5 Things You Gotta Do in Bucks County This Weekend (Dec 29-Jan 1)

It’s almost time to ring in 2018. What do you think of when you remember the new year is approaching? Champagne toasts at midnight? Sparklers and firecrackers? A big smooch with your loved one when the clock strikes 12 o’clock?

Don’t forget about two very important parts to a perfect New Year’s Eve celebration: food and drinks. Whether you want to sip bubbly all night long or keep it simple with some soda and spirits, there’s something for everyone this year. And don’t forget brunch on New Year’s Day!

Do you need a last-minute (but thoughtful) gift for someone? Don’t want to walk in empty-handed to
your friend’s New Year’s bash?
