Blog : The Sun is Out, Hit the Decks

By Sarah Mahoney | May 6, 2015 | in

It's that time of year again when all anyone wants to do is spend time outside with friends and family. There's no better way to do this than to enjoy great food, drinks, and shopping at the best businesses in town.

On May 8, the Greater Portsmouth Chamber of Commerce will sponsor Hit the Decks, a celebratory day for enjoying dining on decks and al fresco patios throughout the seacoast.

Restaurants such as 250 Market, British Beer Company, Old Ferry Landing, Ri Ra Irish Pub, Poco's Bow Street Cantina, and many more will be participating in this great day. Poco's decks are a favorite spot amongst local and visitors. As a member of the Green Alliance, Poco's is committed to sustainability. They recycle everything possible including paper, plastic, frying oil, metals, etc. And they compost 100% of their food waste, have installed outdoor motion light sensors to cut down on energy use, and replaced one heating system with an efficient fireplace, and plan to install a new efficient pump system to replace the current, older model.

Over 50 restaurants along the Seacoast will be participating with food and drink specials for everyone. Shops like Alex and Ani, Barre and Soul, Portsmouth Spa, Wearhouse, and many more will be participating, as well as hotels and attractions and activities.

At Poco's Bow Street Cantina, there will be a sponsor party that day from 3:00p.m. to 5:00p.m.
