Have you ever heard the one about the cobbler’s kids and how they have no shoes? Sometimes what we do all day long doesn’t always translate well to our home life. If you’re planning events from 9am until whenever, the last thing you want to do is plan something in your personal life. It’s November, which means that ultimate event—Thanksgiving—is right around the corner. If you haven’t figured out what you’re doing yet, or just want to take a break this year, our friends at Diaz-Schloss pulled together a cheat sheet of a few NJ restaurants that are serving turkey and all of the trimmings. And the best part? All you have to do is make a reservation.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Sunday recommended that all gatherings of more than 50 people be cancelled or postponed for the next eight weeks, in order to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19. The recommendation covers events like parades, concerts, festivals, conferences, sporting events, weddings and more.

 

Downtown Newark’s Robert Treat Hotel has completed the renovations of its Crystal Ballroom. And befitting a place named the Crystal Ballroom? A three-tier chandelier with 30,000 hand-cut and polished crystals, of course! To top it all off, the chandelier is equipped with technology that enables the staff to change the chandelier’s color. For a recent political event, they used what else – red, white and blue.
