Eating outside is a classic way to enjoy the summer weather

Life Is A Picnic

The ingredients for a wonderful summer include Frisbees, green grass, fireworks and, most definitely, picnics. Ingredients for a good picnic vary, but always start with a great picnic basket. The Canterbury and the Barrel from Picnic Time are the Ferrari of picnic baskets. They come fully loaded with fabric-lined interiors, plates, two wine glasses, a cutting board and plenty of other goodies. Impress your friends! Rains, 218 East Ojai Ave., Ojai.

On Fire

No summer is complete without a really great barbecue. Ribs, chicken, burgers, hot dogs, corn on the cob — it all tastes better when it’s been cooked outside, over an open flame or at least something that resembles an open flame. This Viking Ultra Premium 53" portable gas grill features a high temperature Tru-sear™ infrared burner, a rear rotisserie burner, smoke box, storage drawers and an oven. Stuart's Barbecue & Fireplace Design Center, 1700 East Ventura Blvd., Suite D, Oxnard. For more information, call 485-0535 or visit
