Dining al fresco. In December. When it’s 36 degrees.

I was in Brookline on Sunday, enjoying a walk down Harvard Street, along with lots of other people taking advantage of a walkable retail center with some interesting, non-national-chain stores ... when I passed Panera's, and saw people eating outside. Not just at a couple of tables, either, but there had to be at least half a dozen tables with people eating or having coffee/tea outdoors. It was not an Indian summer kind of day, either, but 36 degrees or so.

You know you've got a great streetscape when people enjoy sitting at an outdoor cafe when it's 36 degrees.
