Blocker’s celebrates one year in business

Blocker’s Coffeehouse, Catasauqua’s premier traditional coffee spot, celebrated its anniversary at the beginning of September.

“We are happy to be in business for this first year and want to thank everyone in the community who has patronized our business,” said Vicki Bartholomew, who owns the shop, located at 309 Front St.

Blocker’s is next to Gas House Dance Hall, so the celebration included entertainment from Jet Weston and the Atomic Ranch Hands.

Sophie, from Henna Chakra, was there to spice things up with a few temporary tattoos.

The coffee shop and the adjoining dance hall are getting some notoriety. There are now regularly scheduled events for several nights during the month, along with special dance events.

Time to wander down to Front Street and take a look at the offerings!
