June 05, 2008|Jessica Gelt

To celebrate the beginning of the summer picnic season the Club Culinaire of French Cuisine is sponsoring the mother of all picnics this Sunday. The Picnic des Chefs and Wine Tasting offers guests aperitifs, a savory lunch, and a raffle and silent auction. The menu includes delicacies such as leg of lamb and flageolets, ratatouille and wild snails in garlic herb butter. Wines include varietals from Santa Barbara County as well as Paul Young roses from the South of France. There will also be a live band and plenty of games including volleyball and soccer. Griffith Park, 4730 Crystal Springs Drive; tickets: adults $50, kids $20; www.clubculinaire.org . . . It's tea time at the gorgeous Langham Huntington Hotel & Spa in Pasadena. On Tuesday the hotel will celebrate the anniversary of its flagship, which opened in London in 1865, by hosting an elegant afternoon tea that would make the Queen proud. Think high tea at the Langham is beyond your recession-crunched means? Think again! From 2-4 p.m. tea and sandwiches, sweets and scones will be offered for the same price they cost in 1865 -- approximately 15 cents. Information and reservations, (626) 568-3900, www.langhamhotels.com . . . Looking for a taste of Paso Robles? Drop by Eclectic Wine Bar & Grille this Saturday to sample fine wines from Robles' Martin & Weyrich Winery and nibble on a variety of savory appetizers. Price, $18.50, 1-4 p.m., reservations recommended; 5156 Lankershim Blvd., North Hollywood, (818) 760-2233; www.eclecticwinebarand grille.com
