Definitely a place I want to check out. Maybe on my next trip to the Reading Terminal Market, I'll swing over.

I can't find the restaurant thread, but this is great news for Brewerytown, which needs more food options.

Brewerytown Food Hall will bring 7 eateries under one roof
https://www.inquirer.com/food/restau...-20230125.html

The Brewerytown neighborhood will get a mammoth food hall this spring, featuring dishes from Glu Hospitality’s seven concepts.

Brewerytown Food Hall, on the ground floor of the Lofts at Brewerytown at 31st and Master Streets, will take the space that was an Acme Markets distribution center before it was retrofitted in 2016 as Flying Fish Crafthouse and later was a short-lived pub called Hops. A March opening is planned, with dinner, happy hour, and weekend brunch.

Here's hoping Glu succeeds where its predecessors have failed, for it looks like this location has been a space that eats restaurants, much like the restaurant space in the Academy House has been ever since Marabella's shut down.

I saw a social media post from Suburban Square yesterday, and the plan is very much active. Planned opening Summer 2023.

Never heard of Rutter's before but I am not sure we have any convenience stores with alcohol? I've been to Turkey Hills that had beer, but none around here.



As an aside, when traveling outside of the PA it is just strange to see gas stations that sell Yellow Tail.

This sounds awesome! I'll definitely check it out when it opens. Good for Brewerytown.

I knew they were expensive but I just checked their website. Yowzers. Who doesn't want to spend 7k for a chair and ottoman? Pro tip, if you want something modernish, West Elm is a much better bet.

I've long referred to that chain as Design Beyond Reach.

West Elm is aimed at the segment of the market that can afford something better than Ikea but still couldn't dream of affording Design Within Reach.

Target, FWIW, goes after this market as well with a wide range of products it labels as "Design for All."

I've noticed a wide range in quality with West Elm. Some of their "wood" furniture is basically nice IKEA, yeah. But I have some upholstered furniture that I am very happy with. Makes sense, same could be said by their parent company, Potter Barn. Furniture is one of those things I firmly believe you get what you pay for, unless its super urgent, save your money and buy quality.
