With the weather bouncing from warm to cold, it is evident that our days of beach lounging and pool sunbathing are coming to an end. If you’re looking to grasp onto one last summer fling, we’ve got the perfect thing for you.

New York City restaurant Abboccato Ristorante  partnered with Citi Bike  to design a snack basket for bike riders going on one last romantic summer picnic. Citi Bike members can purchase a $28 Snack Basket for two, including house-marinated olives, Parmigiano-Reggiano, salami Genovese, breadsticks, a chef’s selection of bruschetta of the day, Napoleon tricolor cookies, and choice of orange or lemon Italian soda.

Conveniently wrapped up in a picnic box for easy transport on the bike rack, this great little treat is a nice addition to an end-of-summer excursion. Orders can be placed by phone or in person at the restaurant.
