This time of the year, Girl Scouts and their teal vests are a fixture outside grocery stores and in our neighborhoods, selling their tasty cookies. The Manayunk Development Corporation is doing its part with its Girl Scout Cookie Month, which benefits local troops. Throughout February, you can visit participating restaurants in Manayunk to taste exclusive cookie dishes and cocktails. Last year’s creations included Bourbon Blue’s Caramel Delight Decadence cocktail and a beer-flight-and-cookie pairing by SOMO. Our favorite: the Peppermint Painkiller featuring Thin Mints, courtesy of Lucky’s Last Chance.
Spanish-inspired Cerdo is hosting a romantic night of drinking, eating and learning the art of forming dough for pizzas and pasta. Chef Will Langlois is orchestrating the event, which takes place Feb. 11-12 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Sessions are $70 per person and include hors d’oeuvres, wine—and, of course, plenty of fresh dough.
On Feb. 7 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., Wayne Art Center is hosting a Valentine’s Day Date Night, where spouses, partners, friends and solo foodies can enjoy a hands-on cooking demonstration prepared by culinary instructor Karen Bentz. Later, you’ll enjoy a sumptuous four-course dinner (set non-vegetarian menu) paired with pours from Chaddsford Winery.
