Bucks Food Calendar: December 10, 2014

Wine-Chocolate

Although the holiday theme has admittedly taken over the food events of Bucks County, the variety of things to do hasn’t been compromised. This week, Santa will be making stops all over the place (he’s good like that), including brunch for the kids and fancy wine dinners for the adults.
