Two items of seasonal bar news to pass along:
Dacha, the city's newest beer garden, closes for the winter after this Sunday. Thankfully, temperatures are supposed to be in the upper 60s, which provides a great excuse to drink German beers outdoors. Dacha will reopen next spring, hopefully with a new kitchen and indoor bathrooms.
On a related note, Garden District will close for its annual winter break on Sunday, Dec. 8, and reopen on Saturday, March 1. Get your brisket while you can.
