5 Things We’re Excited to Eat and Drink This September

A backyard Aperol Spritz, roast duck and banana pie are on our radar this month.

With September here, we’re still chasing summer and taking in as many patio days as possible before the weather starts to turn. Here are some indoor and outdoor spots to enjoy summertime favourites, or dig into with some delicious carbs on a cool day.

Tavernetta’s backyard patio is the perfect place to spend an afternoon before the snow starts to fall (yikes). Grab a table and order an Aperol Spritz while it’s still technically Aperol season, and play some bocce ball on the lawn.

Let’s face it  — summer is expensive. With all the camping trips, summer vacations, patio drinks and trips to the ice cream shop, our wallets are feeling a bit light by this time of year. Luckily, you can get a heaping bowl of pasta for just $9 on Tuesdays at all four of Via Cibo’s locations. Choose from pomodoro, arrabiata, alfredo, rosé or pesto.
