When Summer Fridays roll around on Stone Street, it can be tough to tell where one bar ends and the next one begins. The outdoor seating on this cobblestone street in FiDi kind of resembles Oktoberfest, but instead of lederhosen, you’ll mostly see recently polished shoes and white dress shirts. We tend to gravitate to the picnic tables outside Stone Street Tavern, which has a better beer list than most spots on the block, a big menu of affordable bar food, and Happy Hour till 7pm.
