Ok. I'm not a fan of the place, but some are. I have $200 worth of gift certificates that I"ll trade for $100 of Dilworthtown Inn.

anyone interested?

    Good luck! Maybe try them on ebay? (Wondering why anyone would buy $200 in gift certificates from the Concordville Inn.)

      Well, we have about 9 acres of land and let deer hunters in. (along with neighbors on both sides and across the road so they get about 20 acres in total) They give all of us a GC each year: sometimes Dilworthtown, sometimes others.

      And Cindy...i think you & I discussed the C Inn in another thread, so you know why I want to trade. Guess you don't want them!<grin>

        *CHUCKLE* No, I'll happily pass on that "great" offer. Maybe you could talk them into parting with a few venison steaks, instead. And then send them over here, where a herd of about 9 or 10 pass through the back of my property twice a day.

      Jeez.....still no takers? Maybe one of two things have happened:

      1) The economy is much better around here than i thought! ( a 2for1 deal..sheesh!)
      2) my fellow chowhounders are much more discerning than I thought (of course you are!)

      Oh well, I turn 59 tomorrow........probably will go blow at least one of these on dinner (hope they have good - and expensive - bottles of wine

          I wouldn't exactly call that a twofer, FFC. Happy B'day just the same.

          BTW, as I passed by Hank's Place a little while ago, I noticed a sign that said something like, "Good bye to Andy, our friend and neighbor. You'll be missed." Was that your famous neighbor, Andy Wyeth, they were referring to? I hadn't heard or read anything about him recently. There was nothing in the Kennett Paper yesterday. Must be VERY recent.

            Yes, Andy passed away in his sleep ovenight. Hence, nothing in the papers, but stuff all over the net. And Hank's won't be the same. And the Brandywine Inn is no longer so there are no nights there to share a quaff as he and Frolic Weymouth and others invented all sorts of great "schemes".

            i haven't spoken to Betsey, but folks say all is well.

              It was in all the headlines yesterday evening. He was QUITE the local legend.

          Maybe try selling the gift certificates on craigslist? I see people selling gift certificates for less than the face value regularly on craigslist. Or, donate them to your place of worship, animal shelter or other charity as an auction fundraising item. At least you can get a write-off for that!

            Ok, decided to blow some of these and went for lunch. Although we may have been the youngest there at 2:00, it was ..........surprisingly ...........nice I had a rib sandwich and the best part was the fries were hot and tasty. My wife decided on comfort food and had the chopped sirloin, which she liked. Service was Meh, the tables had white table cloths, and the the drinks were so/so. There is, of course, no view unless you love watching the trucks on Rte 1.

            It's a simple menu................and i guess one of the reasons it's not a favorite of mine is that 90% of the "interesting entrees" have something to do with crabmeat. Neither my wife nor I is a fan of crabmeat.

            So, anyway, I still have a lot of credits ($175) there, it's ok for simple and basic

              You'd probably be the youngest folks there at any time before 8:00, with Maris Grove just across the road.

                You could walk around the restaurant and randomly hand out gift certificates to the "regular" diners? You would be hailed as a hero.
