"When the new film 'The Upside' opens on Friday, local theatergoers will recognize more than just the streets of Philadelphia on the screen. The historic Black Bass Hotel in Lumberville was the location of scenes for the film, which is the story of a wealthy quadriplegic who chooses a parolee as his caregiver, leading to an unlikely friendship."
The Upside, featuring Bryan Cranston, Kevin Hart and Nicole Kidman, had several scenes filmed at The Black Bass in 2017. Inspired by a true story, The Upside is a heartfelt comedy about a recently paroled ex-convict (Kevin Hart) who strikes up an unusual and unlikely friendship with a paralyzed billionaire (Bryan Cranston). The film will be in theaters on Friday, January 11, 2019 - click the link to view more photos!

"I’m in a different world.
But I’m only 47 miles from Philadelphia and 70 miles from Manhattan. So idyllic, it feels like a million miles from anywhere. [...] Legend has it that Washington did NOT sleep here at The Black Bass because the proprietors of the Inn were loyal to the Crown. Too bad for Washington, because it’s a beautiful place! Comfortable suites, award-winning restaurant and a perfect location for exploring this lovely part of America."
We're thrilled to have been included in Open Table's new list of 100 Most Scenic Restaurants in America! "Featuring breathtaking views from coast to coast, the restaurants featured on the list offer the perfect backdrop for any occasion," Open Table said about its new list.

Bucks County now has a countywide restaurant week — a first for the suburban county. Several of Bucks County's towns have their own restaurant weeks throughout the year, but this is the first countywide restaurant week, encompassing all 604 square miles of the suburban county, according to Paul Bencivengo, vice president of Visit Bucks County.
"Bucks County has an amazing culinary and beverage scene," Bencivengo said. "We see food as a travel motivator, and the timing fits perfectly with all the breweries, wineries and distilleries now open in Bucks County." Bucks County Restaurant Week also leads right into tourism season, or April 29 through May 5, he said.
