Patio season is officially full on after the devastatingly hot and dry summer. The pooches are leading their sexy owners by the string past the cabanas that are playing soothing street music as cars bustle by to find a spot of their very own.

We certainly take those long, leisurely hours sipping mimosas and bloody marys very serious in our city. It is a fine way to catch up with friends, however socially distanced, shake of the revelry from the previous evening, and push the reset button from the previous week. Continue reading
