If you are coming off a long and busy Mother’s Day weekend, take time to slow down this week with a few recurring locals events, like a four-course spring menu, wine dinner, and some of the best wings in Bucks County.
Cookies and Coloring.By now, you probably know that adult coloring is very trendy. If you haven’t, head to the Warminster Township Free Library for an evening of coloring and de-stressing. The library will provide the coloring sheets, colored pencils, cookies, and music. Bring your best coloring skills and a treat if you want to share with the group. No registration is required, and it is a free event.
