Get Thee out to the Patio

It’s definitely patio season, and the PiPress offers a great list of the best ones in town.

The readers’ favorite? Why W.A. Frost, of course.

See the full story for the PiPress’s top 25 rooftop/terrace, along the water, and neighborhood patios.

Now will someone please tell me why Gabby’s didn’t make the list? I mean, sure, it’s not the greatest venue in town, but the patio is one of the city’s best kept secrets. I’m looking forward to Psycho Suzie’s taking over the location shortly.

Where else? Where else? What are your favorite patios in town?


What’s Your Drink?

boomd posed the question, and ericaaaaa answered: If a bartender named a drink after you, what would it be called? What would be in it?

Back at you, folks: what’s your drink? ericaaaaa’s is the Double Dimple: vodka, peach schnapps, cranberry juice, and a big ol‚Äô slice of lime as a garnish.
