I've noticed something positive proliferating recently: outdoor seating.
Potbelly and Pete's Apizza both have outdoor seating, as do some other local spots - Wonderland has a big area as does The Heights, and Red Rocks Pizza and Columbia Heights Coffee have some tables too. Rumbero's has applied for it as well - not sure if they have any yet.
I'm a big fan of outdoor seating, and I hope to see some more as more spots come in. Any favorites out there?
