For those that celebrate Christmas, you know what I mean when I say everyone is in rush mode. There’s a certain joy to the frantic days, because you know when you finally sit down with friends and family it’s all worth it. Take some time to relax and take the kids (or yourself) out this weekend with some of the seasonal events in Bucks County.
1. Big Q BBQ Give-Away:
Fri, Dec. 18, Noon – 2 pm, Big Q BBQ, 1140 Bristol-Oxford Valley Road, Levittown, PA
Have you ever had the “Levittowner?” Here’s your chance. Drew Abruzzese, owner of Big Q BBQ in Levittown, is giving away a few hundred “brisket cheesesteaks” this Friday between noon and 2 pm. The new creation, which Abruzzese has named “The Levittowner,” features tender, sliced smoked brisket, Cheez Whiz and crispy onion straws tucked into an 8-inch Italian People’s Bakery torpedo roll. Better get in line now. They flew out the door last week.
2. Food and Music at Jamison Grill
Fri, Dec. 18, 7 – 10 pm, Jamison Grill at The Bucks Club, 2600 York Rd, Jamison, PA
Every Friday night, The Jamison Grill has live music and entertainment. Each week features a different performer, along with great food and drink options from The Jamison Grill. On Friday, December 18, enjoy the music of Ryan Shubert from 7 – 10 pm. Happy Hour starts before the show from 4 – 6 pm and the specials include $2 domestics, $3.50 imports and crafts, $4 house wine, $2 off Mixed Drinks, and half off assorted appetizers. After Happy Hour, just stick around for the entertainment. According to some reviews, a must-have is the fish and chips, and the french onion soup is pretty delicious as well.
