Just because the summer is ending doesn't mean your social life has to. While going out in the summer is definitely preferred by many, early fall can still be a great time to fit in some patio drinks before the impending doom of winter ahead.
The leaves are changing colour, so all your photos will be 10x more Instagrammable, you don't have to worry about the humidity ruining your hair, and everyone knows that fall fashion is the absolute cutest, so it's a perfect excuse to show off your new outtie.
If you're down for drinks this fall, head to one of these amazing patios in Edmonton to fulfil your cravings:
1. The Canadian Brewhouse // Various locations in Edmonton
Home of the $5 Tequila Tuesday shot. Brewhouse is always a super laid back and fun environment, serving classic pub food and a wide variety of drinks.
2. The Black Dog Freehouse // 10425 82 Ave
Always an Edmonton favourite. If you wanna go to the club, without actually going to the club, this is the place for you. Live DJ's, and drink specials every day of the week always keep things fun.
