Any features you would like to see?

First, I'd like to thank everyone for visiting the site. Over the past couple of months, readership has really started to grow which makes writing the blog very satisfying. With summer over, things seem to have slowed down a bit which got me to thinking. Is there anything you can think of which would make the site even more useful? I am open to any and all suggestions. Not saying they will all be implemented, but I'd like to hear what you think. Send me an email at tips@bridgeandmain.com with any suggestions you may have. And thanks again for reading!

if we want a certain business to come to our area (for example, people seem to be really interested in having a Trader Joe's store here), can we then put in some efforts in making it come true? maybe we could write a letter to Trader Joe's and express our interest in having them open a store in Phoenixville?

never mind a Trader Joe's, what we really need is a good Vietnamese restaurant.

I would love a Trader Joe's in Phxville. Unfortunately there is one only about 5 miles away so I would be suprised if they would add another store so close.

I only recently discovered your blog, and I've gotta say you're doing a great job. It's nice to have an online source for what's happening around town. I can't think of any features worth adding right now. Just keep doing what you're doing.

(and a TJ's in town would be awesome!)

There's been some talk of Trader Joe's or Whole Foods looking up in Limerick/Royersford/Upper Providence for a store.

why would a Trader Joe's come to Phoenixville when they have one ten minutes away at the Gateway shopping center in Wayne?

Do you happen to know what is planned for the building across the street from McDonalds. I know a Wawa is supposed to go in sometime but not till next year. Any info?
Thanks

Local Business Spotlight: G Lodge Restaurant

The G Lodge Restaurant is our most recent Local Business Spotlight. Located just a couple of miles from downtown to Phoenixville, the G Lodge has been a go to spot for breakfast and lunch for over 34 years. It was even featured in M.Night Shyamalan's 'The Happening'. The following is from RetroRoadmap.com:

If you’ve just visited Valley Forge National Park you may still be in the Colonial-era headspace, so why not continue in that vein by breakfast/lunching at the G Lodge? The inside of this unassuming roadside eatery (attached to an auto repair shop) echoes the log cabin structures of adjacent national park...just not as drafty.

Daily specials are listed above the counter, and there’s a lot on the menu as well. My eyes to always be bigger than my stomach here, though I’ve never sprung for the G-Buster special. Unlike many diner fans I am not a fan of breakfast homefries so I love that they have potato patties (deep fried!) as an option.

Local Baker Wins on Netflix Sugar Rush

Peri Anderson, owner of Brooklyn Girl Bakery, was part of a team that won the most recent episode of Sugar Rush on Netflix. I reached out to Peri to learn a little more about her bakery:
I started out taking a recreational cake decorating class with my mom when I was still living in NY. I loved it and moved to PA to be with my boyfriend (now husband), where I began interning for a bakery in Chestnut Hill. Over the course of 7 years I worked my way up from intern to pastry chef until I decided to leave in 2012. I do all of my baking in our home kitchen which is licensed and insured by the Dept. of Agriculture. Initially, I wanted to focus on wedding cakes so I immediately started contacting wedding venues in the area to see if they would include me a wedding cake vendor in their packages. I currently work with over 10 venues and several caterers in the area. While wedding cakes are my main focus, I also make cakes and cookie favors for all occasions. While I don’t have a retail locatio…
