Summer Dips at Jack Astors

In the midst of this beautiful sunny weather, who doesn’t love hitting up patios? To help you maximize your patio time this summer, Jack Astor’s has expanded their patio menu and boasts taking “extreme patio measures” including providing complimentary sunscreen, beer coasters that double as “rain guards” and a chance to win a spontaneous plane trip to one of the greatest patios in Muskoka.

The expanded patio menu at Jack Astor’s features five appetizers and shareable dips including Fiesta Guacamole, French Onion and Bacon, Sriracha Hummus, Mexican Black Bean and Baba Ghanoush; dips are served with tortilla chips, pita chips or crispy Yukon Gold fries. While sampling the patio menu at Jack Astor’s on John St., the Baba Ghanoush with their crispy Yukon Gold fries was definitely my favourite.

Their drink menu also includes peach and wildberry margaritas. The sangria is a must-try!

If you love taking selfies, be sure to tweet or instagram a selfie at one of Jack Astor’s patios @Jack_Astors along with your location and #Jackspatio on selected Saturdays before 1PM, and you and your guests could win a limo ride to Billy Bishop Airport and get flown on a private pontoon plane that very afternoon to a lakeside patio in Muskoka! The eligible Saturdays are July 12, 26, August 16 and 23. Full rules and regulations in this PDF here.

And it gets even better for patio-goers who brave the rain.
