There is a busy weekend ahead, friends. We rounded up what we could – cocktail parties, fundraisers, cooking classes – but there’s more than we could fit into this modest post, so be sure to scroll all the way down for the full calendar!

Get dressed up. Bust out your fanciest dress or finest suit and jump into the Bucks County social scene this week – the parties are springing up all over the place (pun intended, and we aren’t sorry). Start with the Annual Spring Cocktail Party at the Half Moon Inn on Saturday, April 25 from 5 to 8 pm, hosted by the Newtown Historical Society.

The evening of Saturday, April 25 is also the night of the first annual Spring Awakening Farm Dinner to benefit the Flint Hill Farm and Education Center, bringing together food, farm and community. Dinner will be prepared by Chef Michael Brack and Chef Daniel Lieber. Don’t miss out on the delicious menu (which includes Duck Rillettes, Mushroom & Cheddar Hush Puppies, and Bison Marrow Canape); call Kathy at 610.838.2928 to reserve your seats.

AIR uncorkedNot enough fancy for you yet? Make your way to Honey Hollow for the AIR Uncorked Event from 6:30 to 9:30 pm on Saturday, April 25. The event is a wine, beer and food tasting where area wine distributors, local breweries, restaurants and caterers showcase their food, drinks, specialties and signature flavors, all to benefit Bucks AIR, which brings art programs to under-served schools in the area.

Drink beer. McCoole’s Spring Beer Festival is on Saturday, April 25, with two sessions, 12 to 4 pm or 5 to 9 pm. The fun includes live music, great food, craft vendors, and unlimited samples of over 75 unique beers with a beer festival ticket or unlimited samples of premium spirits and wine with a spirits/wine ticket.

Eat breakfast. This week we have two firehouse breakfasts: 8 am-12 pm at Haycock Fire Company and 8 am-1 pm at Lingohocken Fire Company, both on Sunday, April 26.

Learn to cook. One of the great things about living in Bucks County is that in addition to all the fabulous restaurants in the area, there are plenty of opportunities to hone your own skills as a cook. First, travel beyond our borders: the Community School of New Hope Solebury is offering a Thai Cooking Class on Thursday, April 23 from 6:30 to 9 pm, and a Persian Cooking Class from 6:30 to 9 pm on Tuesday, April 28.

If you’d like to learn how to cook healthier meals, you’ll have your chance Wednesday, April 29 from 6:30 to 9 pm with a Low Sodium, High Quality Taste Cooking Class, also brought to you by the Community School of New Hope Solebury.

If you want to spruce up your breakfast routine, head to the Fox & Hound Bed and Breakfast in New Hope on Wednesday, April 29 from 6:30 to 9 pm for a Breakfast at the Inn Cooking Class, where you’ll learn to make some of the Inn’s favorite breakfasts, including crepes and brunch strata.

What about snack time? This week’s cooking classes have that covered too, with a Fruit Leather Class on Tuesday, April 28 from 7 to 8 pm at Resurrection Lutheran Church in Horsham.

Just in case what we’ve mentioned doesn’t light you up, there are, as always, a TON of events on our complete calendar, listed below. Please read on to make sure you don’t miss out!
