It's supposed to be one hell of a nice weekend. Thanks be to the weather gods for granting us yet another two days of sunshine and warmth to offset the miserable June we endured. (We'll forgive them this morning's shower.) So what are you going to do with all that free time and sunshine? Drink, of course! And we've got a round-up of bars and restaurants with sweet patios for optimum al fresco boozing.

in Carver, MA. Most Renaissance faires can only dream of what King
Richard’s has achieved: a permanent venue at an 80-acre wooded park in

that must be seen to be believed. I attended the faire several times in
my middle and high school years, and I decided to drop everything on
Labor Day for the chance to find out if the festival is still as fun as
All Irish and non-Irish revelers alike faced stricter sanctions and harsher penalties this year for party-hardying throughout last weekend.
