house, but we know how wide-open the Zoo & Safari Park generally are and felt comfortable & everything went smooth.  I personally am now looking forward to going to baseball games & the movie theater, and I think we're also ready to get some restaurant food (though, to bring this thread back around, our favorite Thai food in Carmel Mt./Rancho Bernardo area closed last summer so we are on the lookout for a good local Thai restaurant).
