PJ Ryan's Hosting Key West Night to Benefit Phoenixville Police Athletic League

On Thursday, January 8th, PJ Ryan's will be hosting a 'Key West' night to raise money for the Phoenixville Police Athletic League.

From today's Phoenix:

According to Schuylkill Township Police Officer and PAL Executive Director Jim Deoria Jr., the pub, 231 Bridge Street, will donate 20 percent of all of their customer's food bills to the PAL organization.

"We're pleased that PJ Ryan's is willing to donate to PAL a portion of their food sales," said Deoria. "We're hoping that it'll be a busy night for them."

The pub is anticipating a busy night, as they will be showing the BCS National Championship college football game between No. 1 Oklahoma and No. 2 Florida on all of their televisions.

Along with the college football game, the pub is offering drink specials, such as $5 Hurricanes, $2.50 Red Stripe, and $3 Landshark, Captain Morgan drinks and Stella drafts.

Food specials include jerk chicken, pineapple shrimp over red beans and rice, and island BBQ pork sliders.

The pub is also holding a Hawaiian shirt contest, as there will be prizes awarded for the best and worst Hawaiian shirt that evening.

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.

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…
