Steel City presents The First Annual Blob Ball

The good folks over at Steel City Coffee House sent me an email about an event they will be hosting along with the Tyler James Pub.

Steel City presents The First Annual Blob Ball featuring The Rivers Rockabilly Trio.

Location: Tyler James Pub (2nd floor)

Date: Friday, July 11, 2008 @ 9:00 PM

Join us for what is going to be the social event of the summer. Right after the annual "running out" reenactment at the Colonial Theatre, join us for a celebration to kick off BlobFest 2008. Music will be provided by The Rivers Rockabilly Trio which specializes in music of the 1950's. There will be dancing and a thematic menu provided by Tyler James Pub. The night will feature contests for the best 50's dress (men and women), the best 50's hair, the best 50's celebrity costume, the best 50's scary monster, and more . . .

Tickets are only $12.00 in advance and can be purchased at Steel City Coffee House or

Steel City is also seeking volunteers to help with the event. For more information, please visit their site.

This sounds like a neat event, too bad it's being held in the smoke-filled Tyler James Pup. Just walking in the front door you are hit with the stench. I see why smoke-free Molly Maguires is packed full while Tyler James near empty.

Tyler James allows smoking? My husband and I have been planning on trying it, but I guess we won't go afterall. I can never enjoy a meal with smoke in the air. Thanks for the heads-up!

They actually have a sign up in the window saying that the eating area will be smoke free shortly. Not sure about the rest of the bar however.

That would be nice. But they are going to have to air the place out for at least a month.

I appreciate when restaurants have a non-smoking section, but the smoke still gets through to all of the sections. Oh well....I am sure someday everything will be smoke-free (fingers crossed)

The event is going to be upstairs at Tyler James and smoke free- you can come in the entrance from the back parking lot and not have to walk through the smoky bar- that's my plan!

For you folks who have never been in Tyler James (you could go in and try yourself instead of relying on others comments). While they do allow smoking (I hate smoking) the place is big enough during regular hours to eat and drink without smoke being a problem (unless you plop your butt next to a smoker). If you go to the bar after 9pm then you'll encounter lots of smokers but prior to that it's just a smattering of smokers. So my point is: Stop being lemmings and just try it yourself.

Tyler James has been completely smoke free for over a month, as all restaurants statewide will be in September.

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

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…

Local Non-Profit Spotlight: You Are Worth It Foundation

The You Are Worth It Foundation is a grassroots homeless and in-need outreach group from Phoenixville, PA. Around Phoenixville recently asked Chris Brickhouse for some more information about the Foundation and how you can help:

Tell us a little about You Are Worth It and how it got started:
We are a homeless outreach organizations serving Phoenixville, Pottstown, Norristown, Center City and Kensington in Philly and constantly expanding. We were formed in early 2018 by Dina Rowan and I came on board last June. We have roughly 15 volunteers so far and would like to expand that to expand our reach.
