Pushing back against Ol’ Man Winter

January 21, 2011

It’s the end of the third week of January. It snowed again last night. It’s windy and bitterly cold out, and you might be thinking, “This is turning out to be a long winter. How am I going to survive?” Why not bundle up and head out to some of Pottstown’s fine restaurants this weekend to carve out some warm space and good memories with family and friends?

Feel like dancing away all that energy from being cooped up with kids who were home from school? Line up a sitter and call everyone you know, set the time, and crash The Brickhouse; they’ve got a dj every Friday and Saturday night.

You can also bust a move at Sunnybrook Ballroom with DJ Bruce Miller from 7-11 pm on Saturday night.

Get on Facebook and organize an impromptu and affordable “parents with kids” gathering at The Very Best. Or maybe it’s “dads with kids” or “moms with kids” so at least one of you can go the gym or run an errand or watch a basketball game in peace!

In the mood for sports, casual drinks, no fuss? Stop in at Jack Cassidy’s Irish Pub, Frankie & Johnnie’s or The Pourhouse.

For a more intimate dining experience, call ahead to Funky Lil’ Kitchen, Henry’s Cafe or Juan Carlos Fine Mexican to see if they can seat you.

Book groups, knitting groups, play groups – why not plan your next get-together at Churchills?

Are you or any of your kids a history buff? Check out this Sunday’s lecture by historian Dan Graham at Pottsgrove Manor (details on the calendar page). He’ll be talking about John Potts, Jr.: Ironmaster, Judge, Loyalist. Unlike the other children of John and Ruth Potts, this son supported the Crown during the American Revolution, and it cost him his property, wealth and standing in the community. The talk starts at 1 pm.

The key to breaking out of a mid-winter rut is to find an activity and food to share with people you love. With so many options close to home, it shouldn’t be hard to do. 🙂
