Bucks Food Calendar: December 17, 2014

In a few more days, we’ll reach the Winter Solstice (December 21), after which, the days will be getting longer, not shorter! That’s cause for celebration, unless you hate sunlight. There are plenty of festivities this week, which spans the length of Hanukkah and precedes Christmas Eve and Christmas. Head to one of the many community celebrations, and take your pick of firehouse breakfasts this Sunday. Happy holidays!

Hanukkah. At 6 pm every night this week until December 23, the New Hope Free Press is sponsoring a Community Menorah Lighting on the Delaware at the foot of the free bridge between New Hope and Lambertville (right in the center of town).

Tonight, Wednesday, December 17, the Hanukkah Songfest Celebration will take place starting at 7 pm at the corner of State and Hamilton Streets in Doylestown. The event will be hosted by Rabbi Mitchell Delcau of Temple Judea of Bucks County and the Live at Judea Band. Sing along, grab a “goodie bag” of dreidel and gelt, and watch the lighting of a handmade menorah.

Kehilat Hanahar is having a Hanukkah Celebration tonight, Wednesday, December 17,  from 6 to 7:30 pm. Everyone is invited to bring their Hanukkah menorah and candles. There will be special learning and fun activities for adults and children, followed by the group lighting of all of the menorahs at once, which creates a spectacular glow in the room. The celebration will continue with the singing of Chanukah songs, with live music from Deva Troy and other congregants. There will also be latkes and sufganiot (doughnuts)! The event is open to the community.

Friday night, December 19, head to Central Bucks Ambulance at 6:30 pm for a Shabbat Latke Dinner to enjoy traditional Latkes with applesauce; photo courtesy of slashfood.comtreats like kiddush, challah and latkes. It’s free, too! Donations are, of course, always appreciated.

Guy’s Night Out. This one’s new. Ladies Nights are a dime a dozen, but Shaving Grace of Doylestown is mixing it up with a Doylestown Men’s Shaving Grace LogoShopping Night. About 15 of the stores from around Doylestown will be set up with gifts to sell, which men can peruse while enjoying free food and beer. Good idea; spread the word!

Breakfast. Breakfast lovers, rejoice. It’s that weekend of the month again, where a whole bunch of community breakfasts occur simultaneously on Sunday, December 21. Depending on your location, you may be within a mile radius in any direction from pancakes, hot off the griddle. At the Perkasie Fire Company, enjoy an All-you-can-eat Breakfast with Santa from 7:30 am to 12:30 pm. Riegelsville Fire Company is serving up breakfast from 8 am to 12:30. Silverdale Fire Company’s Breakfast begins at 8 am and runs until 1 pm.
