If you are dreading going back to work this Monday, remember that this week is Cinco de Mayo. That means there will be plenty of ways to celebrate, drink, and eat good food. There are also new restaurant specials available, and a few other good foodie events in Bucks County this week.
Happening “Happitizers.” The Pineville Tavern‘s new “Happitizer” program is starting this Monday, May 2.

Mondays: Ravioli & Gravy Tuesdays: Fried Chicken Wings Wednesdays: Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes Thursdays: Porchetta Sandwiches Fridays: Million Dollar Bacon
Eating wild. Want to learn a thing or two about eating healthy “in the wild?” This Tuesday, May 3 the Bucks County Foodshed Alliance and the Bucks Chapter of Buy Fresh Buy Local presents an educational talk by forager and food preserver Susan Pierson, who is taking a look at food activist Jo Robinson’s popular book, Eating on the Wild Side: The Missing Link to Optimal Health. The presentation starts at 7 pm and ends at 8:30 pm at the Bucks County Free Library in Doylestown. Registration is not required, no charge, and donations will be accepted.
“Not only are small whiskey cocktails paired with each course, I’ve incorporated the spirits into the production of all of the dishes in a variety of ways,” said Heckman.

The Stockton Inn’s seasonal a-la-carte menu is also available Wednesdays through Saturdays 5 – 9 pm, and Sundays 3 – 8 pm. Make reservations by visiting their website, or call 609.397.1250.
