Now that summer has finally decided to show up and it's just about the right temperature for this town of weather wimps, it's time for us to take advantage of the benefits of our favorite season. Let's become one with nature and enjoy the splendor of soaking in the great outdoors. That's right, it's time for us to drink outside. Tropicana at the Roosevelt is a prime location to enjoy cocktails in the open summer air, whether it's lampin' in the sun nursing a hangover from the night before during the day, or a late-night outing under the smoggy Hollywood sky. You might even be able to spot a star or two on a good night. Either way, cocktails seem better when you're sipping them next to a David Hockney-painted pool. Go HERE to see where else you should go to get your outdoor drank on this season with our list of L.A.'s 10 best places for summer cocktailing.
