Readers' Choice: John D. McGurk's
Things that are fantastic: 1) Drinking. 2) Outdoors. Ever the keen observers, the folks behind the Venice Caf? combined the two and even added some accoutrements. To wit: food, waterfalls, music, art and a veritable rainforest canopy. There's no better place in townor maybe anywhereto becalm outside avec beverage. Why stew beneath a beer-logoed umbrella when you could relax under fronds? Why surround yourself with sterile brick or stone when you could sit amid mosaics of glass and mirrors and lighters and license plates and doll parts? Enjoy a light meal as acoustic rock wafts 'round, and be sure to enjoy that choice cocktail as the rustling nature resounds.
