Happy first day of May! It’s only the beginning of the month, but there’s so much to do and eat (no surprise). In addition to the tasty locals nights, educational food events, and chef cook-off this week, you can look forward to Cinco de Mayo specials and Kentucky Derby fun this weekend!

La Stalla outside

Dining outside. The weather is getting nicer, and that means restaurants are officially opening their outdoor eating areas.

La Stalla, the Newtown Italian restaurant, opened their outside bar this past weekend, and the restaurant has plenty of outside seating for dining too. Take advantage of the good weather when you can!

Where else can you enjoy dining outside? Here’s our list of local waterside restaurants, 11 Great Waterside Restaurants (including 6 that Zagat missed).

Removing bugs and weeds safely. Wondering how to get rid of those pesky weeds and bugs that will be taking over your garden? This Wednesday, May 3, participate in an educational talk and question & answer session Malaika Spencer, owner and farmer of the certified organic Roots to River Farm, presented by the Bucks County Foodshed Alliance.

Spencer is dedicated to building healthy ecosystems at her farm in New Hope, PA. It’s a USDA certified organic farm providing high-quality, nutritious food year-round.
