    Pok Pok’s patio is nice. Just was there for dinner. Salty’s when it’s not so windy it takes your umbrella and table away is nice.

    Plan B has a great fire performance set from WMD on Sunday nights in the patio area along with the industrial music and crazy-scary-people…

    Casa Naranja on Mississippi is by far the best outdoor bar! Sand filled patio w/ individual hammock chairs, swings, and fire pit. Also normal chairs and tables if you can’t handle the swinging chairs (or have too many pitchers of sangria).

    By far the best patio in town. Love how it got the snub from the other local mags, but you nailed it here! Congrats to the Plan B staff and their fearless leader Heather.
