Moving for peanuts
One of the advantages to our new location is our proximity to Reading’s great restaurants. The oldest and most famous of these is Jimmie Kramer’s Peanut Bar. Our good friends Harold and Michael Leifer who own the Peanut Bar invited our entire staff to a lunch in the private room called “Harold’s Hideaway.” They even had a special “Welcome To The Neighborhood” menu for us!
One time, when we were searching for a location, one of the realtors helping us asked me to define what an acceptable location was. “Well,” I said, “I guess we want to be downtown, which would mean any place within walking distance of the Peanut Bar.” I think it always amused Michael that we had such scientific site selection criteria.
But our lunch was a welcome respite from the unpacking frenzy and we’re grateful to our friends at the Peanut Bar for their kind welcome.
