Bars and restaurants hoping to attract guests this winter are becoming next-level creative with their outdoor options. The Tied House, 124 N. Water St., announced today they were planning a "festive and fabulous outdoor experience" on their patio called the Tied House Chalet.

"We plan on serving a variety of hot alcoholic beverages and hot bites under hot outdoor heaters. Plan to get cozy in this experience, bring a blankie and let’s enjoy safe, wintery weekends together under the stars," reads the Instagram post.

The Tied House opened in 2018 in the historic Third Ward building formerly occupied by Irish Pub and the iconic M&M Club.

It sounds like the Chalet will also provide also an opportunity to show off your new winter fashion, so now's the time to start shopping for wonderfully warm layers.

"Some of us may even be sporting a 1980s snowsuit and moon boots because it seems like an absolutely necessary fashion decision and well, why the heck not?" reads the post.

Exactly. Why the heck not?

Molly Snyder grew up on Milwaukee's East Side and today, she lives in the Walker's Point neighborhood with her partner and two sons.

As a full time senior writer, editorial manager and self-described experience junkie, Molly has written thousands of articles about Milwaukee (and a few about New Orleans, Detroit, Indianapolis, Boston and various vacation spots in Wisconsin) that range in subject from where to get the best cup of coffee to an in-depth profile on the survivors of the iconic Norman apartment building that burned down in the '90s.

She also once got a colonic just to report on it, but that's enough on that. 

Always told she had a "radio voice," Molly found herself as a regular contributor on FM102, 97WMYX and 1130WISN with her childhood radio favorite, Gene Mueller.

Molly's poetry, essays and articles appeared in many publications including USA Today, The Writer, The Sun Magazine and more. She has a collection of poetry, "Topless," and is slowly writing a memoir.

In 2009, Molly won a Milwaukee Press Club Award. She served as the Narrator / writer-in-residence at the Pfister Hotel from 2013-2014. She is also a story slam-winning storyteller who has performed with The Moth, Ex Fabula and Risk!

When she's not writing, interviewing or mom-ing, Molly teaches tarot card classes, gardens, sits in bars drinking Miller products and dreams of being in a punk band again.
