While Mark and I are busy with family this weekend (sister in from England, brother in from California) we will unfortunately be missing some great local stuff happening. Check this out…
The 7th Annual “A Taste of Lambertville” is taking place tonight at the Lambertville Rescue Squad Banquet Hall. Come taste signature dishes from the great restaurants of Lambertville. Wine and beer and music by The Lifters will liven things up, and a silent auction of unique items will help you check off some gifts for the holidays. The event takes place from 6 – 9 pm at 70 Alexander Ave. in Lambertville, NJ. Entrance fee is $45 per person.
Wine and music at Crossing Vineyards – and our own Bucks County Nouveau. Why buy a Beaujolais Nouveau (which just arrived in stores yesterday) from France when you can drink a local version? Crossing Vineyards 2009 Le Nouveau is now available. Taste this young wine (meant to be consumed early) this weekend at Crossing’s 2009 Nouveau Festival. Also at the vineyard tonight from 8 – 10 pm, All That Jazz featuring The Eric Mintel Quartet.
Farmers markets…one last time – and a first time. The Doylestown Farmers’ Market and Wrightstown Farmers’ Market will be celebrating their last market of the season this Saturday morning, and the Saucon Valley Farmers’ Market in Hellertown will be open on Sunday. Many of the markets, however, will be doing monthly winter markets. I’ll do a post on that soon, so you can mark your calendars.
Starting next weekend, the Stockton Indoor Farmers’ Market will open in the old Errico’s Market on Bridge Street (next to Phillips Fine Wines). The market is Saturdays 9 am – 3 pm and Sundays 10 am to 3 pm. Fresh fish, poultry, cheese, breads, baked goods, farm fresh eggs, vegetables, flowers, and oWow Cow Ice Cream will all be available.
While you’re in Stockton, stop in at the Stockton Fire Company Pasta and Meatball Dinner on Saturday (November 21) from 5 – 8 pm. Eat in or take out is $10 for adults, $5 for kids (under 5 y.o. is free). Phillips Fine Wines is offering a deal on a bottle of wine to go with the Italian dinner – a Monte Degli Angeli Sangiovese for $6.20 (“spicy notes giving way to blueberry and cedar, lively on the palate and firm on the finish”).
Look for upcoming posts on what to serve – locally – for Thanksgiving, complete with recipes and suggested local wines. Have a beautiful weekend!
