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.

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!

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…

Local Business Spotlight: The Fenix

As mentioned a couple of months back, Phoenixville will soon be home to a premium martini and whiskey bar. Named The Fenix, it is owned by the owners of Molly Maguire's and will be located right next door to Molly's at 193 Bridge Stret.

The Fenix hopes to have a soft opening tonight or tomorrow with a grand opening coming in September. I sent an email into General Manager Michael Matarazzo who had this to say regarding the new venture:

---
Opening in September 2008, The Fenix will offer a unique selection of over 15 specialty martinis as well as classic cocktails, fine wines and spirits. An eye-catching menu of delicious food will also be available along with great music and live DJ’s.

The Fenix will create an exciting and varied cocktail party atmosphere every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 4pm. Our guests will enjoy the comfortable lounge for food or a casual after work drink. Later on, they can listen or dance to the best music and DJ’s around or just gather at the sty…

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'.
