Colonial to host First Annual Robert Burns Memorial Whisky Tasting on Friday, January 25th

On Friday, January 25th, the Colonial Theatre is hosting their First Annual Robert Burns Memorial Whisky Tasting.

From their email:

---
This event to benefit the Colonial is a chance for tasting single malts and limited edition whiskies that you would not normally see on your bar shelves or in your local liquor store. We have this opportunity because Riannon Walsh, a world-renowned whisky expert, lives right in our back yard and loves and supports the Colonial herself. Riannon's work in the industry over the past 20 years includes hands on experience in small batch pot still whisky production in both U.S.-based and Scottish malt distilleries. Her expertise as a "nose" has resulted in independent bottlers of single malts turning to Riannon for cask selection.

The Association for the Colonial Theatre wishes to thank our premiere sponsor for their support:

Master Distiller: New Century Bank

And, special thanks to our Head Stillmen sponsors:
  • Riannon Walsh, President of Cloonaughill Celtic Malts, Inc.

  • Michael Ramondo, owner of Cheese!

  • Christopher Curtin, master chocolatier at Eclat Chocolate

Riannon, Michael and Christopher are putting together what will be a delightful evening of tasting and learning about single malts, and some wonderful cheeses and chocolates to complement them.

Sponsorship opportunities for this unique event are still available!
  • Master Distiller [$1,000]: Includes four seats at the tasting table and your name in poster, press and future emails.

  • Head Stillman [$500]: Includes two seats at the tasting table and your name in poster, press and future emails.

Checks can be made out to ACT and sent to PO Box 712, Phoenixville, PA 19460. Contributions are fully tax-deductible for any amount above $30 per person. This event can be a great holiday gift for family, friends or business associates - single tickets are available for $100 per seat. Each attendee will receive the hand blown whisky glass they use in the evening's tasting as a keepsake. These glasses were designed by Riannon Walsh to accentuate the subtle nuances of fine spirits.

Finally, we'd like to thank Tom Bromley of Centre Grafik, Inc. for designing the beautiful artwork and invitations for this event. Please let us know if you would like to receive a printed invitation in the mail. Tickets are extremely limited so please reserve your spot as soon as possible. Hope to see you on the 25th!

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…
