Food - August, 2003
Whenever a new
restaurant comes on the scene, after allowing a bit of time to work out
the kinks, we look forward to a lunch or dinner. We chose a midweek
lunch for our visit to this newly- opened establishment featuring
where else, but in Chatham New Jersey, is a fun spot where you are greeted by
smiling happy faces eager to serve you. The restaurant has the feel of
a small New York eatery, and if you enjoy southwestern food, this is the
place for you.
table enjoys taco chips and a spicy salsa. Our group ordered a variety
of offerings. The pinwheel Quesadilla was delicious as were the Burritos and
Southwestern wraps. The portions are very large and there certainly is
a wide variety of entrees to choose from.
the restaurant does not have a liquor license, you may bring your own or
enjoy one of the non-alcoholic offerings such as the Strawberry Banana
Palette Pleaser. These non-alcoholic beverages seemed to be a favorite
with the younger crowd who were enjoying their lunch.
we found Salsa Chatham to be a pleasant change-of-pace and will return some
evening for dinner. If you want to spice up your palate, give this new
restaurant a try.

Treasure - August, 2003
Step into Monmouth Park
Racetrack and step
into a great Jersey Treasure. The grounds at Monmouth are incredibly
well cared for and make visitors feel like they are at a resort. After
walking into the main building, I was struck by how well preserved and
maintained this facility is. The staff at Monmouth has gone to great
lengths to preserve the rich legacy of the park and has taken great care
not disturb the old-time feel of this rich daytime experience. Family-goers will be comforted with expansive grass areas and tables
Business- sponsored events can even have their very own large, fenced-in area
right beside the track, complete with large tables and outdoor grill. Monmouth is more of a park than a traditional
modern horse racing facility, perfect for family and corporate afternoons.
There is plenty of thoroughbred racing action to be experienced the way it
use to be and thankfully still is.
Monmouth Park has the distinction of being the first North American sporting
facility to offer luxury suites. The "Parterre Boxes" are
the most exclusive at the park requiring proper attire. The mix of
people who go to Monmouth Park are as diverse as our population, from all
walks of life and social status. They all come for one thing, which is
a great afternoon experience, from just beside the fence to way
atop the building. Monmouth Park is the resort of racing and a
distinguished Jersey Treasure.

Video Rental Pick:
CHICK - Rated PG-13 - Okay... okay...
we're not talking about rocket science here just THE HOT CHICK with Rob
Schneider. This brand of sophomoric humor does appeal to some people
and if you like a wacky comedy then check out this video. You won't
find any award-winning script writing or overly clever
technical work in this type of film. What you will find here is a lot of laughs especially
at the ridiculous premise of Rob Schneider as a woman. The only way to
judge a film of this type is on the old laugh-o-meter and this one scores
high on laughs. Chances are after a week of seeing this one you might
not remember much at all about it, but you will remember how much you laughed
and a good summertime laugh is always a healthy thing. If you don't feel
guilty about laughing at some mindless humor, then check this one out.
THE HOT CHICK also goes nicely as part
of a summertime double feature!
Clubs and Nightlife - August, 2003
46 in Clifton, New Jersey packs rock fans in on Wednesday nights.
A no cover charge policy? Whoever heard of such a thing?
Pub 46 offers no cover, no exceptions all the time. Even club-goers
from the 70's going to see a live band paid a cover charge back then! So
what's the deal with this place? The deal is a packed house, drink
specials, live music and a great time on Wednesdays. Many clubs are
pretty empty this night of the week but not Pub 46. If you are under
thirty this place offers a glimpse into how rock clubs were in New Jersey
not too long ago. If you are in your late thirties you might have
actually experienced the rock club heyday in New Jersey which helped usher
in such bands as Twisted Sister and White Tiger into mainstream rock.
Pub 46 has smartly and thankfully brought back to life the live Jersey rock
band scene in north Jersey. It's not exactly the same but it's very close. It's
astonishing that the younger crowd still likes this type of music, but then
it was never just about the music. The Jersey rock club has always
been about Jersey people, great music and great times. You are sure to
have a great time at Pub 46 on Wednesday nights.
