It’s safe to say that many of us might have cabin fever these days, but you can get out, have fun and stay safe from a social distance at Scottsdale Quarter this month. The Quarter has several free activities for couples, singles, families and kids throughout February. The outdoor shopping center’s open-air format allows for safe shopping and dining options for Valentine’s Day and beyond.
Show your love this Valentine’s Day at the Post Your Love Wall. The interactive display, on view through March 15, encourages guests to celebrate the love in their lives by writing words of love on a sticky note and posting it on the designated wall between Albion Fit and PAIGE. Post your note and use #PostYourLove on social media to spread what makes your heart happy to an even broader audience. Post Your Love is free to participate. Markers and sticky notes are provided at no cost.
For the kiddos in your life, mark your calendar for the KidX Club Bestie Bash on February 12 from 3-6 p.m. Featuring free Valentine’s Day crafts, a balloon twister and character appearances, your kids will love the interactive elements that keep them engaged and entertained. Registration is required to participate. Register online at scottsdalequarter.com.
After a holiday season of shopping for everyone else, it’s time to treat yourself! Scottsdale Quarter’s Treat Yourself Day on February 13 from 3-6 p.m. features retailer discounts, swag bags, typewriter poetry, and live music from Henry Thompson. Registration is required to participate.
Another way to show your love for the community this season is by donating much-needed blood to the Red Cross as the world continues to fight the COVID-19 pandemic. The organization will be on site at Scottsdale Quarter February 24 and 25. Register your slot to give blood at redcrossblood.org.

Desert Domes Debut
Scottsdale Quarter presents an all-new, safe way to dine with your inner circle, perfect for a one-of-a-kind experience: Desert Domes features four partially-enclosed geodesic domes for outdoor dining, brought to guests in partnership with Culinary Dropout.
Desert Domes is located directly outside of Culinary Dropout. Each heated dome is styled with comfortable seating, desert-chic décor and ambient lighting to provide the ultimate outdoor dining experience. The domes can seat a private party of two to six guests. Outside of the domes, guests can enjoy yard games from Culinary Dropout while taking in the Scottsdale Quarter scenery.
“We are thrilled to partner with Culinary Dropout to bring this new and innovative dining experience to our guests at Scottsdale Quarter,” says Richard Hunt, General Manager of Scottsdale Quarter. “This is a truly unique and memorable way to enjoy a delicious meal in the privacy of your very own ‘bubble’.”
A restaurant where food, music and art come together, Culinary Dropout serves inventive cocktails and classic comfort food. Crowd favorites like the 36-hour pork ribs and famous fried chicken drizzled with honey can be paired with an ice-cold craft beer or a killer house-made cocktail while enjoying games and free live music with a laid-back vibe. Culinary Dropout will offer their full food and drink menu to guests dining inside the Desert Domes.
“Our new Desert Dome dining option is perfect for guests who are more comfortable dining outdoors or who want a more private experience,” says Ryan Justesen, General Manager of Culinary Dropout. “We’re so excited to bring this unique desert oasis to life.”
Desert Domes will remain open through spring. Guests can secure reservations by calling Culinary Dropout at 480-653-9701. For more information about Culinary Dropout, visit culinarydropout.com.
