@notwithit

I'd say outside the city center there is not much selvedge game...but I could be wrong.  Its been a while since I spotted a selvedge stripe or those vintage McCoy hoodie pockets anywhere!

As I mentioned, I know there's a couple of shops on South St. That sell 3sixteen or RgT but there's nothing retail for IH or Strike Gold or other topnotch brands.  I don't know if I'm happier with it this way or not.  If we had a SE or BiG im Center City I'd be in bad trouble!! ; )

I'm absolutely down for a meet, Center City or just outside near me would be fine.


Un saludo!

@steelworker @ROman @derivative666 @thomasnunnally @Jett129 @babyknight @twin @notwithit @dcg - sorry for not updating earlier but as you may have noticed, my husband's buggered off fishing again, leaving me holding the fort!

I have booked the Plumsteadville Inn (http://plumsteadvilleinn.com/) at 12 noon for brunch on Sunday 1st May - it's a little way out of town, so if you haven't already done so please check out the location on their website and let me know for sure if you'll come (and how many of you) - I'd like to be able to give the restaurant firm numbers a few days in advance.  Looks as if we'll be a group of between 15 and 20 which will be perfect.

For the Saturday evening, as some of us are staying downtown, I'm liking the idea of Frankford Hall (http://www.frankfordhall.com), it's large and casual and no reservations are required (although I have written to them saying we'll be a group of around 15-20 to see if I can reserve tables).  Again, I know travelling into central Philly may be a drag for some of you, so let me know if this works and if you think you can make it.

Getting very excited about seeing everyone - and meeting some new faces!

@StarsSuck - sorry, missed you off the list on previous post - I did look at Victory Brewing (looks great), thanks for the suggestion.  Hope you can join us on Saturday evening or for Sunday brunch!

Frankford Hall does look good.  Kinda sad that I'll be missing this one, but I'll be attending Caroline's rainbow unicorn birthday party on Saturday, which obviously is going to be the blowout of the year.

@Madame Buttonfly - thanks for the invite!  Frankford Hall is a cool little beer garden style spot and absolutely worth a visit.  While I don't think I can make it Sat evening, I would love to join you all at the Plumstead on Sunday!  Media is not very far from where I live in West Chester and that sounds like a delightful way to spend a Sunday morning!


Un saludo!

A Rainbow Unicorn Party?!  :-*  :-*  :-*

 I'm GREEN with envy, sounds A-MAZ-ING!  Wish I could be in two places at once, I'd crash Caroline's party for sure (poor kid)

Yes, I think I stumbled across it whilst doing extensive research... or maybe someone suggested it to me... can't quite remember...

@StarsSuck - that will be great, let me know if you'll be on your own or with partner/friend so that I can confirm numbers to the restaurant (no urgency)  :)

@ROman. I can't believe the Media Plumstead Inn closed-it had been there forever.  I also can't believe that there are two Plumstead Inns within twenty miles! Haha. Thanks for the heads up!

And @Madame Buttonfly I will follow up soon on the guest! 



Un saludo!

Ah, yes - I remember now!   ;)

Good luck with the house-hunting, sounds like a lovely part of the country.

Bonnie and I are definitely in for Sat. night. Looks great. Love Bavarian pretzels. Saw a potential after dinner activity,which is the Chinese Lantern Festival in Franklin Sq. The problems are you have to have tickets($17)and you have to buy them for a committed time period. Not sure if it sells out and if you can be spontaneous and just go. It closes at 11,so depending on what time we got out of dinner etc.--Jett

@Jett129 I would love to see this - I thought we'd start quite early on Saturday evening at Frankford Hall (6pm?), especially as there may be a few people who just want to come for a quick drink and get away, so let's see who else is interested.  Maybe we could go for the 10pm-11pm session?  I'd be happy to book tickets in advance.
