I was pleasantly surprised to see the nationally known Blue Ginger restaurant in Wellesley now offering outdoor seating. That's another way to add life to a streetscape -- not to mention allow people to enjoy the beautiful late summer/early autumn weather.
Last Sunday in Provincetown, the last-weekend-of-summer weather was absolutely perfect, and we were able to enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner al fresco at our inn (breakfast) and various local restaurants. Outdoor tables were packed, no doubt adding to the revenues of local businesses as well as to tourist appeal. It's such a shame to have to go indoors on a gorgeous day, instead of being able to enjoy a drink or a meal outside.
