Things are starting to pick up this week in Bucks County, which means there is plenty to do and plenty to eat. Try out a cooking class or go back in time to 1989 with some special lunch items. You can even learn how to have a healthier new year at a complimentary dinner.
In 1989, a lot of history was made, including the birth of the World Wide Web. In that same year, the Abruzzese family acquired the historic Pineville Tavern, which was originally built along a stagecoach route in 1742, and was a mainstay for hungry and thirsty locals and travelers alike for generations.
As a celebration to commemorate their anniversary, the Tavern will be offering menu items during their lunch hours at 1989 prices for 20 days, starting today, Monday, January 11. Executive Chef Drew Abruzzese will be cooking up items like: Snapper soup for $1.75; half pound cheeseburgers for $3.75; fried chicken & coleslaw for $4.75; pork roll & cheese sandwiches for $3.25; crab cakes, fries & coleslaw for $4.75. Their lunch menu is served Monday through Sunday until 4 pm. The Pineville Tavern is at 1089 Durham Rd (Route 413) in Pineville.
