Downtown Columbus

Have you run out of cool ideas to beat the heat? Lucky for you, we just found out about a Rooftop Beer Garden and swimming pool. Huh? You heard us, and the fun is right downtown. 

The Renaissance Hotel and Latitude 41 restaurant have always been a great place to escape for a weekend getaway or private party, but they want to invite everyone to a rooftop picnic on July 26 for swimming, live entertainment, craft beers and dinner. 

Mark your calendars for Thursday, July 26, 5:30 - 8:30 p.m. Enjoy a relaxing evening accompanied by live music, great food and local craft beers from Columbus Brewing Company. Customize your picnic, sans red or black ants, as you choose from slow-roasted pork sliders, wood-fired whole fish, grilled sweet corn, pickled beets and all kinds of other pickled veggies. Can't decide? Just relax with a beer poolside until you figure it out.

Latitude 41 plans for more of these special events, and you don't want to miss the launch. Reservations aren't required, but recommended. For more information, visit Latitude 41 and remember, it's still a fantastic place to plan a private gathering.

In the meantime, Latitude wants to give one lucky winner tickets toward din-din for the event. Post a comment here (leave your email so we can contact you if you win; we will NOT use your email for any other purpose), and tell us what is your favorite summertime activity. You will be entered to win.
