Katharine Shilcutt listed her favorite patios for catching up with friends, leading commenter ostiones to suggest the Poop Deck in Galveston:
Not Houston, but Galveston, and no food, but good strong drinks, the Poop Deck Club on Seawall Boulevard is mesmerizing at night, especially with a full moon. Add a gentle Gulf breeze, and time melts away.
And commenter Early Cuyler adds that bikers hang out there. How have we not visited this establishment? Must. Remedy.
