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.

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…
