Two of the best feelings in life happen after a long day at the pool or beach. We consider one of them to be, The After Sun Nap. You know the one. After rinsing the sand off and slathering your shoulders in aloe, it’s what you thought would be a “little nap before dinner,” that turns into the forget-where-you-are, best sleep you’ve had in months. Yeah, we really like that one. But to be fair, we don’t think you’d read an entire blog about it.

This brings us to the other best feeling: arriving at your dinner table–indoor or outdoor, but bonus points if it’s outdoor–and enjoying a delicious meal to the tune of a live, local band. Yep, that’s the stuff.
