Media in Twenty Seconds
That's correct, 20 seconds. New and Improved? Not quite. I had to shorten things up a bit due to time constraints.
Post Plumstead Inn?

Victory BrewPub in Media?
If the business development department of Victory Brewing saw the responses to how people feel about bringing a brewpub in Media, I think they'd seriously entertain it. Way too early to see what'll shake out here, but it has definitely been generating a ton of excitement.
Chinese New Year Celebration Today!
2016 (Chinese Calendar) represent the Year of the Monkey which will be celebrated on the State Street in Media. It's a parade of sorts that has become a yearly, Media tradition. It's about 30 minutes and is done mostly on the side walk of State Street. Here's footage of the event from last
What's the going rate for a brand new, slightly used public library?
Remember I posed that question last year after Media borough council told us they'd be giving a $1,000,000 donation and a awkwardly explained loan for $1.5 million to the Media/UP Library? To be exact, I asked it on Friday, December 5th (2015 at 3:12p EST). Well, if you didn't see January's borough council meeting, you probably have no idea how bad this deal is turning out to be. I'll post a special report on this next week.
No interest rate, no payback schedule, no recourse for non-payment, no due diligence towards payback ability, etc, etc, etc. When pressed, he did have the solicitor state that the borough would take ownership of the library if the loan wasn’t or couldn’t be paid back – Gee, ya think?. Not sure what the going rate is for a used library, but this is a bad policy and a bad loan. Period.

Are this week's rumors true that a Victory BrewPub is interested in occupying part of the vacated Towne House Restaurant property? It's possible, but we'll have to wait and see what shakes out. With this location, anything could happen. Stay tuned!

When the Towne House was sold last year, there was speculation as to what would happen to the liquor license. Well, yesterday there was a new application posted on the Towne House property listing 117 Veterans Square as the new applicant.
