Patio Life: Dining Al Fresco

Patio Life: Dining Al Fresco

One of the things I like best about the first warm day of spring is the certain knowledge that soon, very soon, I will be able to dine al fresco again. If I'm lucky, I may secure a sidewalk table at my favorite city café. Even better, I'll be able to forego restaurant reservations altogether, and revel in my own private patch of patio...

In reality, my urban oasis is quite small. But in my mind, it's Tuscany. And my slice of Tuscany has herbs and string lights and a flower bed. My Tuscany gets filled to capacity once a month in the summer when we show movies against the wall. In my Tuscany, ice cubes clink in the glasses of friends and the barbeque takes culinary center stage...

What about you? What do your al fresco dreams look like?
