Outdoor Concert Menu 2

Bruschetta for Outdoor Concert Dining from ascrumptiouslife.com

Last summer, I posted a two-part series with  tips and tricks of eating at Outdoor Concerts.  Apparently that’s been a dilemma for many of you, because they have become quite popular posts at a scrumptious life.  The first post  focussed on the logistics and ‘equipment’ of dining al fresco.  The second offered menu ideas.   So I […]
