This weekend it was nice enough for fro-yo — a treat that I pretend is “healthier” than ice cream. Once the weather warms, I’m always craving it. How can you resist this sweet treat when there are tons of flavors and toppings to choose from?
This week, whether you are looking for something sweet like fro-yo (see here for some Bucks County ice cream/frozen yogurt spots) or salty like burgers and fries, there’s something for all cravings.
Half price burgers.The historic Pineville Tavern is starting a half price burger deal starting this Monday, April 18, and returning every Monday from 11 am to 10 pm.

Diners can choose from seven different burgers including The King: shredded lettuce, shaved red onion, and Norfolk sauce; Mr. Piggy: aged cheddar, roasted poblano peppers, sriracha mayo and bacon jam; and Lil’ Swiss Bunshine with swiss cheese, sautéed mushrooms, house steak sauce, frizzled onions and roasted garlic aioli.

Four-hour happy hour.Sometimes getting to happy hour between that 4 to 7 pm slot can be tough.

That gives you plenty of time to get to the inn and enjoy some humanely raised, antibiotic and growth hormone free foods, brought to you by local farms.
