What to Bring For Your Shakespearean Picnic in the Park

Spring scenery Shelburne Museum Shelburne, Vermont

Planning to see Julius Caesar outdoors at the Shelburne Museum tonight or this weekend? Don’t forget to bring your picnic along! The shows start at 6pm, but the lawn opens at 5pm, so feel free to set up a blanket, some chairs, or even have a picnic! We’ve got some Shakespearian inspired ideas for you.

Like most people, when we think about Shakespeare we think about wine. And not just any wine, a nice bottle of Merlot. Merlot is a sweet and fruity wine that is easy to sip on while snacking on some other goodies.

Why not pair that wine with some delectable cheese and crackers? We recommend brie and rosemary crackers to add some sophistication to your picnic experience. Since we are trying to hit all of the food groups, we can’t forget about the fruit! (and no, wine does not count as a fruit). We suggest freezing some grapes to bring along as a tasty and refreshing snack. They can also double as ice cubes for wine!

Now for the meat and bones of the picnic. Bring along some chicken wings! And don’t just settle for any ol’ chicken wings, we recommend trying the balsamic glazed chicken wings recipe from Robert Irvine. Or stop by the famous Harrington’s on Shelburne Road across from the museum to pick up some yummy sandwiches and treats. https://www.harringtonham.com/service/stores.cfm                                                                                     
We hope you’ll join us at the Shelburne Museum this Thursday through Saturday for an unforgettable night of Shakespeare!
