This Fall, Enjoy Fresh Maryland Crabs Outside on the Patio at Wegmans

Through October, diners craving fresh Maryland crabs need only to visit their local Wegmans, in Malvern, PA (50 Foundry Way, 484-913-9660), King of Prussia, PA (1 Village Drive, 484-690-3560) and Collegeville, PA (600 Commerce Drive, 484-902-1560), for their fun, seasonal Crab Fest. Working with Maryland’s Harris Crab House, the stores will offer fresh live and steamed blue crabs outside on the patio; guests can pre-order crabs to take home or stay and enjoy the festive atmosphere.

“We’ve always been committed to sourcing the finest fresh, local food for our guests – and Harris’ blue crabs are taken from the water, put into their truck and literally driven right to our door, where we steam them and pour them out on picnic tables for Crab Fest,” says Kathy Haines, director of Wegmans in-store restaurants and Market-Cafes. “We’re bringing the best of the Chesapeake Bay inland and offering the tastiest, freshest crabs available.”

Crab Fest will be held at Wegmans locations across the region, including: Collegeville on Sunday, September 9 and Saturday, October 27; King of Prussia on Sunday, September 16; and Malvern on Sunday, October 7. Beginning at noon and continuing until 5 p.m., Harris Crab House will park their truck in front of the store and serve steamed crabs to guests on the patio. Crabs are $33 per dozen, and are also available by the ½ bushel ($79 for approximately 36 crabs) and the bushel ($150 for approximately 72 crabs).

During Crab Fest events, guests are encouraged to interact with the Harris Crab House team, who will be steaming the crabs to order. Guests who prefer to take their crab feast to-go can pre-order them either live or steamed by contacting the Wegmans Catering Department; two days’ notice is required for any pre-order.

For more information about the Wegmans Crab Fest, please call any of the three locations or visit www.wegmans.com.

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!
