Lift Your Spirits
September, 2020 - Issue #192

It doesn't feel like the weekend until you raise a glass with friends or family and take that first sip of your signature drink. Well, start dreaming about Friday with fresh fervor because we've put together a round-up of our favorite patios to make a toast in all your weekend glory.

Handcrafted Cocktails
Sipping cocktails on the patio is one of those simple joys in life, and this month, we're spending the fleeting days of summer dining outdoors at Marston's. What better way to celebrate the passage of one season to the next than with a handcrafted cocktail and a view of that gorgeous California sky? All cocktails at Marston's are handcrafted, muddled and mixed to perfection, so you can taste the freshness in every glass. We love the Blackberry Mojito, Hendricks Cucumber Collins and Aperol Spritz on a warm evening. But you can always opt for the classics, such as a Templeton Old Fashioned, or order from the full bar. Make sure to plan plenty of time to linger because, with the perfect setting, you'll definitely want to stay awhile.

Wine to Dine for
If dinner is really about the wine for you, then Salt Creek Grille has the library that'll keep your palette wanting more. The choices are aplenty with an extensive list by the glass, as well as a hand-curated selection of by-the-bottle vintages that invites you to taste vineyards up and down California. If you're celebrating, be sure to ask for Greg's List of Exclusive Wines - a legacy in the making for Owner Greg Amsler. Regardless of how you fill your glass, however, expect an evening of top-quality service, sumptuous specials and that "this is the place to be" feeling we've all missed so much. If you've been putting off that coveted reunion you dreamt about all quarantine-long, now is the time to book your table at Salt Creek Grille, where you can rest assured that top-of-the-line safety precautions will keep the party private and the laughs coming all night long.

Craft Brews on Tap
Come for the beer. Stay for the burgers. Rustic Burger House is what burger n' brew dreams are made of. With more than 15 craft beers on tap at any given time, the Rustic bar is a feast for the eyes, with tap handles from previous pours on display like trophies. Ask for a staff recommendation if you're not sure where to start, but remember - it's like Disneyland; you can't do the whole thing in one day. So, instead, make plans to come back for more. As if the beer isn't reason enough, the burgers are legend at this mouth-watering gastropub. Only Harris Ranch certified Angus beef patties are worthy of the inventive and crave-worthy burger creations, so it's no surprise that this locally-owned burger joint is award-winning as well as an excellent place to hang out.
