With its typically clear skies and dry weather, Las Vegas is an ideal place to dine outdoors after the sun goes down or when the misters turn on and the umbrellas go up.
Although most visitors to Vegas probably won’t need an excuse to dine alfresco, here’s one, just in case: Sunday is National Eat Outside Day. Forecast: 101 degrees. But it's a dry heat.
Several restaurants offer front-row seats to let you enjoy the colorful lights, and the equally colorful people, along the Strip.
From street level and perches high above the Strip, restaurateurs will greet Sunday celebrants with food and libations. Mon Ami Gabi at the Paris is offering ringside seats for viewing the throngs as they make their way along Las Vegas Boulevard.
Kitty corner at Caesars, Serendipity 3 is welcoming guests to a recently extended wraparound patio.
If you can’t eat outside over the holiday weekend, most Vegas eateries are open 365 days a year.
