Summer, sadly, does not last forever. The sun eventually goes away and stays away. Our window for dining and drinking and being outside is basically three months. Indeed, the owner of Naked City in Greenwood told me that the few months that his outdoor seating is open, it’s like adding another business to his restaurant. But when fall comes, this extra business is gone, and the deck ends up alone and empty for many months. So, while you can, enjoy the great decks of this city. To name just a few: Westward on Lake Union, Saint John’s on Capitol Hill, and the Twilight Exit in the Central District. (For more recommendations, see “Doing It in Public.”)
