It's Media in Two Minutes, though with so many things going on, this may take us a little longer.
Ok, Let's Go!
March is Women's History Month
In recognition of this important month and all the women out there, I wanted to share an event being held March 21st at Neuman College - Women In Leadership. The lecture will include an All Star lineup of women CEO's from around the area. Neuman has a great leadership courses for those looking to develop their skills and abilities in these roles.
Pizza comes to the Plumstead
I never knew why they didn't have it before, but they've always had a pizza oven, which I'm sure is vintage by now. Who knew? Recently, the Plumstead Inn began including pizza pies on their menu. I'm not a big pizza guy, but I have to say this isn't bad at all. Thin crust, choice toppings and mysteriously non greasy. Are they on to something? They could be, so check it out and let me know. And in true Plumstead fashion, a bargain! $6.95 for 12" pie.
With Easter closing in, be sure to get you candy orders in to Bevans! And don't by a box of butter creams and leave them in your truck. You'll eat'em like popcorn, trust me.
House with a Pool!
We're not only getting a bigger "House," it's also coming with a pool. Yep, that's right, "House" restaurant will be taking over the dining facilities at Broomall Lake Swim Club. Check out their latest Facebook page regarding the announcement. I don't belong to BLCC, but I'm sure this will be welcomed news by members.
Media Planning Commission - Thank YOU!
The announcement last week about Wawa was pleasantly surprising news regarding the plannings commission's request to rezone the lot for this store. What's equally admirable, is the leadership and poise the Planning Commission showed with coming to a consensus and voting on this issue. This project still has a long way to go and is far from a done deal, but it's encouraging to see leadership and decisiveness for projects like this. People really took notice of this news. Check out the letter to the editor!
Buddy's Burger, Breast and Fries
Take your pick! From what I hear they are all good. No word on when the opening date is, but restaurants in Media typically open a few months after their papers are finalized. As for the milkshakes they are bringing to town, let me just say this, Front Street Fountain makes the best milkshake I've ever had! All in good fun, but looking forward to the big opening. Welcome to town, Buddy's!
I had no idea what that meant until this week, but it appears one is coming to Media along with a large selections of cigars. From initial reactions about this store, this is going to ruffle some feathers.
PACE ONE? Edgmont and Thornbury quietly taking on the restaurant scene
La Porta has made a name for itself and with as much as an hour long wait on a Saturday night, that didn't happen by chance. I think their food is some of the best around and it appears others think so too. Right around the corner you have Grace Winery. It's not a restaurant, but as close as you're going to get to Media's own Napa Valley....check it out on a Saturday. Recommendation: Sangria made on the premises.
What's also coming a long is the new restaurant that will be replacing the well known and closed Pace One. I don't have all the details yet, but it's happening with renovations well underway.
Edgmont Pharmacy......Wait, in Edgmont?!?!?!!
Since we're on the topic, I'll through in a bonus. Yes, I heard there was interest in bringing a box store pharmacy to the corner Middletown and Gradyville road. I also heard this weekend that the deal didn't get very far. The former Edgmont Fire House has been for sale for years, though nothing is going there yet.
