If…time and money were not a factor, this is how I’d spend my weekend in Bucks County and nearby.
I’d drop by the Stockton Market Friday evening for Sushi Night, created by Metropolitan Seafood (reservations required: 908.840.4332 by Thursday 1/19). Then pop over to the Centre Bridge Inn for a cocktail and some fine singing by Barbara Trent. Or maybe attend the 3rd Annual Burns Dinner at the Black Bass Hotel, in honor of the Scottish poet Robert Burns. There’s sure to be lots of good scotch and most assuredly haggis.
Saturday morning would find us at Vera’s Country Cafe in Ottsville, one of our favorite breakfast places. Afterwards we’d swing over to the Ottsville Winter Farmers’ Market at Linden Hill Gardens, right on Route 611. Then over to Peddler’s Village and the Chaddsford Winery’s Tasting Room for a “class” on pairing wine and cheese. And if we want to continue in that vein, maybe we’d drop by Hopewell Valley Vineyards later in the day for their Saturday Wine and Music.
Sunday…I think we’d rest a bit by the fire after cooking up some Bigos stew – a hearty concoction of meats, sauerkraut, root vegetables and beer. It takes 4-5 hours in the oven and makes the house smell divine. See our previous post about Bigos and how to make it here.
On the horizon. The Lambertville-New Hope Winter Festival gets into full swing next weekend beginning with the Taste of Winter Fest at the Inn at Lambertville Station on Thursday, January 26 with food from local restaurants, wineries and breweries. The annual Beef n’ Brew takes place on Saturday, January 28 at the Triumph Brewery. Advance tickets for both are encouraged and can be bought online here.
