The weather wasn’t terrible this week, so I managed to squeeze in a few after-work runs, just before the sun sets. Lately, I’ve really been missing those warm, spring evenings. And, I’m missing those afternoons where you can sit on a restaurant porch and bask in the sun with a drink (iced tea, gin, etc.).
While we wait for spring, let’s stay distracted with these comforting, local events. Stuff your belly with spaghetti, dine with friends, party tavern style, and pick up a winter produce bounty, this weekend in Bucks.
