It’s about 3:30 on a sunny and hot Wednesday afternoon. Where would you rather be but the beach, right? Let me give you an excuse to cut out of work early and hit Folly: Washout Wednesdays at Rita’s Grill.

Every Wednesday, Rita’s has live music and drink specials on the big patio. And they’re also out there grilling up some food. Literally. Last week, they had a choice of tuna or brisket for $10. Combine that with a $2.50 vodka drink and you might have discovered a little patio of heaven.
