The Great Outdoors
I love to eat outdoors. I don't even mind heat and bugs, but for sure, this time of year is prime, before you have to deal with those summer hassles.
I had lunch at Nada today. It turned out to be the inauguration of their patio. Most pleasant: far enough from the street to not be exhausty, with two young trees big enough to give shade, a barrier that turns it into an outdoor room. There's even a lounge with couches and chairs out there. Lucky if you grab that for drinking margaritas.
Fountain Square was packed with people as I walked over there, and Rockbottom's outdoor area was open, too, planted nicely and looking very attractive. They must be glad the Fountain Square project is done.
Those are just two of a lot of nice outdoor patios in town: I like The Blind Lemon (well, just for drinking) Gajah Wong, York St., Molly Malone's in Pleasant Ridge, among many others. Click here to tell us your favorite? Here are some of the favorites so far.
