This new burrito picnic is the ultimate social-distancing hack for a day at the beach

Miami-Dade may have reopened its beaches today, but hitting the sand won’t be what you’re used to now that we have new guidelines to follow—including banning coolers. Before you get too bummed about not being able to drink and eat on the shore, there’s an easy way around it.

South of Fifth Mexican restaurant Lolo’s Surf Cantina just launched a grab-and-go package for two that’s filled with all the delicious sustenance you’ll need to take you through a day in the sun. Called the Burri-toes in the Sand, the complete meal for two includes a bottle of pre-batched margaritas, heavy-duty plastic cups, lime wedges, each person’s choice of burrito and chips and guacamole to share. The complete package is $69 and available for pick-up seven days a week. Orders can be placed in person or ahead of time by calling the restaurant (305-735-6973).

But that’s not the best part. Not only does everything come neatly packed in an insulated bag, but you also get a burrito blanket to sit atop and enjoy it. Yours to keep, the giant, cozy tortilla stretches across six feet and doubles as a social-distancing reminder. Folks who are still unsure about how much space to leave between them and the beachgoer next to them now have a yardstick they can easily repurpose. Plus, it works at home, too. The next time someone in your quaran-crew gets too close or wants to spend even more time with you, just drape yourself in it and spread your arms out wide. That’s how far they need to stay away from you, too.
