Casual picnickers can typically pile the picnic essentials in a reusable grocery bag or a cheap old backpack, but true picnic connoisseurs know that for a truly successful outdoor meal on the ground, you need not only the essentials, but also the over-the-top accessories.
An elaborate picnic basket backpack from Scuddles serves any and every picnic outing function. Measuring 12 by 12 by 15 inches and weighing 3 pounds, the backpack includes reusable items for picnics now and in the future. The pack wears comfortably on the shoulders with adjustable straps, and unzipping the front compartment reveals all the utensils you’ll need for a picnic in neatly arranged slots and compartments.
Ideal for groups of four, the pack is equipped with four plates, four anti-shatter acrylic wine “glasses,” full cutlery for four (forks, spoons and knives), salt and pepper shakers, washable napkins, a bottle opener, a cutting board and a cheese knife for those high-class picnics complete with a wine tasting.
The backpack also features an insulated food pack that measures 11 by 7 by 14 inches and keeps the contents cold for six to eight hours.
Two storage pockets (one on each side of the backpack, one is detachable) can store a wine or other beverage bottle and a rolled-up picnic blanket, the latter of which comes with the backpack.
The Scuddles picnic basket backpack can be purchased on Amazon.com for around $55.

Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
Barcelona has seen a recent influx of craft cocktails bars within the past five years or so, and Sant Antoni seems to be one of the city’s epicenters of such swanky watering holes. Amid the crisscross streets, organic grocery stores and the soon-to-open, recently renovated Sant Antoni market is Bitter, an inconspicuous cocktail bar where there’s more than meets the eye.
