Little Water Cantina isn't the only killer patio debuting today for Cinco de Mayo. Poquitos says its patio opens today, adding seating for 57 to a restaurant where waits can stretch to nearly two hours on weekends. The new space is tricked out with a roof and Seattle-appropriate radiant heating in both floors and the bench seats. Technically it's an enclosed patio, meaning the windows can open completely when the weather is actually nice. It also has a second bar, two fire pits and a prime spot overlooking a busy stretch of Pike Street.
We're guessing it will be pretty crowded, even without the $5 shots of El Jimador Reposado tequila they're offering up today. If you'd prefer to do your margarita-swilling elsewhere, Jess Voelker has a list of suggested destinations.
