Skip the cooking for tonight! We don’t know about you, but one of our favorite things to do in the summertime is to gather our friends and family for a night out for dinner on the patio! Lucky for us, Lorain County is the place to be when you’re looking for outdoor dining options. How does a sunny lunch date under an umbrella at Hot Dog Heaven in Amherst sound? Or a sunset view on Lake Erie over dinner at Jackalope in Lorain? Skipping straight to dessert? (sounds good to us!); head over to Granny Joe’s Ice Creamatorium for a sweet treat. Enjoy!
