Phoenixville Featured on CNN.com

CNN.com today has a feature on Phoenixville. The article, which can be viewed here, primarily talks about BlobFest and a growing culture of people who travel to towns where their favorite movies are filmed. But it also talks a bit about the renaissance we are experiencing and how the Colonial Theatre has played a big roll role in it. Well worth a read.

Thanks to readers David, Ben and Victor for the tip!

Update 8/21/08: Thanks to my anoymous editor for the catch.

Pville just keeps 'role'-ing and we're just getting started. I love the direction the town is going and all of the exposure only makes me feel more passionately about our great little town. Keep it up!

My brother and his wife sent me this article in the mail. It was on the cover of the entertainment section in their newspaper....in MAINE!

The print article was HUGE, too. I felt very proud to be a Phoenixvillain : )

And a minor league baseball stadium!

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.
