Summer Fun Day: Pier Village, Long Branch

One of my dearest friends now lives in Texas.  She still misses New Jersey and tries to make a trip to the East coast once a year.  When she visits Jersey my friends and I try to coordinate day trips here and there.  One of our favorite things to do is head south to spend a […]

Jersey Mike’s now open in Chatham

Do you get an occasional craving for a good east coast Jersey sub?  Every so often I just gotta have one!  Never did go for the “italian meat lover” combo, I’ve always preferred turkey or roast beef.

I’M SO CONFUSED!
