Sly Fox Goes Smoke Free


For those of you who prefer to eat at restaurants that are entirely smoke free, good news! You no longer need to drive into the city as one of our own has decided to take this step. Sly Fox Brewhouse & Eatery, located at 519 Kimberton Rd in the Pikeland Village Square, has been smoke free since January 1st.

From their e-newsletter:

---
"It was just time to do it," explained Pete Giannopoulos. "Our customers here in Phoenixville-not all of them, but most of them-were beginning to complain about the smoke and a business like ours benefits tremendously when the air is clean and people can taste the great beer and food. Even many of our longtime customers who are smokers understand and have told us they agree with our policy." Both locations will make whatever efforts they can to accommodate smokers outside the buildings, Giannopoulos added.

As a non-smoker, this is a welcome change to a place that already has a number of things going for it.

For more information, please visit the Sly Fox website.

It was great news hearing that The Fox finally went smoke-free. Coincidentally, I quit smoking the week before and it has made my trips there much more tolerable. Not to mention that I don't have to air out my clothes after each visit.

If I recall correctly, both Mollie Maguires and Iron Hill are smoke free as well.....wonder if The Ep will go smoke free?

Next, please put in place accommodations for no belching, no farting, no body odor, no crying or screaming children, and no foul language.

All of these things raise my blood pressure, and are therefore hazardous to my health just like secondhand smoke.

Good news. Molly Maguire's is smoke free and that's the main reason why I go there. Speaking of The Sly Fox, is anything going to move into that abandoned Cadillac dealership? That's such an eye sore.

Yay for the Sly Fox going smoke-free. This was one of the main reasons I never really went there.

The funny thing about the Sly Fox was that the smoking area/bar was downstairs, the non-smoking area in the upstairs "loft". So all the smoke went right up to non-smoking section anyway!

Good news. It's so nice coming out of Molly McGuire's and not having to burn my clothes.

Shame we're losing a smoke-free pioneer in the Vale Rio soon (I know, it was only part-time smoke-free, but they get points for doing it before it got trendy).

What's happening to Vale Rio?

The Val Rio Diner will close for good on Feb. 24. The physical diner itself will be disassembled and moved off the property and a Walgreen's Pharmacy will be built on the same location as the diner and the ice cream store next door. There are currently no plans in place to relocate the diner for reopening but the owners are apparently considering it. I doubt seriously.

Val-Rio Diner- I've been gone from the Phoenixville/Pottstown area for 44 years, BUT this diner was "the place". Another Walgreens!! My town in the midwest has had this happen- wonderful, historic or unique places torn down to accomodate this particular drug store chain- they all look alike and have no connection to the community! Watch out Morgantown, PA- same thing is happening (at least so I've been told). Where are the people who look after the style and history of a community? Sorry, Phoenixville for losing one the the famous Pennsylvania diners!

if the Vale Rio was a viable, money-making, sustainable business, it wouldn't be leaving. Same with the Fountain Inn. Bottom line. It's economics. Frankly, I am happy to see it go. Horrible service, subpar food for the price. Overall unfriendly.
