Greenwood Park is a great indoor/outdoor spot for group hangs or birthdays in South Slope. There are bocce courts outside, lots of space for your friends, and some solid bar food to share. You could definitely have a winter-time gathering here (there’s enough room inside and the outside seats have heaters), but it’s at its best during the warmer weather.

Earl’s Beer & Cheese
Earl’s menu of pig and cheese heavy snacks pairs perfectly with the small but righteous selection of draft beers that they have on tap. Head up north sometime to check it out, and also visit Earl’s sister restaurant around the corner, ABV.
