90 Days of Summer: Editors' Picks

Day 44: The Outdoor Gourmet

Forget the pasta salad—picnic like a pro at Como Park with a quick stop at Nelson’s.

Como Park Conservatory
Before you do all that you can at Como Park (swimming! Live music! The Conservatory!) stop at Nelson Cheese & Deli to pack a little something to fuel your busy day. What to stow in your picnic basket? Hearty sandwiches such as the Manhattan with pastrami, a BLT on sourdough, or a Roman with salami on focaccia. We’ll leave the blanket up to you. Como Park, 1100 Hamline Ave. N., St. Paul, stpaul.gov, and Nelson Cheese & Deli, 1562 Como Ave., St. Paul, 651-647-1288, nelsoncheese.net
