Restaurant Review: The Huddle (Sleepy Hollow, NY)

Our third bar visit of the day was thankfully the best one. Third time’s a charm, as they say. Since the first two were so disastrous, we debated even giving this place a chance at all. The goal was to come here for late night drinks and maybe a snack, before heading to a 24-hour…

Next to October, July is always an incredibly busy month for me because of the summer camps and teaching I do. Originally, I was going to put “Photo of the Day” on pause, but I’ve had a change of heart and will continue to try to get new images up every day. Cheers and enjoy…

A Quick Stop at Gaslight

This is not a review, just a quick piece to say that I have finally been to Gaslight in Atlantic Highlands. They have been around since 2014 and I have worked in town since 2011. I have always heard this was an ultra-hipster spot. The restaurant actually bears no name, simply a literal gaslight in…

A little drink before I bet and lose my customary $20 at the Ocean Downs Casino on the outskirts of Ocean City, Maryland. But hey, on the second night, I actually left ahead $7. Big winnings for me.

Fermented Musings: Sometimes You Get What You Pay For

As anyone who reads this column will know, I am a fan of The Macallan scotch. The 12-year has become my go-to imbibe not only for the flavors but affordability. At an average little over $50 a bottle, it isn’t necessarily cheap, but it’s not prohibitive at this stage of my life either. I have…

One Year of “Eating New Jersey”

Well, our one year anniversary is here. Eating New Jersey started on a whim. I had been Instagramming my food for years and started writing about restaurants on my personal blog. But because that site is such a mish-mosh of topics, I wanted to have a blog devoted entirely to food. I’d say we had…
