Pints for Pups Comes to Phoenixville this Saturday

Beer lovers and dog lovers from all over the Phoenixville area will gather next Saturday, August 9, 2014 to celebrate their passion for canines and their love of imbibing – all for a great cause! The Humane Society Phoenixville’s first ever Pints for Pups event will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. at the parking lot of Bridge and Main Streets in Phoenixville. The event, which began in 2005 by the Humane Society of Berks County, a Humane Pennsylvania partner organization, consists of dozens of beers in which to sample, a full buffet, silent auction, dog-friendly snacks, music from The Barren Wells and much more!

As has always been the case for this event, all 21 years of age and over individuals are welcome to attend, as well as well-behaved and leashed canine companions. All proceeds go directly to aid Humane Pennsylvania in its mission to ensure that every companion animal lives in a safe, loving and secure home. “We have a lot of fun putting this event on in Berks County and as we look to expand our animal care programs in the Phoenixville area, it made sense to bring one of our best and biggest events, Pints for Pups, to this area as well,” stated Karel Minor, President and CEO of Humane Pennsylvania, The Humane Society Phoenixville’s parent organization. “Whether people are coming out for the beer, to get a cool pint glass or because it’s something fun to do with their dog, it doesn’t matter as every attendee helps support our overall organization’s mission and that’s what is important.”

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.
