For those of us who can't tolerate blazing heat, humidity and bees, eating outside is a nightmare and I refuse to do it. However, I do like the concept, just not the reality.

Easy to screen off a patio or outdoor section and brick in a grill in a screened corner. Planning to get fake grass and a big 9 piece patio furniture set. I live in a desert city so heat is a concern. Probably have to buy a big outdoor fan with mist.
