Sand volleyball, spiked sno-cones and sensational paninis? If that combination is your recipe for an evening (or afternoon) of bliss, then you'll certainly find your happy place at The Grove, a wonderfully secluded urban oasis wedged between the Oak Lawn and Uptown 'hoods. Though, this alfresco only supping spot, kitted out with picnic tables, hammocks, sand volleyball courts and a bocce ball pit-- isn't exactly a secret, it certainly feels like one. Not only because the place is hidden away behind a renovated 1940s era cottage (that serves as the kitchen), but also because it's only open spring through fall. Along with a super line-up of games, you'll find a menu of small bites, cocktails, beer, wine and adult frozen concoctions, including those spiked sno-cones in flavors like strawberry whipped cream vodka and orange with champagne. Oh, and best of all, you can being along your kiddos, (even your four-legged ones) to join in all the fun. Make sure you follow on Facebook to find out about drink specials and ongoing events like "yappy hours," volleyball tournaments and live music.
