Where to enjoy a beverage on a covered patio?

covered outdoor patioLucas emails with a specific outdoor dining/drinking question:

I'm looking for places in Albany where I can enjoy a beverage on a patio; however, because of the inconsistencies of the weather here, I'm looking for places in particular where the patios are covered. What places around town do you suggest?

This reminds us that we really need to update the outdoor dining map. (Like, really.) So your suggestions will help not only Lucas (and others), but also help us update the map.

Got a suggestion? Please share!

Center Square Pub has a nice covered patio and is a nice, friendly neighborhood bar, especially if bartenders Angela or Jess are running the show. They are efficient, friendly, and business oriented (i don't like bartenders who come to work to be on display...lol).

please read the effing post:
"I'm looking for places in Albany..."

Example: the Lionheart.

@Jane Doe,
Please read the post. The AOA editors want to update their map, which is a capital region map. So before you go off on others please make sure you are not the one in the wrong.
I understand that every time someone asks for a place on Pearl St in Albany that serves great Margaritas, @SaratogaLover replies with a great place in Saratoga that has an amazing beer selection... but this isn't that.

Capital City Gastropub on New Scotland! Right down the block from Graney's....and amazing! Outdoor dining and great people watching, not sure if it is "covered" though. I
