• 7 Picnic-Perfect Chicago Shops with Everything You Need

    As we approach September, it may seem as if summer in Chicago is winding down, but we’re not done with it yet. One of the best ways to prove it? By packing up a picture-worthy picnic and sprawling out under the sun, luxuriating in the season that we await all year long.

    Thankfully, our fine city offers plenty of ways to do just that, whether it’s a lazy afternoon at the park or a dynamic evening of twilight tunes (we’re looking at you, Pritzker Pavilion and Ravinia Festival — whose late-summer programming, might we add, only seems to be revving up with acts such as Ms. Lauryn Hill, Andrew Bird and John Legend in September).

    From a sandwich haven in Humboldt Park to a beloved bakery in Andersonville, here are the best bets for packing the perfect picnic, listed alphabetically.
