Many bars claim that they’ve enclosed and heated their patios in an attempt to bring you out on those more than chilly days, yet, as you stand in the sub-zero temperature of the latest “heated patio” while your buddy takes his time with that never-ending cigarette and drones on about what his girl did or did not do, you realize that it was all a farce. It may be enclosed, but it sure isn’t heated.
Well, in the winter of 2013/2014, Wick’s on Baxter took the big leap and enclosed the front patio with removable walls the entire length of the bar and band sides of the restaurant (2/3 of the length of the building) and ran a 45 food Gas Tube Heater that keeps the patio at a toasty 70 degrees. Yep, whether she did do it or she didn’t do it, it won’t matter. Because YOU, my friend, are warm!
