Picnic like a Pro

An exclusive outdoor feast at Honey Butter Fried Chicken

Grand plans for an epic picnic often lead to the disappointing reality of soggy sandwiches, condiment spills and an infiltration of ants.

Ditch the basket and leave your outdoor dining to the pros.

Head to Honey Butter Fried Chicken on Tuesday, June 10, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., when Tasting Table will be hosting a backyard feast ($30 per person; click here to buy tickets).

Grab a seat on one of the wooden benches and dig in. No need to fight over drumsticks–there's an unlimited supply of fried goodness.

Hungry for more details? Here's a peek at the menu:

• Fried chicken with honey butter and corn muffins

• Kale and cabbage slaw with cumin yogurt dressing

• Creamed corn with Thai green curry

• Sweet potato salad with lime and cilantro

• Chocolate toffee cookies

Because no picnic is complete without proper refreshments, reach for bottomless chalices of Belgian beer and crisp cider.

Feel free to leave that checkered blanket at home.
