There are few things nicer than spend-
ing the first glorious days of summer
drinking a Long Island iced tea on a
sunny patio. This fact, among many
others, is why Good Time Charley's remains
one of the most popular student bars in Ann
Arbor, with lines out the door once tempera-
tures reach above freezing. With a wide out-
door patio, in addition to better-than-passable
food, generous drink specials and a preemptive
smoking ban, Charley's remains the go-to spot
for the 21+ set - or those with a decent fake. On
certain high-volume nights, the attentive staff
will even serve beer outside while bar-goers
wait on line: That's service. After all, you bet-
ter be more than a little buzzed before you can
entertain the idea of stumbling over to Rick's.

You know you're eat-
ing poorly rolled sushi
when it falls apart the
moment your chop-
sticks unite with the outer sea-
weed/rice layer, leaving nothing
but a dismantled crab-cuc-avo
corpse all over your plate - the
worst. But this is never a prob-
lem at Sadako, this year's Best
of Ann Arbor winner for sushi.
Here, the rolls are tight and
together and always fresh and
delicious. Couple this stress-free
sushi eating experience with a

serene restaurant atmosphere -
walls and waitstaff all outfitted
in a soothing baby blue. Though
sometimes slightly overpriced,
all's well because the restaurant
splurges on the smooth chop-
sticks that don't give you splin-
ters, and if you order more than
$6 of food, you get acomplemen-
tary miso soup and a mysterious
orange dressingsalad that tastes
delicious. Sadako, a previous
Best of Ann Arbor winner, defi-
nitely stays raw.

The secret to a great Italian restau-
rant isn't just the food, though The
Original Cottage Inn certainly
delivers on that front. No, it's the
ambiance. And this Ann Arbor mainstay
knows how to present a gourmet Italian
atmosphere so coinplete you forget you're
eating next to a giant construction pit. The
eatery's two levels of ivy-colored brick
quaintness make you feel like you've just
stepped in from a Roman piazza, as does
the generous portion of olive oil your server
pours for dipping your bread. Then you taste
the deep-dish pizza, with its perfect sea-
soning and crunchy-doughy crust, and you
realize why groups like the Glee Club will
routinely take over the entire place: Italian
food this good begs to be shared with a few
dozen of your closest friends.
