One of America’s favorite holidays is this weekend, and yes, we do consider it a holiday. It’s time for Super Bowl 50! Yet another excuse to gorge on delicious food. Wings, nachos, fried food, beer—you name it. Gearing up to the big game, make sure you stay occupied with some great food events in the area, and don’t forget to pick up your Super Bowl snacks— locally.
1. Beer Tasting
Friday, Feb. 5, 5 pm, The Washington House Restaurant, 24 West Temple Avenue, Sellersville, PA
If you like beer and you’re looking to try something different, come to The Washington House Restaurant for a tasting featuring the New Belgium Brewing Company. New Belgium began operations in a tiny Fort Collins, CO basement in 1991. Today, it’s the third largest craft brewer in the U.S. and produces seven-year round beers.

2. Foodie First Friday
You’ve probably heard about Foodie First Friday in Doylestown by now. And if you haven’t, it’s time for you to check it out. This Friday evening head into Doylestown to celebrate 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. Here are a few restaurants and food shops to try. For a full list of participating restaurants, click here:
- Villa Capri: This is the oldest pizza place in Doylestown. Stop in for a drink, grab a slice of pizza, or try out some of their great appetizers or entrees. My personal fav, their cannoli.
- Sabrosa Taqueria: A passion for cooking started with a great-great aunt, and so, a little place that serves tacos was born. Try a signature taco or make your own. By the way, “sabrosa” means tasty.
- Doc Bakers Farmulations: I stopped in here one time and I immediately felt healthier. This place is great for juice cleanses, vegan/vegetarian diets. And, if you want to start a detox, this is a local place to stop by.
3. Super Bowl Bucks County Style
Let’s kick it off with some great Super Bowl specials, that you can find locally. It’s not a Super Bowl party if you’re just munching on plain Lays and yesterday’s guacamole.
- Hickory Kitchen: Place your order by today, Thursday, February 4, for some of the best wings in town, along with eight house made sauces like Carolina Mustard BBQ, Maple Chipotle BBQ and Cilantro-Lime BBQ.

- Peace Valley Winery: The winery is open from 12 – 5 pm this weekend on Saturday and Sunday, hosting a “super” weekend pre-game event. They will have Super Bowl snacks to sample, and they will show you how to pair each snack with wine (because who says you have to drink beer?). Recipes will also be available and there is a sale on Lazy Dog Hard Cider—10% off from Friday through Sunday.
- The Tubby Olive in Doylestown: The Tubby Olive is having an early Super Bowl party on Saturday, February 6 from 2 – 4 pm. Join guest Chef Joe Urban and sample his chili, truffle popcorn, and other snacks. Easy fixings for the big game!

Also, you can party at the Inn for the big game, with happy hour drink specials, and a buffet during halftime.
