Jaycees Organizing Second Date Auction

Following the success of their last date auction in February, the Phoenixville Jaycees are in the process of organizing another one that will be held at Tyler James’ Pub on Oct. 18 and will be recruiting participants during First Friday festivities this weekend.

Just like last time, some of the money raised will go to a good cause. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Phoenixville Hospital Cancer Center in honor of October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The event is scheduled to start at 9 p.m. and while there is no cover charge, donations will be accepted. There will also be live entertainment.

If you are interested in participating, please send an e-mail to jayceesdateauction@yahoo.com.

Interesting how this event has moved from the Moon Saloon to Tyler James. Spreading the wealth? Or noticing that the Moon Saloon has no energy and excitement anymore on that boring corner of the "nice" part of town.

They may have spiffed up the outside by painting the building, but it's the same old smokey bar on the inside. The one girl who works there and partially owns the place is beautiful though, I agree with you that much. But the bar still has nothing on PJ's or Molly's!

La Crêperie Café Bis Opens

Yesterday, Phoenixville's newest cafe opened. La Crêperie Café Bis, located at the corner of Bridge and Gay Streets at the base of the Gay St. Bridge, opened its doors at 11am. As you can probably guess by its name, La Crêperie features both sweet and savory crêpes which, owner Marietou Fanny says, are made with only fresh ingredients. Fanny also owns a restaurant in Center City in Philadelphia called La Crêperie Café, which has been open for nine years.

La Crêperie is open seven days a week. Hours are Monday-Friday from 11am-10pm, Saturday 11am-11pm and Sunday from 10am-7pm.

Best of luck to Marietou and her staff!

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…
