Rapidough Pizza Pies kicking off The Year of the Pizza with a day-long party this Saturday

On Saturday, January 17, Rapidough Pizza Pies in the Providence Town Center, Collegeville, Pennsylvania, will host what they're calling a kick off to THE YEAR OF THE PIZZA.

"It's a new year and it's an opportunity for everyone to discover the best pizza ever," offers Nick Farrell, partner in the unique restaurant.

Rapidough Pizza Pies opened in April with a restaurant model boasting offerings that are better than fast. In fact, when customers enter Rapidough Pizza Pies, they build custom pies, delicious calzones and fresh salads on an easy-to-use iPad interface and they're enjoying delicious gourmet food about five minutes later.

"People appreciate fast but they also desire quality," adds Nick's brother, Tom Farrell. "We knew there was a way to deliver both and to do it with food that everyone loves."

People do love pizza and that's why Rapidough Pizza Pies– whose tagline is Best. Pizza. Ever. –decided to celebrate 2015 as The Year of the Pizza and to host a day-long party for the entire community.

The year-long tribute to pizza kicks off with a party on Saturday, January 17, that will include live music, food specials, special guests and a lot of surprises.

Special guests at The Year of the Pizza event include a local brewery and distillery. Sly Fox Brewing Company, Pottstown, PA, will offer samples of their beer and special pairings with Rapidough's seasonal pies and day-only creations. Manatawny Still Works, also headquartered in Pottstown, will be pouring samples from their portfolio of spirits and offering cocktail samples that pair with Rapidough's pies, salads and calzones. You do not want to miss these combinations of locally-owned brands all coming together in one fantastic event.

Live music will be provided by Sidney Joseph who was named Best Local Musician with National Potential by Main Line Today. Joseph fuses acoustic-based rock, R&B grooves, Latin rhythms and hip-hop attitude for a sound without boundaries and he will rip through dozens of popular songs new and old, keeping the party lively.

Besides the food specials and samples there will be other surprises and giveaways throughout the day.

Schedule of Events:
  • Manatawny Still Works: 1-4pm
  • Sly Fox Brewing Company: 3-5pm
  • Live Music: 2-6pm

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. Clothing and shoes are bei…

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'.

La Crêperie Café Bis Opens

Yesterday, Phoenixville's newest cafe opened. La Crêperie Café Bis, located at the corner of Bridge and Gay Streets at the base of the Gay St. Bridge, opened its doors at 11am. As you can probably guess by its name, La Crêperie features both sweet and savory crêpes which, owner Marietou Fanny says, are made with only fresh ingredients. Fanny also owns a restaurant in Center City in Philadelphia called La Crêperie Café, which has been open for nine years.

La Crêperie is open seven days a week. Hours are Monday-Friday from 11am-10pm, Saturday 11am-11pm and Sunday from 10am-7pm.

Best of luck to Marietou and her staff!
