The mere thought of cracking a cold beer on an Ontario patio on a breezy, sunny day helped us get through the cold winter months.

Patio season has been a beacon of light at the end of the tunnel and, now, as we set foot on the other side, it’s high time we dig up our shorts, head outdoors, and reunite with our favourite people to celebrate the radiant days ahead and cheers to our newfound freedom.
