Picnic Planning

As the snow falls in Chicago, I find myself planning my weekend picnic thanks to the Spring-like weather her in San Francisco. While I do feel bad for my friends and family back home; it is going to be too nice not to get out and enjoy it. So why not do it properly with a picnic?

A few years ago, I purchased from Crate and Barrel their table-in-a-bag, and it has become a staple for my summer months. I just did a quick search online, and you can find other retailers selling it from around $30 to $60.

Now why do I love this silly contraption? It is light and so easy to set up. If my mother can set it up, anyone can set it up. The legs simply screw into the bottom of the table, and you are ready to go. 

Anyone have any other picnic suggestions for this weekend? Wines, foods, equipment, good spots?
