Is The Moon Saloon next? Seriously, this is good news. Molly Maguire's and Iron Hill are smoke free. So is Sly Fox. Hopefully Ryan's Pub will be as well when it opens. The Columbia is a very nice place. I'm glad I can now go in there and not leave smelling like smoke.

Fantastic!

Unfortunately, I wouldn't bet on The Moon Saloon going non-smoking unless forced to do so.
I've been in Mollys several times where it DID smell like smoke until I realized it was all of the puffers on the deck - that patio smoking area is downright disgusting (former smoker saying this)!

Molly Maguire's has a nice thing going with that deck... especially on a pleasant day/evening. Until the smokers decide it's time to light up and head upstairs- nevermind the people who were already sitting out there eating their dinner in smoke-free peace.

Great, another establishment we won't visit. We don't patronize any business which doesn't allow smoking.

Good. Stay at home. I don't want to be at the same restaurant as you anyway.

Good...another restaurant I WILL visit. I do not go to places that allow smoking. I am tired of having to put my clothes outside after a night out b/c they smell so bad.

Great! I can take my Mom's Night Out gals there now and we can kiss our kids goodnight when we get home without defumigating!

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…
