The snow has nearly finished melting, which means it's time to put on a light sweater and sunglasses and go catch some rays on Metro Detroit's restaurant patios. A few places around town are setting up the outdoor tables and opening windows.

What's your favorite Detroit-area patio to go for people-watching? Day drinking? Hiding away from the world in a hidden porch paradise? Tell us about the patios you've been dreaming of all winter by leaving a comment below, sending a message to the tipline, or tweeting with the hashtag #DETpatios. We'll compile a map of your best suggestions to celebrate the momentous occasion that is spring.

In the meantime, check out last year's patio map.
