Winter is coming to an end (finally!), but that doesn’t mean chilly nights won’t still be around. Safe dining out is still a challenge, and the warm temps at night cannot get here soon enough!
We’ve updated our heated patio options around town so you can get out and enjoy a happy & warm meal with fam & friends.
Note about the Enclosed Outside Spaces
Some spots have enclosed or tented their patios and some have even installed “dining igloos” and greenhouses for more comfortable outdoor seating. Important to note, however, that a completely enclosed space outdoors can be as conducive to spreading the virus as an enclosed space indoors. In completely enclosed spaces, the fresh air flow of the outdoors is mostly lost, and the virus can more easily spread from infected people. Ventilation is still critical!
