As summer nears end, so does the traditional picnicking at the Hollywood Bowl and other outdoor events such as Hollywood Forever and various Concerts in the Park series across the Southland. Tonight, as we pack our picnic basket full of Trader Joe's goodies, we share with you our unthemed Zero 7/Gotan Project supper and ask you what your ultimate picnic is.

The Trader Joe's Zero 7 special:

  • Mixed Greens Salad with Raspberry Dressing lightly dashed with Pepper
  • Multigrain Crackers and Carrots with sides of Animal Rennet-free Brie Cheese, Spicy Hummus & Olive Tapenade
  • Kalamata Olive Bread with pesto, fresh basil, pearl tomatoes & marinated buffalo mozzarella
  • Mango, Blueberry & Raspberry Fruit Salad
  • Shiraz & Bottled Water

What's your preferred Los Angeles outdoor concert meal?
