Want to picnic in Stanley Park with virtually no preparation? Picnix sells the entire experience, including the food and the rental of gear such as a picnic blanket, pillows, and a sun umbrella.
Customers book a date and time (lunch or dinner) through the Picnix website and then pick up the goods, which are packed into a wooden wagon, in the park. The wagon transforms into a table for two and comes with reusable dishes and linens. (You return the whole unit when you’re done.)
The menu incorporates locally sourced meat and produce; choices include antipasto, cheese, and charcuterie platters along with salads and cheesecake.
At $80 for two people, the package costs considerably more than packing your own sammies—but no waxed paper is required.
