It’s easy to list things I don’t like about July: the humidity, the heat, the stickiness, the Phillies place in the National League standings.

But here are the things I treasure about July. The night sounds of crickets and frogs, fireflies, the deep “greenness” everywhere, a bursting herb garden, pastel blue hydrangea blooms, and, of course, the food: blueberries, peaches and in a couple of weeks, tomatoes and corn.

What do you treasure most about July? Email us or feel free to comment below. Enjoy!


Mondays Matter. Every Monday, Bowman’s Tavern in New Hope donates 10% of food sales to a local person or family in need. During July, proceeds will go to Josh Sowden, who was recently diagnosed with lung cancer. Josh’s medical expenses are not all covered and he has been unable to work due to his illness. His wife, Jess, is working a full-time and part-time job to help pull their family through this difficult time.

It’s a no-brainer: enjoy great food and help out a neighbor in need.

Bring your own beverage. The Mansion Inn is temporarily operating as a BYOB establishment. Guests are welcome to bring wine, beer or liquor and the staff will accommodate with mixers accordingly. Enjoy their cool bar and spend time with good friends, good food, and some refreshing drinks!

BYOB Bucks CountyYou can BYOB all over Bucks! Here’s where you’ll find BYOB restaurants near you (just click on the link to see a full list of restaurants in a larger map).

Bee Time

Food for thought book club. This Tuesday, July 11 at 6:15 pm join the Doylestown Food Market as folks discuss Bee Time: Lessons From the Hive, by Mark L. Winston.

Bee Time is about Winston’s time spent studying these creatures, and how humans’ lives would be better off if we took a lesson or two from these buzzy friends. All are welcome to the book club meeting, and more information can be found here.

Movies in the park. Nothing says summertime like a movie in the park. Head to Newtown at the Linton Memorial Park for a movie at 8 pm. The family friendly movies are free, and so is the popcorn! The event is courtesy of the Newtown Borough Recreation Board. 

Before the movie, stop by La Stalla, The Temperance House, or any of these Newtown spots for some dinner. Also check out some local dinner specials in Bucks County and nearby.

Summer food, summer fun. Summer is a time for fresh, light, and colorful foods. We grill, we eat salads, and we stock up on sweet produce. If you need summer cooking and meal tips, check out McCaffrey’s Market this Thursday, July 13. Join Jill Kwasny, MS, RDN, as she presents “Summer Food, Summer Fun,” and you’ll walk away with some quick dishes that you can easily cook.

RSVP to nutritionist@mccaffreys.com or call 215.750.7713 to reserve your spot at the Yardley Market at 10 am. The event will be held in the bistro area and typically runs one hour. You’ll be able to sample something tasty while you’re there!

Friend of a farmer. Caleb’s American Kitchen in Lahaska continues their “Friend of a Farmer” dinners this week with a four-course prix-fixe dinner made with local ingredients. This dinner represents the finest products from local farmers, and you’ll get to try seasonal dishes made from scratch. The cost of the dinner is $50 on Thursday, July 13 and $54 on Friday, July 14, not including tax and gratuity. Reservations for dinners are required. See here for more information.
