Diana Kahn, Swarthmore: I’m excited to see it. We pass by it every day, and we were so ready for the opening.

David Petner, Swarthmore: We live about a block away. We had a Pennsylvania Oatmeal stout, wine and cider, and they were all good.

Ginny Lang, Swarthmore: I’m very impressed. It’s over the top! It’s going to improve our quality of life.

Gretchen Shifflett, Swarthmore (right): I have excitedly been anticipating bringing my swim friends here on Monday nights! And my husband and I have been looking forward to having a dinner place we can walk to.

Lynn Whittaker, Devon: I have to stay in Swarthmore while my daughter is in swim practice at the college, so she didn’t have to twist my arm.

Terry Crain, Wallingford: I grew up in Nether Providence, and live in Wallingford, and I never thought I’d be sitting in a bar in Swarthmore. Right now there are Quakers who are spinning in their graves.

Paul Kelso (right) Swarthmore: It’s kind of surreal to be having my first drink in downtown Swarthmore, because I grew up 3 blocks from here, when drinking beer would mean running from the police.
