Firehouses, markets and art

Spring! photo MSClipArtOh, oh, oh. It looks like another great weekend here in Bucks County. Mark is looking forward to sanding and painting our little boat, but me…as usual I’m thinking about food. There are MANY firehouse breakfasts and dinners going on this weekend, so here’s your chance to try one if you haven’t already. Or sign up for a wine tasting or cooking class. It’s all here. Also, see our post from last week on places to sit outside and enjoy food and libations.
