The people I was with and I have some friends coming in from out of city & every one of us were trying to plan an itinerary of things they would love to do, the people I was with and I are fortunate in our area to have a lovely Waterfront & many interesting historical sites that can be visited, but my greatest dilemma was where every one of us would be eating out tonight, i am not absolutely fond of hosting big dinner get together so I wanted to find odd locations that our friends would find intriguing to eat as well. I began to look through online reviews of local restaurants to find sites. There were many with exotic menus & some with local flair that I wanted to try but one in particular caught my attention. The reason for this had nothing to do with the menu but the comments that were made about the patio seating area at the restaurant. The people I was with and I live in the Northern section of the country & every one of us wait for months for warm-weather to arrive but when it does it shows up with a vengeance. It seems every one of us go from snow storm to sweltering heat within a matter of weeks & eating outside is normally not my number one thing to do, then however, this particular restaurant had rave reviews about its outdoor patio & one of the reasons was that they had it temperature controlled. I thought this rather strange because why would you try to maintain a particular temperature while sitting outside, by the Articles went on to explain that they had big portable units going all the time to keep the patio warmer & cooler weather & comfortable when it was too tepid outside. I thought that this must cost them a fortune but it must have been great for business. Customers could have the best of both worlds & they didn’t mind paying for it, then even if the dinner prices were slightly higher than other restaurants the locale was packed all the time.
