Dinner and drinks at the airport, even when you don’t have a flight to catch? That might not be as crazy as it sounds.
Sky Azure, a small cocktail and tapas lounge in the new observation gallery at BWI Airport, has potential as a fun lunch or happy hour spot for anyone in the airport area — even if you don’t need to keep an eye on gate assignments.
