As we move closer to the winter months, it's going to get a bit chillier here in the Valley.
Well, we can only hope anyway.
Which spells great news for those tired of the scorching temps.
Nothing says romance quite like a drink by the fire, right?
Here are seven spots around the Valley with great food, drinks and, in our opinion, some of the warmest patios:
