Jonathan Looper Antiques closed his doors on Main Street ....oh....probably 1 1/2 years ago already. Where do these nominations come from?

thanks for the head's up. I think they just have a huge directory of businesses, all of which are eligible for an award. Guess they don't keep it up to date. I am to blame as well as I basically just copied last year's blog post, checked that the links were still active, and posted it for this year. Its been removed and I have added Salon Fiber in its place. If anyone notices any others that have closed, or one's that need to be added, please post it here in the comments.

Thanks

You may want to add Artisans Gallery and Cafe to the contender list for Best Coffee Shop. They have been part of the downtown for--I think--2 years, right?
I don't think they have a website, but you don't need one to qualify for the Hot List.

I have no control over who is on Fox's nominee list. If/when they are added I'll be sure to link to them.

When you vote for a business, there is an option in each category to add a business, I believe. Also, I do think Artisan's has a website up and running now (no, I don't work there) but it is by far my favorite coffee shop. Best mood, best drinks, best staff.

If you do a search for Phoenixville on the Hot List's site, you will find *5* pages of local businesses that are up for votes. Good luck PHX businesses!

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…
