Nice weather means time to enjoy the day on the patio

Spring is in the air, and to be honest, it’s felt like spring since December but that’s a topic for another day. Today we are talking about some of the cool patios around the Corridor. With the mild temperatures we’ve had lately, it’s a great time to enjoy a meal out on one of the many restaurant patios around the Corridor.

Gloria’s Latin Cuisine has one of the few patios around that can be used whether is 80 degrees or 40 degrees outside. They have plenty of outdoor heaters for the cooler temperatures as well as drop down tarps that protect you from inclement weather; as we all very well know, the weather in North Texas can change from second to the next. During the warmer months, Gloria’s patio is a great place to enjoy a cold drink with friends like the Spicy Pineapple Margarita or Fresh Guava Margarita. Bonus: The patio remains open late on Fridays and Saturdays during Gloria’s Salsa nights so you can hang out on the patio or go inside and salsa with some of the best live music in the city.
