A FALL FEST IN FIVE MINUTES (OF DRIVING TIME) OR LESS
We totally understand that with the commencement of the new school year, schedules are new, manic, and may not always allow for a drive out to the Country. For those craving all the amenities of the season, with 1/8th the commute, might we recommend The Greenwood Gardens: History and Harvest Celebration. Hope to see you there!
NEED A LITTLE DATE NIGHT INSPIRATION?
New Jersey Magazine recently rolled out their Top 25 Restaurants, and it should come as no surprise that reliable Maplewood favorites such as Verjus and Lorena’s were among the honorees. Not to be ignored are culinary newcomer, Common Lot, as well as Morristown’s Jockey Hollow Bar and Kitchen. Snag your reservation, quick!
