Not your Average Lazy Sunday

Forget about nursing that hangover and watching endless episodes of Breaking Bad this Sunday. Instead, spend some quality time with your boo and still take that nap you wanted.

First, call or e-mail Cork Market (at least 24 hours in advance) and order a specialty picnic basket filled with Sunday afternoon goodies.

The sandwich basket ($25, $35 with wine) comes with your choice of two sammies, Dirty Brand chips, honey-mint fruit salad, and freshly-baked cookies.

However nothing says a picnic like fried chicken, and the chicken basket ($40, $55 with wine) includes Cork’s herb marinated buttermilk version (featured in Bon Appetit’s Top 10 Best Places for Fried Chicken). Remember, calories don’t count on the weekends.

Next, stroll on over to Meridian Hill Park to enjoy your picnic and bask in the fall weather. Stick around for the famed drum circle, which starts in the late afternoon.

Join in the festivities by dancing or taking a stab at playing a drum. Or simply sit back, listen, and embrace the sense of community that’s hard to come by in our city.

Living by the “treat yoself” mantra, this date will only cost $55 total since being one with nature is free. Who knew the laziest date could ever be so charming?
