The Goddess and Grocer Offers New Picnics In July

2013_07_07_picnic.jpg July is National Picnic Month, so to celebrate, The Goddess and Grocer is offering "Pack a Picnic," which lets you put together a meal in a black and white picnic box to take on summer outings.

You can choose any items you want, like the balsamic chicken sandwich, with roasted piquillo peppers, fresh mozzarella, pesto mayo, and mixed greens on ciabatta bread; the chicken noodle satay, with marinated chicken, Asian noodles, cabbage, peppers, carrots, pea pods, cilantro and peanut-lime dressing; giant cookies or cupcakes.

The picnics cost $2 on top of your items, and if you bring the box back to reuse, you'll get 10% off your next to-go order.

The Goddess and Grocer has locations in the Gold Coast at 25 E. Delaware Pl., Bucktown at 1646 N. Damen Ave., on Elston at 2222 N. Elston Ave., and on Larrabee at 901 N. Larrabee St.
