Wow! It’s almost February. Hard to tell with the lack of real winter weather we’ve had. Last week, Bucks County Taste visited a farm in Tinicum that produces maple syrup, rare here in Bucks County. But if we don’t get some cold nights, there won’t be any sap running. Yet another effect of global warming.
But don’t let the winter blues get to you. Check out some restaurant specials happening this week in Bucks County and nearby. Enjoy a warm supper or pick up a croissant sandwich to-go.

The price includes a welcome cocktail, hors d’oeuvres, three-course dinner, and a group reading with Tabbitas. Price does not include alcohol, tax and gratuity. Stay packages are available too.
