World Class Musicians Perform at Local Dance Party

For the third year in a row, “Chico Huff and Friends,” a trio of internationally-acclaimed performers and recording artists, will be providing the music at the Annual Dance Party and Silent Auction for the Phoenixville Area Time Bank (PATB), to be held Saturday, October 11 from 7 to 11 p.m. at the Moose Lodge, 920 Township Line Road , Phoenix ville.

“I was blown away by the music at our first dance two years ago,” said an enthusiastic PATB member at last year’s dance. “I just wasn’t expecting this quality and variety of dance music in my hometown at a function of our fledgling non-profit organization. I wouldn’t have missed this for the world!”

They may be local residents, but all the musicians have far-reaching recognition. Chico Huff has performed on electric bass in recordings with James Taylor, David Crosby of Crosby , Stills, and Nash, and with Jefferson Starship. He also accompanied Carley Simon on a movie soundtrack. Having performed throughout Europe as well as in Japan and Morocco , Huff does frequent tours with the Celtic ensemble Solas and other Irish groups. Closer to home, he has CD’s with artists Susan Werner and Liz Longley. Dave Cullen, winner of a Grammy for “Best Pop Instrumental Recording,” has performed throughout North America for classical guitar societies, jazz festivals, and performing arts series. His recordings on the acoustic guitar have been featured on NPR stations across America . Paul Jost, vocalist, drummer, and composer, can be heard nationally, performing jingles he has composed for Johnson & Johnson, American Air lin es, Nissan, Anheiser Bush, Subway, and Dow Chemical.

Besides dancing and socializing, attendees at the October 11 event will be able to enjoy food, soft drinks, as well as a cash bar, and can participate in a Silent Auction, bidding on an array of attractive items, services, and unique offers contributed by local merchants and professionals, as well as members and friends of Phoenix ville Area Time Bank, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.

Tickets for the PATB Dance Party and Fundraiser ($25 in advance, $30 at the door) can be obtained by visiting www.pa-timebank.com, or by cal lin g 610-608-9281. The Phoenixville Area Time Bank, now in its fifth year, is part of a world-wide social-change movement that builds community through members sharing their skills and services in exchange for Time Dollars. Each Time Dollar represents an hour of service. Typical services include: rides to the airport, gardening, pet care, household construction, food exchanges, and computer help.

Wow. So the South Main Street Cafe lasted, what, one month? That's odd.

Actually it was only open about 2 weeks and it sure is odd. I'd love to hear the real story.

Most recent info I've heard....the cook quit and a few days later when Helen went to go back and start cooking herself, the locks had been changed for failure to pay rent. Just hearsay understand, as I have no direct knowledge. A shame really. I thought the place had real potential. The place appears to be done for good until another renter comes along and opens a new business.

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.

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…
