The best summer party that doesn't take place on the beach is Sapore di Sale, the summer aperitivo at Da Mikele by Luzzo's. Sapore di Sale, meaning a taste of salt, is a classic Italian tune, perfect for a party.
It may not be your traditional happy hour with ridiculously low-priced drinks, but if you like filling your stomach with delicious food like I do, then it's even better.
Slurp down a regular priced cocktail (well worth the $$) from 5-8pm weeknights at Ovest, but don't think you aren't getting a bargain for your buck. These are some of the tastiest cocktails around, and ranging from $11-$13 for their pre-dinner and specialty cocktails, they really aren't something to skip.
