Wolfgang Books Hosting Final Event This Saturday

Wolfgang Books, which is set to close its doors at the end of the month, is hosting one final event this Saturday when they present author John Reimringer as part of their Writers at Bridge and Main series.
Saturday, March 12th @ 3 pm
(Steel City Coffee House)

One of the legends of Wolfgang Books (and a true one at that) is that the business began with a single book. Rather than go out with a whimper, we'd like to go out with...one book.

So we're going to bring in John Reimringer, all the way from St. Paul, Minnesota for the last installment of the Writers at Bridge and Main Series at Steel City Coffee House. John is the author of the recently released Vestments, one of our 2010 books of the year. It is a powerful and compelling story, not to mention expertly written. One of the most striking aspects of the novel is that John writes so well about such a variety of experiences: the legacies of childhood, a pick-up basketball game, high school love and questions of faith, just to name a few.

Above all, Wolfgang Books always aimed to put the best work in your hands, and Vestments certainly is representative of that. We hope that you'll be able to make it to this last order of business and help us go out the same way we came in.

This event is free, open to the public and begins at 3 pm at Steel City Coffee House. Please arrive a little early to get a good seat and pick up a drink or snack to enjoy during the reading.

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…
