Amazing Escape Room is a live-action game that tests your team-building skills with a challenging twist. There are a handful of locations around the state: Cherry Hill, Freehold, Princeton, Montclair, Paramus, Greenbrook and Red Bank. Before starting, the room has a set time limit of 60 minutes in order to make it more challenging. In addition, there are different “level” rooms based on skill. For example, the hardest rooms have an under 10 percent success rate while the easier rooms have a 20 percent success rate.
Stage Left Restaurant in New Brunswick is gearing up to celebrate their 25th anniversary. On top of that, the contemporary American steakhouse, owned by Francis Schott and Mark Pascal, recently underwent a renovation. The owners hired Alfano Renovations of Union County, N.J., and Dublin, Ireland-based Restless Design for a $200K-plus+ remodel of the dining rooms and bar. So what’s changed? New banquettes excude a clubby, yet comfy feel in the bar area (which is still centered by its 1930s vintage bar).
