Two Blast-from-the-Past Patio Scenarios

Remember these?

Rio Bravo: It’s back (as “Ray’s Rio Bravo”) after a 13-year hiatus. Yep, still doing the Tex-Mex thing. Plus, there’s a patio.
Basil’s: Also back after a fire put things on hold nearly a year ago. Yep, still doing the tapas thing. And they also got the patio memo. Teamwork. 

Saturday
Raft a Little. Drink Beer a Little.
RAFT. DAMN RIGHT.

Raft a Little. Drink Beer a Little.

This is how dates happen: tomorrow, you’re driving down to Columbus with someone outdoorsy and special, spending a couple hours whitewater rafting, then listening to live music while drinking beer and eating cheesesteaks from a food truck. They happen other ways, too, but this way is best.

ROLL SURVIVOR

MF Sushi. They Do Lunch Now.

MF Sushi has your weekend plans covered. At least the lunch portion of them. They’re launching a new one with a handful of specials to choose from. They rotate often and there are zero substitutions. So if you say, “Substitutions, please,” they’ll say, “No.” Just clarifying.

This Music Fest Hasn’t Happened Before
WRECK, PLEASE

This Music Fest Hasn’t Happened Before

The Masquerade is celebrating its 25-year anniversary by throwing you a brand-new, two-day music festival. Expect 60 different bands and a bunch of people acting like they’re at a music festival. The 60 bands feels like more of the takeaway here.

Wednesday
Atlas Has Live Patio Music Now
JAM CHOPS

Atlas Has Live Patio Music Now

It seems Atlas is concerned about your midweek music-and-patio intake. So every Wednesday, you can now enjoy live music and a full menu on their terrace. Which means jazzy renditions of Coldplay and Stevie Wonder and truffle pierogi dumplings. And original-Picasso sightings because you’re still at Atlas.
