Packing The Perfect Picnic

There is no excuse in Los Angeles – weather always permits a picnic and for those exceptionally beautiful days, something grander than a checkerboard park picnic is required. Luckily, it lies just next door at the foot of the Hollywood Hills. A pre-concert picnic at the Hollywood Bowl is a Los Angeles tradition made for idyllic summer days. Local restaurants are all too aware and have created delicious, ready-to-go meals that are far from brown bag lunches. Some, like local favorite and GEARYS neighbor The Cheese Store of Beverly Hills, can create baskets customized to individual tastes for a truly personalized experience. Far from encouraging you to disregard picnic presentation, these prepared baskets allow you to highlight the little things – a touch of woven reed, colorful linens - that will make sure you hit just the right note at your Hollywood Bowl dinner al fresco.
