Southwest Porch at Skyline Park reopens tonight

The weather may still be slightly schizophrenic, but most of the restaurants along the 16th Street Mall have started hosting diners and drinkers on their patios. And tonight, the Southwest Porch at Skyline Park, which debuted last September at the base of the D & F Clock Tower, will join that group, reopening the open-air deck with a public party.

As it did last fall, the porch will feature a lineup of drinks paired with pizzas from mobile pie-slinger Brava! Pizza, which has been serving mall-goers all winter long.

Festivities tonight include free food and drinks, live entertainment and a chance to win free air travel from Southwest Airlines. The party runs from 5 to 7 p.m.
