Dining Al Fresco

The phrase al fresco is borrowed from Italian for "in the cool [air]", but is not used in that language to refer to dining outside. Instead, Italians use the phrases fuori or all'aperto. In Italian, the expression al fresco usually refers to spending time in jail. The Spanish meaning of al fresco is similar to Italian, and Spaniards use fuera or al aire libre to refer to dining.[relevant? ]
Literally in the proverbial cooler.

Now that you mention it, the baggie's probably full of small & yappy apartment-dweller dog waste.

I'll tell you this: 45 yrs. ago Florentine pizza had little resemblance beyond theory to what these United Snakes & Canada know (or knew then) as pizza.
