The Alibi Refreshes
Our annual Summer Dining Guide
By Ty Bannerman
Summer. Sweat-dripping, skin-burning, broiling-hot-wind-blowing summer. And even though this July’s monsoons have brought some much needed relief, the higher humidity tends to make our swamp coolers even less efficient than they were already. And once the rain stops, it’s back to stuffy, sweltering reality.
The point is: It’s hot.
I don’t know about you, but I actually find it kind of hard to get into eating in the summer. Frankly, I don’t particularly want to move between the hours of 2 and 8 p.m. at all, and forget about cooking. The last thing anyone wants is a hot stove fighting against their struggling cooler for supremacy.
That’s why this year, we at the Alibi decided to make our annual Summer Dining Guide all about refreshment. The kind of dining that actively cools you down, that you don’t mind jumping into a hot car to seek out. Whether you prefer iced espresso, aguas frescas or wheat ale, we’re going to help you find relief from the heat in the most delicious ways possible.
