Progressive Dinner to Feature Four Local Businesses

On Thursday, September 17, 2009, the Phoenixville Area Business Association (PABA) will host a Progressive Dinner featuring four local businesses.
The Phoenixville Area Business Association (PABA) just recently opened ticket sales for their newest Progressive Dinner featuring four PABA member establishments all in easy walking distance in downtown Phoenixville. The dinner, scheduled for Thursday September 17, 2009 will include a four course menu starting with the aperitif at The Fenix (Phoenixville’s first and only upscale martini bar), followed by the appetizer course at the all new Bistro on Bridge (212 Bridge Street). The entrée will be served at the newly reopened Baxter’s @ 101 (formerly 101 Bridge) and will be served with a complimentary glass of wine. The final course will include an assortment of desserts at Artisan’s Gallery & Café.

The event is the third such dining event organized by PABA, with the last being a very successful Historic Inns of Phoenixville Dinner and Tour featuring the Pickering Creek Inn and Columbia Bar & Grille on May 12, 2009. “Our goal is to host one restaurant type event in Phoenixville per quarter,” reported Jane Tucker, current president of the association, “The events have been well-received and we are looking to sell out this event.” The events are designed to promote local businesses and the Phoenixville area as a destination point for both residents and visitors.

Tickets for the event are available for sale on the business association’s website at www.DISCOVERPHOENIXVILLE.com. Tickets can also be purchased in person at Steel City Coffee House or Fashionista’s Salon. Tickets are $49 per person and include all four courses. The ticket price does not include alcoholic drinks (other than the aperitif and one glass of wine with dinner) or gratuities. Non-alcoholic beverages such as coffee, tea, soda, and water are available at all locations at no cost. A menu featuring offerings from each establishment will be available online. Each participant will receive a Discover Phoenixville! Gift Bag containing gift items, coupons and offers from PABA member businesses. Group ticket purchases of 6 or more will be discounted, please contact Jane M. Tucker at 484-686-7792 to purchase group tickets.

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…

Public meeting to discuss future of Melchiorre Park scheduled for Nov. 29th

On Thursday, November 29th, the Borough is holding a 'brainstorming session' in which plans for Melchiorre Park will be discussed with its park planning consultants. The event will be held at the High School and will begin 7pm.

For those of you who do not know about Melchiorre Park (of which I am included, even though I apparently live across the street from it), it is a 23 acre park located south of High Street on the land between it and French Creek. It appears, based on the drawing on the Borough home page, to be the land that is next to Westridge Village and across the street from the new Northridge Village community.

As part of the meeting, the consultants will 'provide a brief background of the project and present a pre-final master plan for the park'.

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!
