Killer Picnics for Brooklyn Beaches at Brighton Bazaar

Who can argue with bacon-wrapped bone-in chicken parts as perfect picnic fare?

The first picnic of the spring season is pending. I recommend the Brooklyn beaches, as laid-back as they ever get, including plenty of places to hunker down and dine with a surreptitious bottle of wine, with sand or without. Located in Brighton Beach right off of Coney Island Avenue, midway between Coney Island Beach and Manhattan Beach, Brighton Bazaar is a Russian supermarket with just about the best carryout you've ever seen.
