Psycho Suzi's patio will have nearly 40 more seats -- and new tiki drinks
While it still barely feels like spring, there continues to be more promise that warm days are on the horizon. Psycho Suzi's just announced that it is ready to debut its new, expanded patio with a slew of new tiki drinks this Friday.

They're calling it the Forbidden Cover Lounge, boasting 39 seats on the upper deck with views of the Mississippi River. That brings the total seating on their patio to 374, plenty of room for happy hour. The drinks are rum-centric, with everything from upper-shelf aged sippers to more tiki drinks. The drinks are curated by Jeff "Beachbum" Berry, author of five books about tiki drinks and cocktail culture. They'll be making many of the drink components from scratch, including orgeat, falernum, bitters, and fresh-squeezed fruit juices.
If the drinks aren't cold enough for you, they're getting on the soft-serve bandwagon and serving rum shakes and ice cream sundaes.
