Dining Al Fresco on a Budget

The best thing about a warm spring evening is dining al fresco. And while I love being in my own backyard with the BBQ cooking up something tasty, I’d rather skip the work and head out. One of my favorite places to dine alfresco is Lopez. There’s nothing like grabbing a table on the patio on a Thursday night with my hubby or the girls. For some reason, the their blood orange margaritas taste even better outside! Get there early on a weeknight when drinks and apps are only 5 bucks! Pick a bunch of apps to share like goat cheese fundido (I’d put it in a cup and drink it it’s so damn good); the sweet & spicy calamari; and the shrimp and grits with smoked Gouda. Great night, great food and drinks sitting under the stars for less than $30 a person. Not bad!
