Ahhhhhh sweet summertime. In between all the weekend fun of BBQ’s, trips to the beach and pool parties, there is that annoying thing we call THE WORK WEEK!
I admit that most of the summer, I too am wishing away Monday morning through Friday afternoon…but here is something that may make the week a little more bearable.
"Dining Under The Stars" The resturants on State Street open up their doors and spill tables out onto the street, transforming their restaurant into European style, open-air eateries.
I wasn’t aware of this phenomenon until I was stuck in traffic trying to cut through Media on my way home. To my chagrin, I found the main street in town (State Street) was closed off. Once I got over my quick feeling of road rage, I was able to appreciate the unique dining experience that Media offers.
I pulled over and walked along the closed street. The sun was setting and the temperature was finally cooling off. I noticed a guy playing an acoustic guitar to some "John Mayer-esk" tune and I couldn’t help but relax. To be honest, I felt like I was walking along the streets of Rome. I was happy to discover that the shops on State Street were also open later too, so I ducked into a store and did some retail therapy (which quickly cured any remaining feelings of angst that the traffic caused).
In short…“Dining Under the Stars” is a wonderful change to a typically bland mid-week night. So, if you’re looking for a euro-dining experience, just head over to Media to distress, enjoy the warm weather and dine under the stars.
