So there’s a rumor going around. Something about a big snowstorm. Let’s hope it’s not as bad as the reports seem because there are some great events going on this weekend. But if you do want to venture out, check the websites or call before. Stay warm and safe.
1. 7th Annual Burns Night
Friday, Jan. 22, 6:30 – 10:30 pm, Black Bass Hotel Restaurant, 3774 River Rd, Lumberville, PA
This is a true evening of authentic “revelry and debauchery.” Head to the Black Bass Hotel Restaurant for a traditional “Burns Supper” to celebrate the life of Scotland’s national poet Robert Burns. A piper will pipe you in, the haggis will be treated with respect, and there will be a four course meal including wine, beer, whisky, and port. Guests will enjoy toasts, including, “Toast to the Lassies,” which is given by the men and a witty reply given by the women. Highland dress optional! The dinner is $125 per person, including liquor, tax and service. Call 215.297.9260 to get more information and to reserve your spot.

3. Dinner with Friends
Sunday, Jan. 24, 5:30 pm, Bux-Mont Christian Church, 400 Jacksonville Rd., Ivyland, PA
Dinner with Friends is a Bucks-Mont ministry that offers a hot, hearty meal to the community once a month. This service is free of charge, and it occurs every fourth Sunday of the month. The ministry looks forward to preparing* a meal and serving it out of the church’s kitchen on Jacksonville Road in Ivyland, PA. This Sunday, January 24, the dinner will be pork loin and gravy, with mashed potatoes, sauerkraut, corn, rolls, assorted drinks, and brownies/cookies and ice cream.
*Besides having guests to come and eat, they also need a team each month to help prepare, serve and cleanup. If interested, please add your name to a sign-up form in the lobby of the church or contact the church office via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Volunteers get a meal too!
4. Cook up some warm food
This weekend, Your kitchen, Bucks County, PA
Okay, so this is not technically an event. But since it looks like the weather outside will be frightful, why not hunker down and make some warming food? Here’s a few of our favorite winter recipes, including Blizzard Stew.
Have a great weekend!
