Sitting outside on a patio with a big drink, great company, and a nice breeze never gets old. When it’s with your people, there’s a lil something more. Hamburger Mary’s in Long Beach is just that place. Vampire Weekend on the jukebox…semi-friendly bartender/server ( he may just be busy) , the scent of Aqua di Gio (circa 1995) wafting our way…the day couldn’t be more perfect.
