Chicago's new and coming soon patios of 2015

Sky’s out, thighs out. Sun’s out, guns out. And you should be too … outdoors, that is. The weather is finally warming up, and as Chicagoans, it’s our right to have as much fun in the sun as possible while it lasts. This season’s newest outdoor spaces are upping the ante on dining and drinking alfresco with everything from bocce ball to cityscape views to firepits for marshmallow-roasting. Grab your sunglasses, pack your sunscreen, stay hydrated, and for heaven’s sake, Chicago, stay outside. -- Lisa Arnett and Heather Schroering, RedEye
