Winter Camping in the City

When we were kids we ate outside at our flagstone patio table using special enamel plates and cups. When we rebuilt our picnic table this summer I immediately started hunting for enamelware to keep the tradition alive. I have a 1950's umbrella and tablecloths and we love to eat meals out there. Our trees and shrubs have grown so high that we actually have privacy from the surrounding tenement buildings. I even sit out there in the winter sun and drink my hot coffee from a thermal mug. Winter ice-skating and camping are my preference, even if it is only in my backyard.
