    Great for a group of people to go and hangout. Watch out for underagers bc they do make checking rounds. And if you do drink might as well just get the pitcher.

    I've only been here in the summer and in the evening, but this is a fine-ass magnificent giant patio space of epic proportions. Get a few pitchers and popcorn and watch the stars rise in the sky.
