Shady trees, lots of outdoor seating and nearly every dog in the neighborhood: that’s what you’ll find in the summertime at Recess Beer Garden, one of the city’s top destinations for warm-weather day drinking. But even when it’s miserable outside, Recess offers a well-stocked bar and plenty of comfort food in nearly every form. The owners recently reopened the Campus Lounge, which now shows all the signs of becoming a Bonnie Brae mainstay for another forty years.
