It’s hard to believe it’s almost June. Summer is well on its way, so it’s time to start planning vacations and weekend getaways! I never liked waiting until vacation or the weekends to go out to eat and try new foods, especially when it seems like Monday through Friday is dragging along. If you don’t feel like waiting, check out some of these highlighted local events, like a lobster feast, a farm fresh potluck, and a schnitzel night.
Lobster fest. Craving lobster but don’t want to do the prepping yourself? Treat yourself to a lobster feast at The Buck Hotel in Feasterville. On Tuesdays after 5 pm enjoy a lobster fest of either: one pound of lobster at market price, one and half pound lobster at market price, or two and a half pounds of lobster at market price, all served with a choice of soup du jour or salad. The lobsters are served with lemon and drawn butter. All sides are served a la carte. Add crab imperial for $10.
Schnitzel Night.Join the United German Hungarians in Bensalem for a Schnitzel Night at the club, every first Wednesday of the month. Dinner is $10 for adults and $5 for children, dessert is available for purchase, and there is a fully stocked cash bar.
The meal includes schnitzel (pork), red cabbage, and spaetzle (dumplings). Reservations aren’t necessary, but if you’re planning on bringing a large group, call Kathi Galgon at 215.542.0868.
There is a potluck to go along with the event which starts at 6 – 7 pm, with the tour to follow. Visitors are expected to bring a dish to share with others, and bring their own eating equipment, beverages and seating. Be expected to carry out your own trash. Know your farmer, know your food!
Themed Thursdays.The Frenchtown Inn in Hunterdon County had such a successful Cinco de Mayo that they are going to keep it going, starting every Thursday. Each week, the inn will feature different cuisines from around the world paired with $5 drink specials. Last week’s menu included food with Latin flair, like braised beef nachos and fish tacos, and house margaritas, mojitos, and Frenchtown Inn rum punch. Check your email, their website, or Facebook to see what the menu will be this week. We realize this isn’t Bucks County, but these themed Thursdays seem too good to pass up!
Chef cook-off.Are you a big fan of Iron Chef? Then you’ll like this event at Mojito Cuba Caribe Restaurant in New Hope. On Thursday, June 3, starting at 6 pm, there will be a battle between two chefs. The chefs will each create three small plates of their choice, only using the same ingredient in their featured entrée dish.
Customers get to vote on each plate based on taste, creativity, and presentation. The choice to participate in this event is a fixed price $25 which includes six small plates (three by each chef), one house wine, domestic beer, or house mixed drink. Last week’s chef cook-off included menu items like bacon wrapped shrimp, shrimp tacos, and Cake Naranja (orange butter cake).
