April 23rd is National Picnic Day, and, believe it or not, you can enjoy quite a delightful picnic when you order sushi or hibachi to-go. Now’s a terrific time for this when you consider the fabulous spring weather we’re enjoying in Sarasota. Here’s a quick note on the fun topic of National Picnic Day along with great ways to commemorate it with our convenient takeout service.
National Picnic Day
So, the word “picnic” has a French origin from the word “pique-nique,” meaning “to pick small things.” That’s why when we have outdoor picnics, they normally involve foods we can pick easily (either with our hands, or perhaps with chopsticks!). It’s also a term that referred to the meal breaks medieval hunting parties would have out in the woods.
In 1801, some aristocrats from London formed what they called a “Pic Nic Society,” involving lots of extravagant eating and plenty of lavish wine. Nowadays, folks enjoy simpler outdoor picnics, usually by carrying food in picnic baskets, assembling it on blankets, and then maybe dozing off in a comfy swing or hammock afterwards.
Let’s look at how you can enjoy a pleasant picnic with your friends with the help of Tsunami Sushi.
