Candlelight Holiday Tour Being Held Tomorrow

Looking for something to do tomorrow before heading up to watch the Firebird Festival? The Phoenixville Candlelight Holiday Tour will be held from 3-7pm and features "beautifully decorated homes, houses of worship, and adaptive re-use. There will be several homes in the Main Street, Church Street and Gay Streets area near downtown for those who wish to make this part of the tour a walking tour. There are also homes featured in Schuylkill Township, which will require some driving. Of special interest will be a Celtic harpist featured at one of the homes, original art work done by another home owner, model trains, holiday collectibles, and decorations from Country Charm Furnishings which can be purchased that evening."

Tickets can be purchased today for $20 at the following locations: Heidi Sue Variety (230 Bridge St); Valley Forge Pizza (1130 Valley Forge Rd); Forestas Market (1098 West Bridge St); Ellie's Choice (211 Bridge St). They will also be on sale tomorrow at St. Peter's Episcopal Church (121 Church Street) for $25.

Proceeds from this year's tour will benefit children and the arts: The Firebird Children’s Theatre and the Phoenix Village Art Center Youth Scholarship programs.

Local Business Spotlight: G Lodge Restaurant

The G Lodge Restaurant is our most recent Local Business Spotlight.

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 loved it and moved to PA to be with my boyfriend (now husband), where I began interning for a bakery in Chestnut Hill.

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…
