We've been holding off getting an outdoor dining set, not because we don't eat outside, but because we'd probably have to give up our beloved casual seating. Without room for both, we don't really want a bulky dining set taking up our entire space. Instead, grilling out and eating with plates on laps is a common thing around here. It's not the perfect set-up, but we're torn. How about you? Do you dine al fresco at a big table (round, square, rectangle?), a small bistro table, under an umbrella, on your lap, on the ground, sitting at an outdoor home bar?
