Food News / August 2018

Written by County Lines Magazine

A few of our favorite things to share this month about local food and drink.

Slushie, Not Slushy

Enjoy the good kind of slushie as you chill out this summer at one of Chaddsford Winery’s Wine Slushie Weekends. Try a featured flavor offered on August 4 and 5, or sample all four with a Slushie Flight for $15. Using seasonal ingredients mixed with various vinos, slushie flavors include confections like peach Bellini, black raspberry, sour apple and prickly peach. Single servings and flights make you forget the other kind of slush. 632 Baltimore Pk., Chadds Ford. More at

Kids in the Kitchen

Sign up your budding chefs and cheffettes (age 8–11) for Kitchen Workshop’s cooking or baking summer camp. Only 10 campers per week, so kiddos get one-on-one help from a sous chef. From cupcakes to pizza and Bundt cakes to baklava, kids will master tasty new recipes. Plus, they’ll learn cooking techniques, kitchen tools and safety along with some reading, math and chemistry. A $320 fee includes supplies and food. 21 Plank Ave., Paoli. More info at

Al Fresco August

Enjoy a meal in the summer sun on Friday, August 31 to mark National Eat Outside Day. Celebrate earlier in the week at Media’s Dining Under the Stars for al fresco dining on warm-weather Wednesdays featuring 20+ local restaurants. Or, visit Kennett Square’s Third Thursday on State Street for outdoor dining, shopping and live music on August 16 and September 20. And just about any day or night offers al fresco dining options on the sidewalks of West Chester.

A Bowl of Nutrition

Capture the taste of the ocean at Playa Bowls’ newest location in Wayne. The New Jersey-based açai shop takes pride in hand-crafting healthy snacks and smoothie bowls using exotic fruits and other fresh, nutritious ingredients. Sample a Pink Flamingo or Electric Mermaid dragon fruit bowl. Popular açai bowls are made with Brazilian berries infused with antioxidants that even help to cure hangovers! 150 E. Lancaster Ave., Wayne.

Pour One for Me

Looking for a hoppy and tropical beer to quench your summer thirst? Try Pour House IPA, Victory Brewing Company’s fifth and latest signature beer collaboration brewed exclusively for The Pour House. This drinkable IPA is a cloudy brew flavored heavily with tropical hops. It’s available by the pint for $5 at all three The Pour House locations, including Exton. 116 Pottstown Pk., Exton.
