There is no excuse to be bored this week if you love to eat. This weekend alone there’s so much to do: beer pairing dinners, haunted wine tastings, food truck festivals, oh, and a chocolate-making class. Of course, there are the ongoing traditional fall activities too. Be sure to check our full calendar to get all the details.

Sum Pig Food TruckFood truck festivals. There’s more than one this weekend! The first one is the Lambertville Food Fair, this Thursday, October 16, from 5 to 10 pm. Local restaurants will be serving specials on the street, plus more than 10 food trucks (including a truck that puts bacon in every dish) and a beer and wine garden featuring Yards Brewery beers and wines from some of the many local vineyards in the area. Check out our post about it here.

Round two is the Fall Food Truck Fiesta at Mercer County Park this Saturday, October 18 from 11 am to 7 pm. Seventeen food trucks, a wine and beer garden, music provided by the Sensational Soul Cruisers and Kindred Spirit, and massages. Sounds like a heavenly way to spend a Saturday.

Of course, there’s also the weekly Food Truck Fridays at Bucks County Brewery and Hewn Spirits on Friday night from 5 to 9 pm. This week there are two food trucks, one specializing in Greek Food and the other in BBQ. Eat up and try the local brews and liquor while enjoying the live music, provided by the duo “Rob and Marty”.

Sorry for the late notice, but… check out the Firestone Walker Beer Dinner TONIGHT (Wednesday, October 15) at Iron Abbey in Horsham starting at 7 pm. It’s a five-course dinner featuring a Firestone Walker brew per course. If you want to know exactly what’s on the menu, you can view it here, but a few of the standout courses include Sesame Soba with Seared Red Tuna paired with Double Jack IPA and Dark Chocolate Coffee Mousse with Pistachio and Blueberry Cream paired with Agrestic Ale.

Beer tastingMore for the beer lovers! Drink and dine with a handful of Pennsylvania’s best brewmasters at the Meeting of the Malts: A Celebration of PA Lager, Tuesday, October 21 from 6 to 8:30 pm at Sly Fox Brewery in Pottstown. Learn about the history of Pennsylvania Lager from acclaimed brewmasters themselves, while sipping on sample brews and enjoying the food specially paired with them. Brewmasters on the lineup include Bill Covaleski, co-founder of Victory Brewing, Bill Moore of Lancaster Brewing Company, and Brian O’Reily of Sly Fox Brewing.

The next night (Wednesday, October 22), head to the Rising Sun Inn for a four-course Beer Tasting Dinner and Blind Taste Test from 6:30 to 9 pm. Try four different Autumn and Winter Lagers with your meal and test out your taste buds blind-folded for fun.

tarot and wineHalloween is coming. Get spooky at Crossing Vineyards and Winery’s “Wine & Spirits” Tarot Card Reading this Thursday night (October 16) from 7 to 9:30 pm. Also Thursday, get the chills at Chaddsford Winery at their Toast the Ghost event from 7 – 9 pm as Adele Gamble of New Hope Ghost Tours tells local ghost stories. There are tons more Halloween events coming up next week so be sure to keep checking our calendar and read next week’s round-up.

Treat yourself! If you’re familiar with Pierre’s Chocolates, you may have experienced the borderline religious awakening brought on by biting into one of their dark chocolate ganache truffles. Now you can see how they are made at a Chocolate Making Class this Monday, October 20 at Pierre’s from 7 – 9 pm. It’s doubtful you’ll leave the class with skills on par with Pierre’s, but you can bite into a heavenly piece of chocolate with the satisfaction of knowing that you earned it.
