Outside Jersey City
  • On Tuesday, 10/23, join The Lighthouse in Hoboken for a fundraiser offering cocktails, light fare, and live music. The suggested donation is $50 and the money raised will go towards providing housing and other resources for refugees and immigrants recently released from detention centers in the surrounding area. 
  • Tony Boloney's has started carrying Sicilian slices. They're serving them at both their Hoboken and Atlantic City locations. 
  • The Division of ABC (Alcoholic Beverage Control) announced that it would suspend it's controversial ruling on limiting how many events and what kind of activities could happen at tasting rooms of craft breweries until they could investigate and work with the necessary stakeholders further. The initial ruling limited the amount of events a craft brewery could have in their space, the number of "themed" or activity nights they were allowed, and how many off-site events they could participate in, based on the argument that craft breweries shouldn't be allowed the same privileges as bars; however, the restrictions put in place were considered excessively prohibitive, amounting to nothing more than legislative red tape and would likely lead to a negative impact on the craft beer industry.
