I don’t need to tell you. It’s getting colder. We don’t have that much longer in the 70s, so find a patio and enjoy. (Note: not all of these are patios, some are just outside spaces)

Angry Ale’s

Location: Montford
Agenda Pro Tip: Saturday specials include $15 Light Buckets and $8 Ale’s Liquor Pints. Arguably top spot to watch college football. Kitchen open until 2 a.m.
