Minneapolis Patio Week

Monday May 20, 2013

It’s finally here.

That week where almost every restaurant you love puts tables outside. Puts chairs outside. Picnic tables, benches, loungers. Everything.

And you know what that means. It’s the best time of the year.

It’s time to eat and drink outside.

Yes, the patio season is upon us, and we realized two things. First, everything tastes infinitely better on a patio for some reason (probably some science behind that). Second, there’s no real opener to the patio season. Fishing has an opener. Baseball has an opener. Even CANS have an opener. It’s an absolute travesty that something as magnificent as patio wining and dining doesn’t have an official “tip-of-the-cap” type of event.

That’s why we made one. And we’re doing it BIG!

Look, we made a logo and everything.

Here’s the deal: We’re calling it “Minneapolis Patio Week” and this week (May 20-24), over 25 restaurants in Minneapolis known for their excellent outdoor atmosphere will offer exclusive food and drink specials to you. You don’t have to sign up for anything, fill out some forms or put your name in a drawing. We’re giving you these deals for free because we want you to experience all the great restaurants that make up this fantastic culinary scene.

So what are you waiting for? This is the beginning of a great tradition, and it’s time for you to be a part of it. Welcome to Minneapolis Patio Week.
