This Week in Mayfair (12/19/11)

Countdown to Christmas is on! Did you read our previous post with all of our gift suggestions that you can find right on Frankford Ave? Well, READ IT and understand that you are doing the following things:
  • Saving the environment since you're not driving all over the Philadelphia area.
  • Shopping the local little haunts for unique gifts and supporting the Mayfair economy.
  • Wearing skinny jeans while sipping a tall soy caramel macchiato latte with no foam and extra extra. No you are not!! Skip that. Too pretentious.
Plus you have more time to decorate, wrap, and bake cookies. Your house smells great!! Got any extra? Cause we REALLY like cookies.....

So what's the buzz around Mayfair? I'll tell you! I can't shut up about it even if i tried!

Mike at The Perzel Agency is running a special starting today (12/19/11). He's giving away a $15.00 Gas Card once a week and a $150.00 Lowes Card at the end of January (each quote will receive an entry to win). You will also receive a PA Powerball ticket just for getting a quote on auto insurance. For any member of the MBA or their employees, Mike will also give them a $5.00 gas card in addition to everything above (SWEET!). However you MUST mention the Mayfair Business Association to receive the $5.00 Gas card. I suggest that you also have to sing "We Wish you a Merry Christmas" to Mike while hopping on one foot when going in for your quote. But let's just make that our little Christmas gift to Mike Perzel for being such a generous guy during the holidays...shhhhhh!

On Thursday evening (12/22/11), Scoats and the fine people at the Grey Lodge will be singing Christmas carols with local beer writer Lew Bryson ( from 7:30pm to 9pm. Lew, known for his deep hearty laugh, sings in his church choir. He's basically Santa if Santa was a brewery expert who can sing except he looks nothing like Santa and has no reindeer that we are aware of. Regardless, this will be a very jolly event with lots of Christmas beers on tap including Troegs Mad Elf, Sly Fox Christmas Ale, Great Lakes Christmas Ale, and many more.

And if you still need some more gifts Lew (aka Beer Santa) will be selling and signing copies of his books Pennsylvania Breweries and New Jersey Breweries. And there are always Grey Lodge gift cards and T-shirts for sale too.

On Sunday, Christmas Day, The Grey Lodge will be open Christmas night at 8pm but just the bar only. No food. So stuff your face prior to getting there to get your drink and merry on.

Remember the special that Freedom Credit Union is running until the end of December? No? You need to lay off the Christmas punch. I'll remind you.
Freedom Credit Union (4900 Princeton Ave) will give YOU $5 a month, a free debit card and free checking. For more details on this great special available through the month of December visit

Also, Gene at Santucci's Pizza, Lisa at BellaLisa Hair Studio and Antoinette at The Torresdale Flower Shop all wanted to make sure that you know they have gift cards/certificates for anyone who needs them! So go get 'em tiger!! They like Christmas song and dance numbers too...just sayin.

Have a holly, jolly one!
