The run-of-the-mill "company barbecue in the park" is falling out of favor. Today, companies are getting creative with their picnic venues and entertainment. They are most concerned with their employees getting out of the office and having a great experience, in addition to the barbecue or picnic. We found an excellent article from our friends at Vibrant Table, that gives examples of just how easy it can be for companies to create these new, "urban" barbecues and picnics. Check it out here! With late summer temperatures in Portland this week hovering in the 90s, it's never too late to show your team some appreciation. Call your Portland event planner today if you're curious about putting together your own urban picnic.
