Inexpensive picnic baskets?

I'm going to the Bowl this Friday but don't want to spend a lot of money. Where can I get a nice picnic/box type of thing? Any food type is fine. Geography is flexible too (we're all comign from different areas anyway!). Thank you ...

  1. If I go to the Bowl with a group and am on a budget, I'll just stop at a supermarket and buy a bunch of sliced meats, cheese, crackers, and fruit. Occasionally I'll splurge on stuffed grape leaves, potato salad, or some other prepared deli food.

    I'd also bring along a sandwich - either a sub from Bay Cities Deli if Santa Monica isn't too out of the way for me, or I'll go to the Roman's on Sunset which is great for all kinds of sandwiches and it's close to the Bowl.
