Bucks Food Calendar: Dec 4, 2017

I’m starting to fall into the winter slump. Venturing outdoors seems like a feat equivalent to climbing Mount Everest. A quick walk to the mailbox on a chilly December morning is nothing like a 29,000+ ft. mountain climb, but it sure does feel like it when you’re tucked away all day in the toasty comforts of your home.

Let’s leave our warm quarters behind and head into town for fun happy hour specials, BBQ for a good cause, and some holiday shopping. For those who can’t bear to leave the house, there are some activities for you, too.

Dine & Donate at More Than Q

‘Tis the season of giving, and why not give back when there is great food involved?

Kick off the season of giving by joining RobustWealth and More Than Q on Tuesday, December 5 from 5:30 – 8 pm for a Dine & Donate event sponsoring Toys for Tots.

A portion of the evening’s proceeds will be matched by RobustWealth and donated to the organization. They will also be collecting new, unwrapped toys for children this holiday season. Bring your friends and family to celebrate while enjoying great BBQ. More information can be found here.

Did you know in Bucks County, 65,000 residents are food insecure? Since it is the season of giving, learn more about the faces of hunger in Bucks County and consider giving back to those that need access to healthy, local food.

Traditional Fudge – The Easy Way 

Fudge - Homemade

Stock up on the holiday baking essentials, like organic sweetened condensed milk and chocolate hazelnut spread. It makes for easy chocolate hazelnut fudge, so even those friends in the office who swore they would be good (and not gorge on chocolate-y treats) won’t be able to resist.

Get the full recipe for this easy no-fuss fudge from guest blogger Kelly Madey here.

Making Spirits Bright Demonstration

Holiday Cocktails

Add a little extra something to your holidays with a cocktail and entertaining workshop.

The workshop includes three holiday entertaining demonstrations with tips to create your own sparkler bar, make your own signature HO Ho ho hostess gift and a crafted holiday cocktail to keep you on Santa’s naughty list.

Samplings will accompany each demonstration, taught by Kimberly Cambra. The event will be followed an exclusive private shopping experience with 10% discount for all attendees.

Pre-Registration is required and can be done online at altomontes.com/events. Tickets are $15 per person.

Thirsty (and Hungry) Thursdays in Bucks County

We’d argue that Thursday is one of the best days of the week. The week is not yet over, but Friday is right around the corner. Plus, there are tons of happy hour specials and food specials happening all around Bucks County and into NJ/Hunterdon County. Check out a few of these great deals we’ve gathered below:

  • Beer and Burger Night at New Hope Winery: Starting at 4 pm, all night every Thursday, $10 Burgers and rotating $3 Draft Beers.
  • Thursday Night Comfort Food at the Hattery Stove & Still: Three-course meals for $20 every Thursday, plus buck-a-shuck oysters a la carte.
  • Happy Hour Raw Bar at DeAnna’s: Snack on $1 clams, oysters and shrimp at DeAnna’s in Lambertville, NJ.
  • Rising Sun Inn Happy Hour: Enjoy $1 off all drinks in the tavern, and come back on Friday for free appetizers.
