Friday, May 13: Waffle Mamas & Barefoot Bobby Live at Bishop Estate Starting at 5 p.m. on Friday night, you can rejoice in a combo of waffles (Waffle Mamas Food Truck), live music, wine and beer. I can’t imagine you could be unlucky with a combo like that. Barefoot Bobby and the Breakers play a combo of classic rock, country, motown and blues. Sounds like a rockin’ time. Bishop Estate Vineyard has over 20 wines (and also local beer) available for drinking and tasting. If you buy a wine tasting, you get a souvenir glass to keep. I don’t know about you, but I’m all about souvenir glassware. Ask my husband. Bishop Estate Winery & Vineyard is located at 2730 Hilltown Pike, Perkasie, PA 18944. You can bring your kids and dogs, but keep them on a leash (just the dogs). No cover charge. Free parking.
If the rain in the forecast is true, or you don’t feel like venturing out in the world, can I recommend a light and fluffy action movie? The Lost City just premiered on Paramount+, if you have a subscription, or you can rent it on Amazon Prime. The premise is that the heroine (Sandra Bullock) is a romance novel writer, who ends up in the location of one of her romance novels, and is “rescued” by the cover model for her books (Channing Tatum). Sandra Bullock sporting a sequined magenta jumpsuit in the jungle for nearly the entire movie really adds to the comedy. Not to be missed is Brad Pitt as the former Navy Seal privateer involved in the rescue, and Daniel Radcliffe as the evil billionaire.
Saturday, May 14: Picnics on Pine, 4:30 p.m., is a seasonal Block Party in Doylestown Borough. Bring the whole family (kids under 10 are free) for live local music, dinner, and craft vendors. Bring your blankets or chairs, and set up your space for the show featuring Carsie Blanton whose music is described as ranging from “sultry pop to punk-tinged Americana”. Her special guest, Joshua Howard, is a Doylestown native who was formerly a contestant on The Voice. His soulful voice is worth the outing on its own. Check out this video of Joshua covering Sam Cooke’s ‘A Change is Gonna Come.’ Tickets are $20. The event is located behind St. Paul’s Episcopal Cathedral.
Sunday, May 15, 11 a.m. till 2:30 p.m.: Water’s Edge in Bensalem is hosting a Drag Brunch featuring ‘Britney’ vs. ‘Beyonce’. If you’ve never been to a drag brunch, perhaps you should give it a whirl? What’s more fun than some of the queens of pop serenading you while you eat some delicious brunch foods? If you’re making it an outing with some friends, they say you can add a celebration package for $25 for one of your group to go on stage and have a lip sync battle against the Queens. Water’s Edge is located at 1067 Totem Road in Bensalem.
If that’s not quite your speed, maybe speed on over to one of the car events going on in Bucks County on Sunday. At Fred Beans, they are hosting an all MOPAR show (Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram and Plymouth) on Sunday from 9 AM to 2 p.m. If you’d like to enter your MOPAR, it’s $15 to register, and there are prizes in a variety of categories. If you’re looking for more variety, the Dairy Queen in Quakertown is hosting a car cruise from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., with a suggested donation of $1 (All proceeds go to CHOP). Good Time Motorvators is sponsoring this event, where they say there will be food and music as well. Check it out at 206 West End Blvd. (Route 309) in Quakertown.
Tuesday, May 17, 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.: I know it’s not the weekend, but I would be remiss not to mention our Primary Elections taking place on Tuesday, all over Bucks County. If you haven’t already voted by mail, please go vote in person. Voting is the way we affect change, not only on a national level, but also on the very local. This voting cycle, we are voting for state level offices like Governor, State Representative, and State Senator, as well as federal level seats like US House of Representatives and US Senators. Find your polling place here, and check your voter registration here. If you want to do any research over the weekend, you can look up your Sample Ballot by precinct.
