On Monday I had an adventure at the Brandywine River Museum in Chadds Ford, PA that I would like to share.   A long time friend of mine Denise and I planned to meet at the museum for lunch and to take in the holiday atmosphere being offered at the museum.  I arrived at the museum earlier than Denise so I decided to use the time to take a video of the Brandywine River from the path just up from the water's edge.  Camera in hand I stepped off the trail a few feet to get a better view of the river and as I was adjusting my camera, I started to slide...I was in mud that was frozen on top.... my movements, to control the sliding, just made me slide more into the thick mud... I had to stop myself from going head first in the cold water by falling backwards on my butt.  I was stuck in mud/muck...

One of the things I like about Mushrooms Cafe on Route 1/Baltimore Pike (Hickory Hill Rd) is that it is so close - it's a fun stop if you are out antiquing, stopping by the Chadds Ford Winery or visiting the world renown Brandywine River Museum, home to generations of artists or Longwood Gardens. Look for the "mushrooms" sign next to the Brandywine River Antiques Market, this is a place for some local flavor and great expresso. Right now the speciality is mushroom soup and if you know anything about our area, you know that everyone has a recipe for it. You can also enjoy mushroom quiche, a grilled Portabella sandwich with red peppers and mozzarella, and pick up a basket to take home or give as a gift. You might even take home some mushroom delicacies or bottled chai    Great for breakfa...

The Brandywine River Museum in Chadds Ford PA is offering free museum admission for Sunday mornings from 9:30 - 12:00 through September. Recently I completed a series of posts on Free Summer Activities in the local area.  Since then, I have received several recommendations of additional activities - most of which will be explored next summer. This month, however, you may want to take advantage of the Brandywine River Museum's free September Sunday Mornings.  For the next two Sundays, you can still take advantage of free museum admission from 9:30-12:00.  In addition to the extensive continuing exhibitions of the NC Wyeth, Andrew Wyeth, and Jamie Wyeth works, this will include the new exhibition of Jamie Wyeth - Seven Deadly Sins .  You can also visit the Intrepid and Inventive: Illustra...

Located in the southwestern corner of Delaware County PA, Chadds Ford really combines the best of Delaware County, Chester County, and New Castle County. Originally known as Birmingham Township, on December 11, 1996 the township officially changed it's name to Chadds Ford.  This historic township was named after John Chad who, with the county's urging and help, ran a ferry over the Brandywine in this area starting in 1717.  The township later hosted a critical battle during the Revolutionary War when the Battle of the Brandywine occurred just to the east of the river.  On September 11, 1777, 11,000 soldiers under Washington were defeated by 18,000 British and Hessian Troops as they advanced into Pennsylvania. More recently, the area has been renowned as the foundation of the Brandywine ...

Since 1997, The Gables at Chadds Ford, has received rave reviews from food critics ranging from the Philadelphia Inquirer to Main Line Today to zagats and for good reason. The elegant setting , a converted 1800s barn with contemporary decor, couldn't be more convenient if you are making the holiday rounds to area cultural attractions like Longwood Gardens or the Brandywine River Mueu. The eclectic American menu incorporates French and ASian influences. You can enjoy live jaz on the weekend evenings in the bar area, which also is a great spot for lunch and just to watch the world whizz by on Route 1. http://www.thegablesatchaddsford.com Owner Jack McFadden is a well-known restauranteur in the area so when in West chester, check out the Turk's Head Inn.

If you're looking for an off-the beaten path fun getaway this holiday season, maybe lunch or a cup of tea, remember Simon Pearce on The Brandywine at the crossroads of  Rtes 52 and 100 (a.k.a. Creek Rd) Here's phenomenal views of the river through enormous windows, a comfortable bar with mid-afternoon menu, and glass-blowing downstairs. Yes, glass blowing - with a gorgeous shop upstairs in case you've forgotten someone on your gift list. Truly unique housewares and other hand-crafted goodies. I've been here for elegant dinners and special events and the food never disappoints. True to its New England roots (there is another facility in Vermont, and they have a catalogue) the cheddar soup is outstanding  as were their crabcakes.  Sunday Brunch is a real  treat . 610-793-0948.

This continues my report of how Michelle and I are doing generating leads in our local Genuardi's grocery store in front of my long-time bank Wilmington Savings Fund Society (WSFS). It has been a spectacular way to reconnect with our sphere and meet new people. Here's the Best Buy list - page 2 (continued from an earlier post) for the Unionville-Chadds Ford School district. Would love to hear what others are doing that's off the beaten track. Please email me your ideas or give me a call at 610-764-3062. Also, note that our best buys are not JUST KW listings, we are encouraging other realtors to contact us with listings they consider best buys.
