5 Alternate Things to Do Instead of Watching Pope Francis’ Mass
The reality is that not everyone is religious or a Catholic for that matter and since schools and some offices will be closed due to the Papal visit, here is a list of things you can do while everyone else is attending the Papal mass in Juarez or viewing it at the Sun Bowl.
Watch A Movie
This seems like the perfect time to go watch a movie, since movie theatres will probably be pretty vacant. Top choices would include the all new Deadpool movie that has been garnering rave reviews starring the irresistible Ryan Reynolds. Or if you want to go old-school, Pretty in Pink is celebrating 30 years with a return to movie theatres for one night only on Wednesday.
With many El Pasoans at the Sun Bowl this would be the perfect time to hit up the malls. They will probably be empty with employees just hanging around bored out of their minds. Imagine the whole mall just to yourself and the attention of the employees all on you. Options include,Cielo Vista Mall, Sunland Park Mall, The Fountains at Farah, and The Outlet Shoppes at El Paso.
Enjoy a Day Out
Since kids will not be attending school, this would be a nice opportunity to go hiking or take in a picnic at your local park and bond with the family. Pack a bunch of waters and sandwiches, take some blankets and enjoy your family under the gorgeous weather El Paso is experiencing right now.
Clean & Get Organized
Turn your radio on to KISS-FM and turn it up as we'll keep you moving as you start tackling that closet you’ve been wanted to clear out. Or maybe a chance to start putting away all those heavy blankets and jackets to make room for spring linens and clothes. After all, they say cleanliness is the next best thing to godliness.
A Day of Relaxation
So maybe you pawn the kids off with grandma and you take this day to purely unwind. Maybe a self mani-pedi followed by a nice lunch while listening to KISS-FM. This may even be the perfect time to try all those Pinterest facials and recipes you’ve been aching to try but never really got the chance to do so. This can simply be a day where you enjoy some ‘me’ time to relax and recharge your batteries.
