Take Learning to a New Level at Doylestown District Center Library

July 22, 2014 1:38 pm

Most libraries offers thousands of books, magazines, DVDs, and CDs for residents to enjoy free of charge. So what sets one library apart from others? The programming! Special educational events are exactly what makes the Doylestown District Center Library so special.

The Doylestown District Center Library offers regular story time and singalongs—but what other library lets you meet and greet reptiles? If alligators aren’t for you, stop by with the kids for Discovery Garden. Summer is also a great time for kids to explore their artistic sides. Be sure to bring them over for the weekly Art Lab.

Doylestown District Center Library inspires learning, curiosity, and creativity. You can stop by any day of the week. Check the website for library hours and the events calendar.

Chill Out With These Recipes for Lemonade

July 15, 2014 3:10 pm

Lemonade is a summertime favorite that you’ve loved since you were a kid, but it may be time to update the cool beverage to suit your adult tastes. If you’re searching for new recipes for your old favorite lemonade, these three might do the trick!

Honey Basil Lemonade [Serious Eats]
The warm, sweet taste of honey is offset by flavorful basil in this unique lemonade recipe. The base is made from the juice of 12 fresh lemons, and a pinch of salt really helps to bring out the flavor of each individual ingredient. Garnish with more basil leaves to create a drink that’s just as attractive as it is delicious.

Vodka Lavender Thyme Lemonade [Saveur]
Turn your favorite childhood drink into your new favorite cocktail with this lemonade recipe that’s all grown up. Dried lavender gives it a fragrant, floral taste that really complements the tart lemon, while vodka and earthy thyme add an extra kick of flavor.

Thyme Lemonade [Martha Stewart]
If you haven’t yet experienced the wonderful combination of thyme and lemon, this lemonade will make you a believer. All it takes is a few sprigs of the simple herb to create a fresh, pretty drink that’s perfect for dinner under the stars.

Nonno’s: Authentic Italian Cafe With Lots of Charm

July 8, 2014 1:11 pm

Just step inside the doors of Nonno’s and you’ll understand why there’s always a snaking line within this Doylestown cafe.

Nonno’s oozes inviting charm from the moment you walk in. Old wooden fixtures adorn this local cafe, and the large chalkboards list the varieties of coffees, gelatos, and ice creams you can choose from. Benfatto coffee beans are roasted in New Jersey, and the classic Italian pastries and desserts are sourced from the tri-state area; Nonno’s is dedicated to keeping it local. Be sure to try the eye-opening and refreshing affogato (espresso and gelato!).

A couple things to keep in mind: Nonno’s is very popular. You might be waiting a few minutes for your drink or dessert, so if you’re in a rush, avoid peak hours. The cafe is also cash-only, so come with dollars in hand.

Nonno’s opens at 7:30 p.m. daily. Check the website for more details.
