EDGE

Let’s Eat - - NEWS - WORDS BY SPANKY HIZON ENRIQUEZ

There’s some­thing about the wind ruf­fling your hair and a breeze cooling your face at the end of a long, hec­tic day. Al fresco is an es­cape, no mat­ter how brief, from the cor­po­rate chains and the con­crete walls that im­prison us in our daily grind. That would ex­plain the resur­gent pop­u­lar­ity of roof deck bars all over the city. We Filipinos are no­to­ri­ous for never stray­ing from our air-con­di­tioned co­coons, but some­how, in the gloam­ing, in the golden hours of dusk, we all find so­lace in the out­doors. Hun­dreds of feet above the busy streets, the car horns be­come muf­fled and the sound of mo­tor­cy­cles be­come dis­tant, and sud­denly, an open air bar be­comes an oa­sis, a respite, a sweet sooth­ing es­cape. Such is the case with Edge, high up on the Dis­cov­ery Primea. And even on a hard day’s night, the cut­ting-edge cock­tails con­cocted by award­win­ning bar­tender Len­non Aguilar, will make you feel al­right.
