Can you believe that it’s the end of August already? Needless to say, the warm days of summer are winding down. And that’s exactly why we recommend taking full advantage of the ability to dine outdoors while you still can.
But this time, we’re not talking about the Upper West Side’s fabulous sidewalk cafes. Instead, we urge you to get real and picnic right in Central Park with the help of these handy picnic-friendly services:
UPicnic is a great new business that provides free picnic drop-off and pick-up to and from your prime Central Park spot. Simply place your order two days in advance via the site, and voila! Your picnic is served. Plus UPicnic even provides to option to amp up your picnic with games (think: horseshoes and Uno), portable chargers, Bluetooth speakers, sunscreen, and more.
Perfect Picnic NYC
With grab-and-go picnics for up to four people starting at $10, and deluxe picnic experiences that include set-up and clean-up for upwards of 25 people, Perfect Picnic NYC has thought of it all. Visit their user-friendly site to place your order and plan for delivery (for a reasonable location-based fee).
If you’re more of a spontaneous picnic-er, UberEATS is your best answer. The food delivery service from the car service you know and love also offers food delivery from over 100 restaurants. So even mid-stroll, you can plop down in the park, sign onto the app, and await your meal’s arrival.
How New York is that?
