Keep Calm and Carry OnLet’s say you don’t go away in July. As the weather gets hot and humid, and the roads seem empty, it’s easy to feel like nothing is happening.  Ah, but there is plenty going on in Bucks and nearby. Here’s some ideas of what you can get out and do this week.

Wednesday. Tonight, the United German Hungarians Club in Bensalem holds their monthly Schnitzel Night from 5:30 pm until 7:30 pm (usually on the first Wednesday of the month but due to the holiday last week, they moved  it to this week.) Or check out the  Custom Tea Blending Class at the Tubby Olive in Doylestown at 6 pm tonight.

Oysters on the half shell

Thursday. There are few things I enjoy more in this kind of weather than a half-dozen oysters accompanied by a cold, dry martini. On Thursdays, Deanna’s in Lambertville fills this need with their Happy Hour Raw Bar from 4:30 to 6:30 pm; shrimp, oysters and clams a buck each (also on Friday evenings). Also on Thursdays, the Freight House in Doylestown has a Happy Hour Dollar Oysters night. And don’t miss the Clam Bake at the Logan Inn every Thursday too.

Friday. Start off the weekend with some adult beverages at these events:

bluegrass and blueberries peddler's village_logo

The Weekend. Love blueberries? Love bluegrass music? You’re in luck. This weekend, Peddler’s Village hosts their annual Bluegrass & Blueberries Festival on Saturday and Sunday. At Fisher’s Tudor House in Bensalem, you can dine and sleuth at the same time at a Murder Mystery Dinner taking place Saturday eveningOn Sunday, enjoy a Summer Pig Roast at Sand Castle Winery in Erwinna or a firehouse breakfast at the Upper Black Eddy Fire Co. on Sunday morning.

Monday. It’s Burger Night at the Wycombe Publick House in Wycombe with their delicious burgers $2 off. The Continental Tavern in Yardley also offers their great burgers for half-off on Monday nights.

Lobster night_PVT

Tuesday. Who needs to go to Maine when every Tuesday night it’s Lobster Night at the Pineville Tavern and the Buck Hotel? The Pineville is offering a 1 ½ lb lobster with two sides and soup or salad for $25. At the Buck Hotel you can get a 1 lb, 1½ or 2½ lb (!!) lobster with soup or salad after 5 pm. The Buck also has a Seafood Buffet on Monday nights with an all-you-can-eat raw bar, carving station, hot buffet, pasta and dessert for $29.95.

Coming up… Enjoy a Farm to Table Gala at the Myerov Family Farm in Perkasie next Wednesday, July 16. It will feature a vegetarian tapas menu crafted by local chef Cody Garber created with fresh fruits and vegetables grown at Myerov and other local farms. Folk artists Yuri and Caleb Gohen will provide the music. Click here for tickets.

Also on next Wednesday, learn more about wines from down under at the Australia & New Zealand Wine Dinner at the Vintage Grille in Fountainville. Details on their website.
