Everyone knows the saying “April showers bring May flowers”, and although Portland rarely turns up short in the shower part, I know everyone is ready for some consistently sunny days. Mock Crest Tavern has that great patio outside where you can see the sky, feel the sun and watch the hummingbirds flit from flower to flower. It’s one of my favorite features they offer. So, grab your seat whether it’s inside or out and get ready for some sun.
