Hebrew National Better-Than-A-Picnic PICNIC
This past weekend I co-hosted a Hebrew National Better-Than-A-Picnic PICNIC (yes, all caps– it was deserved) in NYC. Hebrew National is starting the BBQ season off by hosting open-to-the-public picnics throughout the country. And if the NYC picnic is any indication, hoo-boy the others are going to be awesome (see the complete list below), so check to see if they’ll be one in your town.
At the NYC picnic, all day long kids’ softball teams, families large and small and teams of police officers would stop by to get some free hot dogs. And these weren’t just any hot dogs, these were by Hebrew National the company with perhaps the best tagline of all time– “We answer to a higher authority”– a cheeky reference to its kosher standards. Me? I ate hot dogs, but mainly plotted how I could hijack that tricked-out Airstream trailer.
Actress Cheryl Hines was on hand to kick-off the festivities and participate in a community-service project benefiting The Magic Summer Lunch Box and The Food Bank For New York. We decorated canvas lunch bags that will be given to local kids for their summer lunches.
See, here’s photographic evidence that I was there. I even matched my scarf to HN’s colors (I totally did not plan that!).
The internet can be so awesome. It lets you make friends online so that you can have more fun offline.
