Opening Night at Deuces Wild Comedy Club

First thing to note is that even though the club is part of the valley forge casino, it is located on the lower level of the Radisson. The tables and booths create an intimate ‘U’ shape around the stage, giving everyone a great view of the stage and close contact to the comedian. There is a two drink minimum, non-alcoholic drinks are included in that, but let’s be honest enjoy the wine, beer or cocktails and settle in for a great night ahead. The food was decent but you should go in expecting ballpark pub fare, not to worry, whatever calories you may ingest will be burned off with laughter.

So that’s the venue setup, now to the important part – the show! There were three comedians, including headliner Joey Gay. The MC (Matt Scarpelli) did a great job of firing up the crowd and filling in between comedians. Each comedian went on for 15-20 minutes. The opening comedian (Pat House) had the crowd roaring. He made one joke about a random passerby noting how cute a couple his mom and he made; oddly a similar thing occurred to my father and me over the weekend. The second comedian (Patrick Dodd) was my least favorite but hey there always has to be one. He had a few funny lines but overall his set was not as well received.

Finally, the headliner was up. A native of Brooklyn, Joey Gay has an impressive resume, including NBC’s “Last Comic Standing.” He’s performed onstage at clubs like New York’s “Caroline’s on Broadway”, “Comedy Village”, “Laugh Factory” and “Catch a Rising Star”. As an actor, he’s had roles in NBC’s “Law & Order,” “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” and “Deadline,” as well as in MTV’s “Damage Control. He opened his set mocking the stage which included a mechanical bull – it is a country western bar after all, and from that first joke captured the audience. Comedians, like most entertainers, push the envelope at times but was every joke racy – far from it. My favorite actually being when Gay started singing Sweet Caroline and held the mic to the crowd to chant back “Oh, Oh, Oh” after which he said “And that is how you find white people in the woods”. My best friend and I laughed our way through the hour and a half show and afterwards invited friends and family to join us for future shows. It is a great event for anyone looking to have fun and break the stress of a long work week.

Now just a simple request to future guests – yes ,comedians coming into Philadelphia know that we are a tough crowd. We are the city known for booing Santa and if you do not believe me just watch get Bill Burr’s rant on our audiences. But just a simple note to the crowd, and in specifically to the crabby old lady up front.... If you don't like a joke, don't feel the need to laugh and, whatever you do, don't heckle the comedian unless you are prepared for him to give it back.

Tickets are $25 a piece but use promo code comedy and get tickets for 15 bucks, which is honestly a steal for a night of laughter and entertainment. Bring your friends, your significant other or just come out by yourself and make a friend at the show. It is worth the money and a really great way to spend a Thursday night.

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…
