The crocuses are popping up, the forsythia are starting to burst and the daffodils are getting ready . It can only mean one thing. Saint Patrick’s Day is approaching!
Those who are truly Irish tell me that yes, it is a great day to drink. More importantly, it’s about getting together with family and taking a minute to appreciate one’s heritage. Raise a glass because there are plenty ways to celebrate being Irish in Bucks County!
And if you’re not into celebrating St Pat’s Day, there’s plenty more going on to eat and drink on both sides of the river.

One is a white pie with Italian sausage, broccoli rabe, and fresh garlic; and a smoked salmon pizza with onions, capers and cream cheese.
