Third Annual Blob Ball to be held Friday, July 9th

The third annual Blob Ball will be held at Club 212 on Friday, July 9th, beginning shortly after the 'Running Out' reenactment at the Colonial:
Iron Town Productions, The Rivers Rockabilly Trio put on the favorite ball of the year, Blob Ball! The 3rd Annual Blob Ball will be held at Club 212 right around the time of the "running out" reenactment at the Colonial Theatre. Blob Ball will feature The Rivers Rockabilly Trio playing all the hits from the 1950s, dancing (swing), and contests. Participants can win prizes for Best 50s Dress (male & female), Best 50s Celebrity Impersonator, Best 50s Scary Movie Character, and Best Dancers. Last year this event sold out and we had to turn over 70 people away. This year we have much more space, but are expecting hundreds of people.

Tickets are $10 adv. and $12 at the door (if not sold out).

We have special VIP tickets for $15. VIP tickets get premiere seating (leather couches, love seats and coffee tables) window access for viewing the "running out" reenactment and waitress service. VIP seating will be right next to the dance floor and band.

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!

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…
