Two new restaurants opened in our area...

Two new restaurants opened within the last month, bringing more ethnic and exotic cuisine to our area!

Saffron Indian Kitchen, a new restaurant that opened recently in downtown Ambler, brings North and South Indian cuisine to our area. This is a new location for Rahul Bhatia's Bala Cynwyd BYOB, in the former La Cava space. Those who have been there recently that I know say it is the best Indian food in the area!
60 East Butler Ave Ambler P.A.19002 Phone: 215 - 540 - 0237

Pho and Beyond, a Vietnamese cafe at 47 Easton Rd. in Willow Grove, next to Weinrich's Bakery. Check out their menu. "At PHO & BEYOND, you will be able to dine on “authentic” Vietnamese cuisine based on family’s secret recipes, techniques, and skills that have been handed down to us.  Here, you will enjoy our food in a friendly, warm, and relaxing atmosphere." From what I have read the restaurant is very clean, nice, and the food very food.

Rapunzel's Wants To Give Back!

Rapunzel's Wants To Give Back!

"We are asking our clients to let us know about families that are in need this year. We know this economy has been tough on a lot of people, some of which can't afford a Christmas this year. We will be sending gift certificates for services (hair cuts, massages, facials, manicures and pedicures) to spread some Christmas joy this year. If you know of a family who is struggling, please send us an email with their name, address, and a brief description of the hardship."

Such a great idea and so nice of this salon! Please help them with this and submit anyone you think could use some extra cheer.

Free events this weekend at the Little Treehouse

We're delighted to be able to let you know about a couple of great events at The Little Treehouse this weekend brought to us by local Philadelphia talent. Both are free with admission, and remember, if you stay for dinner in their new restaurant, there is no admission fee after 5pm.


The Little Treehouse will partner with Enchantment Theatre Company for a story-style presentation from their stage show Harold & The Purple Crayon, which will be playing at The Prince Theater December 2 through January 3.

Sip some hot chocolate, but don't get tucked in too tight... this is story-time Enchantment-style! Featuring silly puppets and lively audience participation, this imaginative telling of Harold and the Purple Crayon puts YOU in the center of the story. Let your imagination run wild as you draw along with Harold and watch your drawings come to life! Story Time will be immediately followed by a hands-on crafts activity.


If you enjoyed the short version of Harold and the Purple Crayon, why not go see the stage show? A special discount of $2 per ticket is available for Little Treehouse customers. For tickets call 215 893 1999 and mention the following promotional code: LTH09, or visit the Enchantment Theater Company website:


Poppy’s Pants centers around a group of doll characters, who you and your children will meet when Melissa Conroy reads from this enchanting story . “When I first started making dolls, I discovered that half the fun of it was giving each a story” she says. “I feel as though a doll is not finished until I write up a personality description for it. I knew my dolls could become characters in a book, and I just had to find out what direction the book would take”. Come meet Penelope, a big-hearted doll who mends a hole in her grandfather’s khakis, and hear her tale. You and your children are sure to be delighted


We'd also like to remind you about this event (free with admission) Please note that we can only accommodate 15 children for this activity, so you may wish to call or e-mail to reserve a spot.

And finally, join us in Decmenber for these weekly fun events--both free with admission:


We look forward to seeing you soon!
