Bucks Happening Winner: Pets Boarding
Bucks Happening Finalist: Pet Walker/Sitter

Pets Are Inn is a unique alternative for your pet boarding needs! Unlike traditional kennels; your pet is placed in a private home! We carefully screen animal loving individuals and families to care for them. Your fur baby lives with the Host family and gets the personal attention they are used to…. lots of love, playing, walking, a warm comfortable place to sleep, their own food, and even belly rubs!

Pets Are Inn learns about your fur baby through our interview process. We gather necessary information from those who know your pet the best, YOU. We want to know as much as we can about their activity needs, habits and behavior…all those things that make your pet unique!

Next, the appropriate host family is picked based on your fur baby’s individual needs. The host will get a detailed profile. You’re welcome to share additional information about your pet in a personal note so they will know just what their special guest needs!

We have a wide variety of host families…. those with children and/or pets, families without children and/or pets; those who work from or stay at home; single folks and retirees! The one thing they all share is their love of pets and the companionship they provide.

Pets Are Inn has been around since 1982 and knows what to do to make sure your pet is always in a safe environment. Since we have been caring for pets for 35 years, we know exactly what to look for when screening host families and we know who is the best to take care of your particular pets. We have a strong support system, which has been built from decades of experience with pet care, and that is what makes us the safest alternative to kennels!

Bigg Romeo

Bucks Happening List Winner: Band

Some kids have dreams and aspirations of growing up and entering noble professions which focus on helping those in need. These are doctors, firefighters, police officers, and yes, even lawyers. Others aspire to become great artists contributing to the social culture, in turn creating new and original fashions, trends, and fads.
Then there’s us.

A group of eight goof-balls who can’t get a grasp on the concept of reality. Eight people who would rather reap the benefits of “real artists”creative efforts than putting in the sweat and tears of actually achieving something for ourselves. But hey, we’re good at it!
And we’re fun too…..

Bigg Romeo is made up of eight of the strangest and nicest people you’ll ever meet. Since 1995 Bigg Romeo has been tearing it up all over the East Coast in nite clubs, casinos and private affairs.  Never missing a beat and always leaving crowds smiling, dancing and wanting more. Bigg Romeo is a winner of Philadelphia Magazine’s “Best of Philly” as well as a 7 time Winner of “Brides Choice from Wedding Wire.

We are very proud to be a 6 time winner of Buck Happenings “Best Band” in the wedding category. We love Bucks County and are glad to call it our home.

Bigg Romeo has over 400 weddings under it’s belt and plays over 150 shows a year. If you can only go see one band this summer, go see the Vanilla Ice “I’m not hardcore anymore” Tour, but if you see two………make sure you catch Bigg Romeo. It’s time you felt the love.

The Mansion Inn

9 S Main Street
New Hope PA

Bucks Happening List Finalist: Best Kept Secret

The Mansion – a quaint manor home that’s been a notable part of Bucks County’s history – has been saved, transformed, and restored over the years. What once served as a doctor’s home and practice quickly became a highly sought after piece of Main Street New Hope property. The building has since been transformed into what we know today as The Mansion. The manor – which boasts a restaurant, 5 hotel rooms, event space, and a swimming pool – was recently adopted by two New York City businessmen turned foodies.

Without detracting from the old-world-charm of The Mansion, Tomasulo and Grande completely revamped the aesthetic of the building. They started by adding a French Grey to the walls and incorporating details like shades of City Sexy Red and chic, modern decor. In addition, they highlighted the moulding and woodwork, restored the wood floors, updated the front porch, and upgraded the bar.

On top of all of the structural changes, the duo created an entirely new menu and brought in a new chef to provide a fresh culinary perspective on classics. For instance, instead of serving traditional French Onion Soup, the menu boasts French Onion Soup Dumplings, a hybrid of the classic comfort food and Asian cuisine. Other like-minded menu items like the Katz’ Deli Pastrami Eggrolls, served with a side of spicy Asian mustard, and scallops, served over a pumpkin risotto, inspire visitors to try new versions of their old favorites.

This year, the new owners plan to break ground on a new backyard, which will feature seating for 100+ people; a private area to relax, wine, and dine; and even a luxury ceremony area to host intimate weddings ceremonies.

To complete the transformation and convey their modern twist to the traditional setting, a name change was in order. The Mansion has since become Royal T’s at The Mansion. Kris’ son, Royal, inspired the name change (the “T,” of course, is for owner Tomasulo!).
