First up, I have two great sites for you. Even if you aren’t New Jerseyans, you may find some useful info on the Garden State here. They’ve been listed in my ever-expanding blog roll for awhile now.
(*I encourage you to check out some of my blogroll links, you might find something you like! There’s something for everyone listed from food sites to Disney sites to Jane Austen sites (yes, NERD alert) and more.)
First up, for all you NJ foodies (or those who like to eat in NJ!) we have Jersey Biters at http://jerseybiters.ning.com/. This is a social network site where you can discuss food, dining, cooking, and food events in the Garden State. From the creator of the food blog, Jersey Bites.
Another social network site dedicated to NJ is Bayshore Friends, http://bayshorefriends.ning.com/. Bayshore Friends is dedicated to connecting those of us in the Bayshore area of NJ (which encompasses the Amboys down to Sandy Hook and all the towns in between like Keyport, Union Beach, Keansburg, Middletown ) or those interested in the Bayshore area of NJ!! We discuss all sorts of things there, including yes, FOOD!!
Another finally for our last bit of news…My favorite NJ restaurant, Trinity in Keyport, will be having a Latin Night! It will be held next Saturday, May 3rd and will feature Latin dance music all night. Starting at approximately 9pm or later, complimentary dance lessons from Shall We Dance Studios in Middletown, NJ, will be given every hour on the hour for about 20 minutes or so. You can learn to cha-cha, salsa, samba, tango, maybe more! You can turn it into a great night with great food and drink and some free dance lessons! No cover at the door!
