The Spread: July is National Picnic Month


BYOB (B stands for Blanket!) No, you do not need a reason to pack a picnic, but! July just happens to be National Picnic month and who are we to argue? Area restaurants and markets are packing up everything you need - snacks, salads, wine, etc - to help you better enjoy these lazy summer days.
