Au Revoir August: A Look Back at Summer Spaces

Au Revoir August: A Look Back at Summer Spaces

I think this may have been the fastest summer of my life, but maybe it's just that time seems to speed up as the days grow shorter. It's been a pleasure to vicariously experience some wonderful reader-submitted summer spaces — as August comes to a close, here's a quick look back at a few of my favorites.

From backyard bar-b-cues to city balconies, all of these spaces seem like a good place to kick back with a beer. And some of them really make me wish I had a backyard, or maybe just a bucket of crawfish.
