Soak up the spring warmth on Luna's secluded, greenery-filled patio.
Although the months-long season of A/C usage has now arrived, I found myself pleasantly surprised to leave the confines of my cubicle this afternoon to step into the heat of 84 degrees on an early May day. Let the countdown begin: Summer is coming, and with it, all those glorious days spent eating and drinking outdoors.
If you like drinking on patios, consider yourself outdoorsy.
