Spring Patio Kick Off at Vivace

Back in December, about two weeks after I started this Dusk Till Dawn blog, I wrote about how there was a great after-work social scene on Thursdays at Vivace (“Happy Hour (and Later) at Vivace”). That’s still the case and now that it’s spring, the large patio can be utilized, allowing the party to flow outside. Tomorrow, Vivace is holding its Spring Patio Kick Off.

The event goes from 5-11 p.m. and there’s free admission. There will be drink specials throughout the evening, including $3 light beers, $5 martinis, and $7 wine. You can also enjoy food from the $5 Bar Bites menu. And at 7 p.m. there will be live entertainment by Dean Peterson.

The Metropolitan, the retail and condo complex where Vivace is located, is just a beautiful place to be on spring and summer nights. In fact, the weekly MetLive music series begins its 2011 season next Thursday.
