Just a few tidbits, highlighting some of the great things going on in Bucks County and nearby.
Jamie Hollander Gourmet Foods in New Hope is expecting…The favorite spot for gourmet foods, catering, sandwiches and quality take-out food will be opening a full-service bistro café this spring. I spoke with Kate Conaway, Events Coordinator at Jamie Hollander’s this morning. After expanding and outfitting a prep space in the kitchen, the plan is to replace the high top tables currently in the front of the store with lower tables (due to arrive next week). Change the lighting, some softer paint on the walls, a new menu, and voilá…the new bistro will be open for lunch and dinner Tuesdays through Saturdays by the end of April or beginning of May. Check out their website for more news and for details on their weekly Saturday tastings. They will also be at the Gourmet Getaway this Thursday, March 24, a fundraiser for the Central Bucks Chamber’s Women in Business’ scholarship fund. Jamie Hollander Gourmet Foods is at 415 S. York Rd. (Route 202) in New Hope.
Kudos to the Down to Earth Café, for serving up locally sourced, healthy and delicious food in Perkasie. Well, they do that all the time, but now they’ve gotten some great press coverage from NBC10 TV in Philadelphia. Click here to see the video with Aditi Roy at Let’s Do Lunch on their website.
Is there any better place to live than Bucks County? Where else, I ask you, can you RENT-A-CHICK for Easter? The Happy Farm is doing just that. Some of you may know Tom Colbaugh and Jean Armstrong Nick for their delicious free range eggs and pastured poultry. But did you know you could rent some cute chicks from them for Easter – and then return them to a pleasant, pastured, free-range life after the holiday? Rent two chicks for two weeks for just $35. (Additional chicks $5 each). The price includes: Two natural-colored (no pink or blue) chicks, food, bedding, box and instructions. You provide simple care and supervision. Pick up is at Happy Farm in Kintersville on April 22 (late afternoon/evening) or April 23 (afternoon). Return them two weeks later at the same location. Plan to take a walk around the farm and visit all the other animals when you visit too. Contact them via their Facebook page or drop a check for $20 in the mail to confirm your reservation. Send it to Happy Farm, 1911 Gallows Hill Rd., Kintnersville, PA 18930.
