Is there a specific recipe you make when you invite friends and family to the tent? Or do you stop beforehand at a local spot for takeout? Do you bring your favorite beverage or supplement your picnic with a drink from the HVSF café? Let me know your favorite rituals. We’re starting things off by rounding up some of the picnic must-haves from our staff.
Read some traditions from our HVSF Staff.
Scotty Arnold, Manager of Sales and Membership:
My picnic picks — cheese and bread from Cold Spring Cheese Shop, and a big bottle of something strong!
Davis McCallum, Artistic Director:
I love to get a Gogo Pop (usually The Bear, inspired by THE WINTER’S TALE, which features chamomile tea and honey) at intermission and then lurk around the area between the concession tent and the theater to try to eavesdrop on people’s conversations about the show. 🙂
Kate Liberman, Managing Director:
My favorite thing is to get a GoGo Pop before the show (my favorite is The Puck a green avocado/Kiwi/coconut/lime pop) and walk around the great lawn checking out everyone else’s AMAZING picnics and saying hi to our back stage and wardrobe crew.
