Try out delicious soups from restaurants all along the river, celebrate Liberty Hall Pizza’s anniversary, and sit back and relax at a local Hawaiian luau.
Soup-a-thon continues.The Rivertown soup-a-thon continues this week. From now until January 29, Winter Festival of Lambertville/New Hope will let you enjoy a $3 cup or $6 bowl of soups at participating restaurants. Try out a classic sweet potato and butternut squash bisque from Martine’s River House, or the Block Island clam chowder at DeAnna’s Restaurant. Other Rivertown restaurants like Havana and Triumph Brewing Company will be a part of the soup-a-thon as well.
Liberty Hall Pizza turns two. The owners of Liberty Hall Pizza in Lambertville — Chris Bryan and Danny Popkin — are celebrating a second year of serving up delicious, unique Neapolitan pizzas to the local community.
Today, Monday January 23, Chris and Danny are hosting a customer appreciation night to say thank you to their neighbors and patrons. From 6 – 8 pm, they will serve complimentary Margherita pizzas and tumblers of Victory draught root beer to the first 200 guests.
Following this, the pizzeria will close from January 30 to February 8 to give their wood-fired oven (and their staff) a much-needed break, so be sure to hop over and grab your slices this week!
