Necee Regis for The Boston Globe
Picnics are fun, but if stocking the basket doesn't fit into your schedule, no worries. You can still enjoy the fun of an outdoor dinner on a summer evening at a Pop-Up Picnic. Kendall Square hot spot The Blue Room and food truck Bon Me are collaborating on a four-course fusion menu that includes chicken galantine with slaw, chilled cucumber soup shooters, sandwiches with sweet and spicy Chinese sausage, and forbidden rice pudding. Vegetarian or gluten free choices are available, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org in advance for options. And don't worry about packing the blanket -- it's provided. July 31, 6-9 p.m. Rain or shine. $30, $25 advance. Rings Fountain, Milk and India St., Rose Kennedy Greenway, Boston. http://picnicpopup.brownpapertickets.com/
