San Antonians love to sit outdoors. Come summertime (aka the minute Fiesta is over), we'll don our coolest linens, seersucker and any fashion of shorts to drink a few cold ones under big pecan trees. It only makes sense that our readers' two favorite patios are literally down the road from each other. The Friendly Spot has earned the title of Best Patio several times since its 2009 opening with their ever-growing and changing craft brew list, while the Hill Country-reminiscent Alamo Ice House, which opened this past September, draws an outdoor-happy crowd with its brisket tacos and twang-happy musicians. Don't forget the sunscreen.
