A big night out in Ambler

One doesn’t need to travel into Philadelphia to have a really nice evening out. There are a lot of options in the suburbs, every one just as pleasing as the next.
But I have to hand it to Ambler. What a great job the borough has done offering a big night out on the small town.
Finding a quality place to eat downtown is no problem. (Shameless Promotion Alert): There is the Trax Restaurant and Café, The Shanachie Irish Pub, Bridget’s Steakhouse, From the Boot and Dettera Restaurant and Wine Bar.
In addition, there are two wonderful entertainment venues in the Act II Playhouse and the Ambler Theater.
For The Blonde Accountant’s birthday we went to dinner at Dettera’s. It was our first time there, and really, it was superb. The food and service was as good as anything one would find in Philadelphia.
We then went to see “The Story of My Life” at Act II. What a wonderfully written and acted play in an absolutely first-rate venue. The play’s run has been extended through this weekend, so you’ve still got a chance to see some quality theater.
There are a number of restaurants in Montgomery County that we enjoy, too numerous to mention here. And we’ve long been fans of the Sellersville Theater 1894 and the Keswick Theater in Glenside for quality entertainment.
There really aren’t enough adjectives to describe the opportunities we have here right in our own back yard. But this time, special kudos goes out to Ambler and what it has to offer.
And even better, I didn’t pay an arm and a leg to park for the evening and after the festivities ended, I was home in 10 minutes.
That’s just beautimous.
