Before the dog days of August officially descend, enjoy the last day of July (Wednesday, July 31) with a picnic pop-up event. Lounge on a blanket at the Rings Fountain on the Rose F. Kennedy Greenway, supping on a four-course picnic prepared by The Blue Room and its Kendall Square neighbor, Bon Me. The culinary duo will prepare a picnic out of the newest Bon Me Truck and offer it up, complete with a blanket, rain or shine. The menu includes 1970’s chicken galantine with modern farm slaw (The Blue Room);
chilled cucumber soup (Bon Me); Bon Me sandwich with sweet and spicy Chinese sausage; and forbidden rice pudding (The Blue Room). Gluten-free and vegetarian options are available if requested in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org (6-9 PM; $25 per person in advance; $30 at the event; click here to buy tickets; 617-494-9034).
