Is anyone else still full from all of the Fastnacht/Mardi Gras festivities? I know I am, but that’s not going to stop me from eating something new and tasty this weekend.

3. Foodie First Friday
Friday, March 3, 5 – 9 pm, Downtown Doylestown, PA
We all slip into a Friday routine, and while the usual pizza-Friday or Chinese take-out night is tasty, it can be a bit boring. This Friday, try out a different restaurant or eatery in Doylestown since it’s Foodie First Friday, a monthly event that celebrates culture, community and cuisine. Many of the restaurants have specials for the celebration, so try a restaurant you’ve never been to, or stop by your usual place and enjoy your favorites.

6. Maple Syrup: From Tap to Bottle
Saturday, March 4, 11 am, Winfield Farm, 476 Headquarters Road, Erwinna, PA
We don’t get a lot of locally made maple syrup in Bucks County on account of us being a little far south. But Chris and Elizabeth Wampole (and friends) don’t let that stop them. Come to their sugar shack this Saturday to see how maple syrup is made. The event is sponsored by the Tinicum Conservancy, a land trust that helped create a conservation easement for the 100-acre Winfield Farm property.
Follow GPS directions to 476 Headquarters Road, Erwinna, PA 18920. However, there is no sign for the farm, so look for the sugar shack. You’ll also be able to purchase the Sundale Creek Maple Syrup. Can’t make it but want to buy some maple syrup? Contact Chris Wampole at SUNDALECREEK1@gmail.com.
Learn more about Sundale Creek Maple Syrup and maple sugaring in our post this week, Bucks County maple syrup!
