EAT outside. DRINK outside. BE outside.
Get out of your house and onto a patio.
Holy Toledo, Summer is upon us! And it can be torture to let hot summer days waste away while you're stuck at work. So when 5 o'clock hits nothing can be better than dining al fresco or grabbing some cold drinks at your favorite eatery or pub. We asked people on the street to identify their favorite patios around the Glass City. Did we miss your favorite patio? Let us know on the City Paper Facebook page. Cheers!
