Shop to Beat MS: A Benefit for Walk MS at the Devon Horse Show

Hors d’oeuvres, live music and holiday shopping will all be in store for those attending a charitable fundraiser in Radnor next month. On December 5, the National MS Society will be partnering with the 333 Belrose Bar and Grill to host a kick-off event for Walk MS at the grounds of the Devon Horse Show.

“We are proud to be partnering with the MS Society to host this event. We are committed to supporting those living with MS on the Main Line,” says Kelly Finch, Manager and Events Coordinator at 333 Belrose, which has a reputation for its commitment to community involvement in the Radnor Area.

Amongst the vendors who will be present for “Shop to Beat MS” will be the trendy trunk show vendor Stella and Dot, and the cupcake truck Dia Dolce. Guests who attend the event will enjoy valet parking, a variety of hors d’oeuvres, desserts and wine and a silent auction while they shop. There will also be a performance from singer-songwriter Seamus McGroary. Guests will also have the chance sign up to walk or volunteer for Walk MS 2013.

Walk MS manager Melissa Hersh views the event as an opportunity to bring communities in the Main Line together. “We are always looking to recruit more members of the MS Movement; we thought our partnership with the Belrose would be the perfect opportunity to get the word out about our inaugural year partnering with the Devon Horse Show.” Walk MS at the Devon Horse Show will take place on Sunday, May 5, 2013.

“Shop to Beat MS” will take place from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Wednesday, December 5, 2012 at 333 Belrose Bar and Grill located at 333 Belrose Lane, Radnor, PA 19087. Tickets will be $25 at the door. A portion of the proceeds will go to funding programs and services, research, and treatments for the more than 14,000 people living in the Greater Delaware Valley with MS. To RSVP for the event, email adrienne.webb@nmss.org or call 215-271-1500.

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.
