More information on this weekends activities

Today's Phoenix had two articles regarding festivities being held in town on Friday and Saturday. Tomorrow night will be the September First Friday as well as the final concert in the Summer Music Series. Headlining the concert is Splintered Sunlight, a pretty well known and respected Grateful Dead cover band who I believe played the final Music Series date last year as well. I have seen these guys live and if you enjoy the Dead it will be well worth checking out.

The other big event taking place tomorrow night is at the Phoenix Village Art Center, located at 207 Bridge Street. They will be hosting a Fashion Illustrations exhibit featuring the work of Freda Hirsch and a Sculptural Forms exhibit by Florence Umanoff. The exhibits will run concurrently from 6-9pm.

On Saturday night, the Phoenixville Community Health Foundation will be throwing a party to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the Foundation’s Day Of Recognition. The festival, which will take place at Freedom Field on the north side of town, will feature live music, vendors, food and a moon bounce for the little ones. Capping it off will be a fireworks display starting at around 9pm (weather permitting).

Several Local Businesses Closing Up Shop

Over the next couple of months, three local businesses will be closing their doors.

On Saturday, February 16th, Polka Dots will be closing their store at 246 Bridge Street. The shop, a women's clothing boutique, opened nearly two and a half years ago but has recently found business slow.

Originally, (owner Susan) Randels said that the store was doing well, but that the momentum could not keep up.

"The things that sold in Paoli didn't sell in Phoenixville," she said, adding that some customers thought that the store was too expensive or the sizing did not go high enough (size 12 being the highest size sold). "We tried everything."

Randels also said that parking was an issue for many of her customers who could either not find spaces or did not feel safe parking behind the store.

Polka Dots remains open until the 16th, with hours on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. The phone number is 610-935-5914. Clothing and shoes are bei…

Public meeting to discuss future of Melchiorre Park scheduled for Nov. 29th

On Thursday, November 29th, the Borough is holding a 'brainstorming session' in which plans for Melchiorre Park will be discussed with its park planning consultants. The event will be held at the High School and will begin 7pm.

For those of you who do not know about Melchiorre Park (of which I am included, even though I apparently live across the street from it), it is a 23 acre park located south of High Street on the land between it and French Creek. It appears, based on the drawing on the Borough home page, to be the land that is next to Westridge Village and across the street from the new Northridge Village community.

As part of the meeting, the consultants will 'provide a brief background of the project and present a pre-final master plan for the park'.

La Crêperie Café Bis Opens

Yesterday, Phoenixville's newest cafe opened. La Crêperie Café Bis, located at the corner of Bridge and Gay Streets at the base of the Gay St. Bridge, opened its doors at 11am. As you can probably guess by its name, La Crêperie features both sweet and savory crêpes which, owner Marietou Fanny says, are made with only fresh ingredients. Fanny also owns a restaurant in Center City in Philadelphia called La Crêperie Café, which has been open for nine years.

La Crêperie is open seven days a week. Hours are Monday-Friday from 11am-10pm, Saturday 11am-11pm and Sunday from 10am-7pm.

Best of luck to Marietou and her staff!
