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.

Local Business Spotlight: G Lodge Restaurant

The G Lodge Restaurant is our most recent Local Business Spotlight.

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.

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.

While I don’t have a retail locatio…
