“Couscous, the food so nice, they named it twice”
from the film Pineapple Express
What better way to enjoy great food and discover new dishes and new and not so new local venues than to attend this year’s Upper Bucks Chamber of Commerce Foodie Event, this THURSDAY, October 18h at Sands Chrysler/Dodge in Quakertown, PA,
