Best place to watch Jim Gaffigan...while getting chemo.

You've heard the saying that laughter is the best medicine.  It really is good for your soul, especially when you are in the middle of some challenging moments in life.  My family has had quite a few of those "challenges" and thanks to technology, Jim Gaffigan has been with us for a few of those.  One of my favorite memories is sitting at a hospital with my kids and hanging out next to my brother as he was getting chemo.  We pulled up Jim Gaffigan and had so many laughs together.  So thankful for his humor to help us live life through those moments where they just plain suck.

Now that it is nice out, what restaurants have the best outdoor patios?

I'm a huge fan of supporting local and our family picks a local spot each week and orders some carry out.  Now that it is nicer out, I'd love to start eating out at a restaurant again on a patio.  If you are ready to venture out and are looking for a great outdoor patio, keep scrolling to see some of the best in our area.
