Bucks Food Calendar: February 25, 2015

Max's Table

This is the last week of February, or for winter-haters like me, the worst month. The last full month of winter will end with a ton to do, so pull out your calendars and get ready to carve out your schedule. On the menu? Bake sales, networking events, dinners, documentaries, fundraisers, parties, and Lahaska’s Restaurant Week. Enjoy!

cinnamon buns - raisin and nuts

Cinnamon Buns. This week is host to the monthly Cinnamon Bun Bake Sale offered up by the Central Bucks Senior Center. Head over Thursday, February 26 or Friday, February 27 between 9 am and 4 pm to pick up some freshly made buns, which come in four flavors: plain, raisin, nuts, or raisin and nuts. You help the seniors by buying the cinnamon buns, they help you by putting delicious, gooey breakfast treats into your stomach. It’s a symbiotic relationship in the best way. Read more about the famed bake sale in our post here: Cinnamon Bun Central.

LocavoreNetworking. This Thursday evening, February 26 from 5 pm to 8 pm, the unofficial “networking event of the year,” the 5th annual Locavore, will take place at Superior Woodcraft in Doylestown. The event is a special addition to the Central Bucks Chamber of Commerce Business Card Exchange, adding tables from local restaurants serving samples of the best that Bucks County has to offer. RSVP at the event’s facebook page.

A documentary. This Thursday, February 26, the Stockton Market in Stockton, NJ will be hosting a special Screening of the Documentary Resistance which covers the history of antibiotic resistance, starting with the mass production of antibiotics 70 years ago and tracking the rise of superbugs into the 21st century.

Dinner. Chef Max Hansen of Max Hansen Catering is now hosting a monthly dinner, which he calls the Max’s Table Dinner Series, at his Carversville General Store.
