Calico is the kind of place you’d take an out-of-towner post-Blagden Alley photo opp, but it’s also where to turn when you want a great patio in Shaw. You can even enjoy it when it gets cold - the space includes a big deck complete with an old greenhouse, string lights, and heat lamps (There’s plenty of seating inside, too, in case the weather is truly bad). You can get cocktails in Capri Sun-style pouches, and the small menu has shareable options like mac and cheese and fried clams.
