Huge Weekend on Tap

This weekend promises a little something for everyone (and a lot for those adventurous souls). Things kick off on Friday night with the final First Friday of the season. October is Fire Safety Awareness Month and to celebrate the 200 block of Bridge Street will be closed so that local fire departments can showcase their trucks and help educate everyone of fire safety. In addition, local businesses will be kicking off the second annual Paint the Town Pink campaign, raising money for the Phoenixville Healthcare Access Foundation who in turn will fund free mammograms for Phoenixville area residents, and For Pete’s Sake, a foundation which provides “respite vacations” for those with cancer and their families. For more on the Paint the Town Pink campaign and additional events that will be held over the month of October, please see the Pottstown Mercury article.

Saturday sees even more to do, with TEDxPhoenixville returning to the Colonial Theatre, the first ever Phoenixville Food Festival and the ever popular Oktoberfest Pub Crawl.

With temperatures expected to be in the low to mid-80s, there's no excuse not to get out and experience some of the great things Phoenixville has to offer this weekend!

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

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
