We’ve been hearing from more and more friends and readers that they’d like to know where we’re going each week so they can join us. We get invited to events, hear about fun exhibits and are interested in lots of different places all the time. Here’s what is on our radar this week. We can’t guarantee that we’ll go to all these places but there’s a good chance we’ll be at some of them. Support local arts or get outside and do something with us!

Saturday, December 17th at 8pm, Zupko’s Tavern, Dunellen
Last year a group of local musicians got together to host first annual AROSE SUCH A CLATTER charity concert. Partnering with the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation, we were able to raise almost $2000 in cash donations, as well as a truck load of toy donations, to help provide a cheerful holiday for those in need. This year we are looking to top the success we had in 2015. Featuring the same excellent and eclectic line-up as last year, as well as adding some new surprises, there is sure to be something for everyone.
The details: Saturday December 17th, doors at 7pm, show starts at 8.
Admission is $5 OR a donation of a new, unwrapped toy. ALL proceeds go directly to Toys for Tots.
