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.

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.

Local Business Spotlight: The Fenix

As mentioned a couple of months back , Phoenixville will soon be home to a premium martini and whiskey bar. Named The Fenix, it is owned by the owners of Molly Maguire's and will be located right next door to Molly's at 193 Bridge Stret. The Fenix hopes to have a soft opening tonight or tomorrow with a grand opening coming in September. I sent an email into General Manager Michael Matarazzo who had this to say regarding the new venture: --- Opening in September 2008, The Fenix will offer a unique selection of over 15 specialty martinis as well as classic cocktails, fine wines and spirits. An eye-catching menu of delicious food will also be available along with great music and live DJ’s. The Fenix will create an exciting and varied cocktail party atmosphere every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 4pm. Our guests will enjoy the comfortable lounge for food or a casual after work drink. Later on, they can listen or dance to the best music and DJ’s around or just gather at

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'. Source: Phoenixville Borough Website
