2007_04_alfresco.jpgToday is beautiful, almost to the point of being annoyed that your office and/or apartment is stuffy and hot. (Heat season, as in when your landlord/building owner is required to heat your building, is in effect until May 31.) But if you were thinking of getting in some alfresco dining this week, you might want to make those plans for tonight. The week's weather will turn cooler and rainy starting tomorrow.

Here are outdoor dining options from CitySearch. And maybe Thursday will be better, but it won't be in the 70s.

Fun fact: Yesterday was 86 degrees in Central Park - a new record (old one: 1996, 85 degrees)!
