  • Way Off-Topic Eating Outside when Weather Allows?

    Who here enjoys eating in their garden, their balcony, or whatever, in the outside, when the weather allows it?

    During the wonderful Spring days (which now seem very grim today actually) the last month I have been eating outside on my balcony. Lunch, or a breakfast, or dinner. Just once a day though; but it was nice. Relaxing, enjoying the sun, stuff like that. Maybe it's because there was no wind at all on that side of my apartment, but it was worth it for me.

    Curious to see how others deal with nice weather and exploit it and enjoy it when possible?

    I do, I go down to Lake Erie and sit on the balcony of a place called Callahan's.
    Me and my cousin-in-law usually, we order either the fish platter, or fish dinners alone..

    Sometimes we will even have a beer, then just grab a Coffee at Tim Horton's before the ride home, which is not very long about 30 minutes...

    I also love outdoor Barbecue's, which are mostly held with Family on special occasions "Birthdays" etc..

        I tend to eat outside when I can. Usually between March and July is good for this. August and September are usually too hot though you can get a morning coffee in as long as its not too late in the morning. October through February are usually windy and cold enough so that it isn't enjoyable.

          I consider myself super fortunate because

          a) I live on the island of Kauai (Hawaii) and
          b) It's a five-minute walk to a really nice beach park.

          My wife and I go down there all the time to watch the sunsets. A deli there has everything needed for a nice picnic.

              Yeah I don't mind eating outside when it is nice weather. Although it's so close to winter now that it's not funny. It is so cold now that it could possibly snow over here in Australia.
              Normally I would have something like a pie if I am at my course. Tonight I will have to settle with some pumpkin soup. Need something to warm me up.
              Will be happy once it hits 20 degrees. Today it only got to 8 degrees. Brrrrrrrrrr
              It's so cold that it could freeze the nuts off a brass monkey.

                Joe yell really loud and say hi!

                I don't much anymore, I spent a decent ammount of time camping as a kid. Plus I don't really have anywhere to do that right now. The dust/soot/etc from the local steel mills here is pretty bad right here where I am. Our houses and porches etc get covered and its a pita to keep cleaned.

                      Oh, you developed a phobia, they usually dissolve in time.. Or you could push yourself out half way and maybe eat on the steps...

                          Sitting on the bank of the river eating fresh roasted corn on the cob while drinking an ice cold beverage of your choice.

                            in the back garden with a bbq going is perfect. or just a few drinks and the laptop in the back garden works well for me too.
