This might be wishful thinking on a Friday in February, but hopefully winter is in the rearview mirror and warm weather is on the way soon. So let's daydream with this week's Open Thread question: which Washington restaurant or bar really says spring and summer to you? Maybe it's somewhere with a gorgeous patio or roof deck, or a spot with the best beer on tap and picnic-worthy food on the menu. Either way, feel free to enlighten us on the number one spot you can't wait to visit when that first perfect sunny, 70 degree day hits. Share your thoughts in the comments, or send a nomination to the always-open tipline. —Adele Chapin
