It’s picnic weather. As temperatures creep up towards the low 80’s with brilliant sun and gentle breezes, we’re all itching to get outside.
This weekend you can partake in a Southern basket-style picnic complete with fried chicken prepared by chefs Anne Quatrano and Todd Immel (Floataway Cafe). The meal will include a selection of beer and wine to accompany the picnic fare.
The event, which takes place at the Nickel Bottom Community Garden just behind the Floataway community, will double as an adult field day with games like bocce ball, croquet and badminton. During the afternoon, guests will also enjoy tours and an exclusive look at the garden’s transformation, live music and a gift raffle with prizes from The Cook’s Warehouse, Farmer D. Organics and more.
Proceeds from this event, called BUDS, benefit the Nickel Bottom Community Garden. Funds will be used to build raised garden beds, fencing and an outdoor entertainment space.
1-3 p.m. Sunday, May 19. Nickel Bottom Community Garden. Enter by walking through Floataway Cafe’s courtyard. Purchase tickets online. $99
