Summer brings along a lot of amazing things— beautiful weather, an allure for picnics and a desire to not waste a single second indoors. Lucky for us we have one very special community off the banks of the Bow River that offers great eateries, insane views, and walkable areas to adventure in. Of course, we’re talking about the one and only East Village.
And, EV has found an even greater way to make our summer even more happening. Enter: East Village curated picnic baskets. Teaming up with Sidewalk Citizen, 8 Cakes, King Eddy, CHIX Eggshop, and Connie & John’s Pizza, these iconic EV restos are offering curated picnic baskets all summer long.
Each of the participating eateries offer guests their own custom version of their ultimate picnic basket- click here to see their menus! What you can also expect is a custom branded picnic bag filled with curated East Village specialties from the participating restaurants.
A hearty Connie & John’s pizza with wine and/or lager? King Eddy burgers and brownies? Smooth salmon and egg salad by 8 Cakes? You can take a pick depending on what you’re in the mood for.
The edible goodies come packed in an ‘Eat Village’ cooler bag that’s yours to keep. Plus, it’s easy to carry around as you stroll or bike through the many wonders East Village has to offer.
You can go around admiring the many outdoor masterpieces of local art and architecture. You can walk across the bridge and take in the cityscape views at The Rise on St. Patrick’s Island. You can snag yourself a bench on the RiverWalk, taking in riverside views. And thanks to the East Village picnic basket, you can do all of this while enjoying delicious delights.
Whether you decide to turn tourist for a day in your hometown or spend an afternoon lazing around on a picnic blanket, East Village sure is the place to hit this summer & beyond. And with curated East Village picnic baskets, your summer is guaranteed to be tasty!
