Valentine’s Day has the potential to be a fantastic opportunity to show your honey that you care about them, or a great breeding ground for a disagreement. Either way, it’s a beautiful thing that there is a special day each year devoted to love. For us at Bucks County Taste, the way to our hearts is through our stomachs, so our advice is to celebrate the holiday by taking advantage of one of the many delicious dinners being served in Bucks County. And for those of you who think the holiday is a bogus attempt for greeting card companies to sell cards and other trinkets, well, even cynics need to eat!
