Restaurant Festival Planned for Sunday, May 22nd

On Sunday, May 22nd, Phoenixville will be hosting its first Restaurant Festival. From Downtown Phoenixville News:
The Main Street CDC in conjunction with downtown restaurants and stores plan on staging the first Phoenixville Restaurant Festival on May 22 from 11 AM to 6 PM. The event will take place on the 100 and 200 blocks of Bridge Street. Those blocks will be closed down for the event pending the approval of Phoenixville Borough.

Many of the restaurants will expand their service capabilities to the middle of the street as a vast array of specialty food is presented in festival fashion. Although there will be no formal stage, musical groups will be spread throughout the downtown similar to what has been done in the past for First Fridays. There will be an area for children with face painting and other amenities including a moon bounce.

The organizers hope to bring forth a new festival, which will be replicated throughout the years. The festival schedule is very crowed during May with the Celtic Festival being held on May 14th and the Dogwood Festival being held the May 16th through the 21st. The Phoenixville restaurant Festival will be the day after the Dogwood Festival ends.

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!

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…
