The best patios to enjoy on a Baton Rouge summer evening

Summertime is finally here! And even though scorching temperatures are a Louisiana norm, the heat is a little more bearable knowing it’s summer. So when it starts to cool off for the day, why not grab a refreshing drink and good bite to eat outdoors.
