Celebrate Fall With Oktoberfest at The Community Chest


Worth the short trip to Englewood

This fall, join The Community Chest for an evening of fun at the third annual Oktoberfest at The Community Chest on Thursday, October 18.  This special event will be held at the Englewood Field Club, located at 341 Engle Street in Englewood, New Jersey, from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

Admission to Oktoberfest at The Community Chest is $100 per ticket, and millennials (ages 21 to 30) are admitted for $40 a ticket.  Group rates for ten tickets are also available for $800.  Each ticket purchase includes a great selection of craft beers sponsored by The Alementary Brewing Co., a light dinner and delicious fare prepared in Bavarian style.  A live auction offers culinary and other opportunities, a raffle, and prizes.  This year, a wine pull is a new addition to the Oktoberfest.  Everyone who purchases a wine pull ticket will win a bottle of wine.

The event introduces the nonprofit organization’s launch of its 2018-2019 Annual Campaign.  The funds raised support area nonprofit organizations addressing a range of issues, including health and mental health, hunger, arts programming, the environment, and volunteerism.  These organizations provide social, cultural, recreational, and educational services to local residents in need of all ages hailing from eastern Bergen County.

via Amy Wicks at Laurel & Wolf – When it comes to home design, we love a good mood board, and we’re all for collecting inspirational images on Pinterest, but nothing can replace the ease of working with an interior designer when you want to see a room come together fast (and on a budget!)

Here’s why: our designers have access to the best pricing–thanks to Laurel & Wolf’s longstanding relationships with all the best retailers and wholesalers–and they have years of experience in creating spaces that are deeply personal to their clients.

With this in mind, we asked a few of our favorite designers if they would be willing to spill their best design secrets; the hacks they use time and again, when they want to do a quick room makeover.


Interior designer Lori Evans suggests honing in on one or two areas in your space. Love color? Paint one wall your favorite color and let everything pop! Love texture? Create a statement wall with some appeal. “Wood strips from your local home improvement store, wallpaper with some texture and fake brick paneling can enhance your room and make everything look richer,” she said.

Harvest Moon Beach Fire


On Sunday evening, September 23, the staff of the Palisades Interstate Park in New Jersey will invite the public to join them at a riverside fire on one of the park’s old bathing beaches on the Hudson. The fire will take place in front of Alpine Pavilion at Alpine Picnic Area and Boat Basin from 6 to 9 PM. All are welcome to come to the informal program, and to bring a chair or blanket to sit on — and some refreshments to enjoy. Guitars or other instruments are also welcome.

The fire will be too large and hot for cooking marshmallows, but a second, smaller fire will be set up for that purpose.

Algonquin Indians and American colonists called the full moon closest to the Autumnal equinox the “Harvest Moon” because it occurs near the peak of the harvest, allowing farmers to work into the night by the light of the moon. Corn, squash, such as pumpkins, and beans — the “three sisters” of the Native American harvest — are ready for gathering around this time. The full moon should be visible by a little before 7 o’clock as it rises above the hills across the river at Yonkers. High tide will occur near the time the program ends — and will help the staff to safely clean the remains of the fire from the riverbank.

The area is accessible from the park’s Alpine entrance at Alpine Approach Road, off U.S. Route 9W about half a mile north of Closter Dock Road, or from the Palisades Interstate Parkway at Exit 2. (Click here for detailed directions.) A flashlight is recommended for the walk from the parking area to the beach and back (about 200 yards each way). Restrooms are available near the site of the fire. For additional information about the program, or to confirm if weather seems questionable, visitors can call 201-768-1360 ext. 108.
