Fine dining heads outside

At the Hollywood Bowl, man cannot live on Patina’s lobster salad alone; sometimes he’s in the mood for truffled Pecorino. Variety Weekend sought ways to cart delicacies with (food) safety and style.

The Ice Cream Excursion Basket Wine Lover's Picnic Basket
Steady Sticks
Don’t miss an encore chasing down the ice cream guy. The Ice Cream Excursion Basket has an insulated sleeve that will keep 1.75 quarts of Haagen-Dazs solid through the final act.
Because “picnic” and “roughing it” aren’t synonymous, there’s the Wine Lover’s Picnic Basket. The willow hamper comes with white tablecloth, insulated wine tote, wineglasses, earthenware plates and stainless flatware.
$200 for two, $250 for four
Because we’ve never understood the point of one hand clapping, leave your glass in good hands with Steady Sticks. Stainless steel, they pitch easily into grass or sand.
$30 for one bottle and four glass holders

Leather Travel Bar Laguiole Picnic Set
Make that shaken, not stirred. The Leather Travel Bar’s four shot glasses, two flasks, a shaker, stirrer and every opener imaginable gives new meaning to BYOB.
Its polished olivewood handles and stainless steel blades are pretty enough for a formal dinner, but the Laguiole Picnic Set lets you slice cured meats and uncork Reisling in the great outdoors.
