We were inspired by our Food Critic's blog about Oysters and Bloody Marys a couple weeks ago so we scraped together some fellow boozers and headed down to Casey Moore's on Sunday, November 8th to absorb a little sun (and a little alcohol).
Of course, we weren't alone (just look at the slideshow). The patio was alive with a healthy buzz of jolly daytime drinkers trying distract the impending stress of facing another work week by, well, catching a healthy buzz.
With cooler temps, good food and a heavy pour, we were in heaven.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
