Bucks Food Calendar: March 11, 2015

Well, it looks like we made it. It seems that the threat of snow has finally dissipated, bringing with it the rains of spring and lots and lots of mud. Things will be coming back to life, and with it, so is the food scene in Bucks County. This coming week and weekend (March 11 – March 18) are jam-packed with fundraisers, St. Patrick’s Day festivities, and prix fixe dinners. Happy (unofficial) spring!
