Upcoming Events

Last Thursday I stopped in to say hello to Barry Cassidy. While there, I picked up a flyer highlighting events that are coming up in the next several months. Some of the highlights that have been mentioned previously include the Celtic Street Fair on May 10th, the Summer Music Series and BlobFest.

In addition to these, June's First Friday will kick off Dollar Days, a two day sale by downtown merchants. The sale runs from 10am-8pm on Friday, June 6th and then again from 10am-5pm on Saturday, June 7th.

Two weeks later, to celebrate the start of Summer, a Festival of Summer Solstice will be held downtown. Finally, on August 29th there will be a Marine Night.

In addition to all of these events, the summer months will feature the opening of several new restaurants in town as well as some new retail stores. Stay tuned for more information.

What is 'Marine Night'? Marine like ocean or marine like soldier?

If you walk by the CDC offices, you'll see that the sign for the August Marine night is for our US Marines.

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'. Source: Phoenixville Borough Website

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
