When the real feel gets above 100 degrees, most people are not trying to brave the heat and sit outside a restaurant for dinner, be it on the sidewalk, back patio or whatever.
Unless, we're talking about Twenty Manning, where water misters installed in the awnings above the sidewalk seating spray pretty much continuously, cooling off diners sitting outside with a refreshing and non-drenching aqua mist.
It works too — a spot-check last night at 7 pm had zero people sitting outside Snackbar (while there were people inside taking advantage of the new happy hour) compared to four sizable parties dining outside Twenty Manning, taking full advantage of the misting technology.
Even if you're just passing by, the misters, which Twenty Manning installed last year, are refreshing.
We applaud the innovation.
