It’s Spring! Join us outside in the Tent, at our new Snack Shacks or indoor!

Plan a Pickett’s Getaway with Burgers, Bar Pies and Toast-Worthy Libations Galore

Indoor/Outdoor Seating Wednesday-Sunday, 4-9PM

It’s never too early to start planning a long weekend – especially when it promises to be as glorious as this one. Just in time for you to take advantage of the first full weekend of full-on spring, Pickett’s is rolling out seriously expanded outdoor dining options. The tent is back, bringing a dining room feel to the great outdoors. The Snack Shacks have a cabana vibe, each with a high-top table that seats four. The patio is backyard dining with a view of the Maplewood CC golf course.

Next week marks the beginning of spring break season for several school districts in the area. If you’re not planning to leave town but game for a flight of fancy, here are some ideas worth raising a glass to.

Spain: Imagine yourself at a mosaic table on a sun splashed terrace overlooking rolling green hills and distant mountain caps. Picture a sweating pitcher, ruby red, with citrus and berries. That’s our sangria, made with Lambrusco, an Italian sparkling red, a reminder that cross-cultural collaboration reaps delicious rewards.

Tuscany and Provence: How to choose from the gorgeous poster children of Italy and France? Our spectacular rosés say “No need.” Start in Tuscany with a glass of the Casanova Della Spinetta – dry, with a floral nose. Hop on over to Provence to enjoy the evocative Lavendette, a classic Provençal rosé for sumptuous sipping all summer long.

Toronto: If your imagination is up for a drive, not a flight, slip over the Northern border and into the Collective Arts, an artisan community devoted to all things brewed and distilled. Contemplate a future as a master brewer in an artists’ commune as you sip their “Life in the Clouds” New England IPA, a refreshing red thread connecting their world and ours.

And finally, if you want to stay local, even in your glass, try the Pickett’s Mule. The Moscow Mule got its name in the 1940s, when vodka was mostly Russian. Our all-American version is made with Tito’s handcrafted vodka and Pickett’s Ginger Beer, a robustly-flavored, all-natural local product. Our seasonal mule adds strawberry and mint to up the refreshment and the summer’s-coming energy.

Hope to see you soon for a little bon voyage!
