After months of chilly rain, wearing one too many layers and all-around gloomy weather, summer in all its glory has finally come to Portland. It’s a time filled with sunny skies, long walks in the park and savoring all the best Portland has to offer, a time for taking a moment to appreciate the finer joys of life.

To celebrate the much-anticipated arrival of summer, Bar Vivant is introducing its set of gourmet Summer Picnic Baskets for two. Packed with a delicious selection of Spanish conservas (gourmet canned goods like anchovies and tuna) with a variety of snacks, linens and a special something to sip on, they’re the perfect way to celebrate the arrival of summer in style.

All you need to do is pre-order 48 hours in advance, and Bar Vivant will prepare your basket filled to the brim with tantalizing goodies. With five different selections to choose from, there’s a basket for just about every occasion. From a more traditional basket like “The Spaniard” to thoughtful, sweeter options like the “First Date” basket amply filled with truffles and champagne, there’s a little something for everyone to enjoy.

You can even customize your own basket, too, if you’d like to fill it up with your choice of tapas, Pix desserts and drinks. All fixed packages are priced at $55, with an $80 deposit for the basket, linens and knives which must be returned within five days.

Feeling hungry yet? Call 971.271.7166 to order your basket, and be sure to enjoy it lazily while soaking up some sun.
