the outdoor tables are the best. especially for an afternoon beer. The sun will be shining right at you at that time of day and you can enjoy beer and a conversation by the sidewalk on a summer day. There will be guys there alone who've gone through heavy breakups. They'll sit back and enjoy the pleasant afternoon heat with you or they may come sit next to you to talk to you of their woes. If this happens just order another round and hear the guy out.
