It Really Does Take a Village
In my neck of the woods, Princeton gets all the restaurant glory. But these days I’m enamored of my (new) home base of Lawrenceville. So I was honored when the local non-profit, Lawrenceville Main Street, asked me to be part of its premier annual event, A Night in the Village, which is happening this coming Sunday, October 1st. The weather forecast is for a beautiful fall day and evening, so if you don’t have dinner plans, please meet up with me and a few hundred other locals as we restaurant-hop through 11 outstanding eateries for tastings of food and beer, first at 4:30 and then again at 6:30 pm. All the details here.
We’ll also be reporting live on facebook and twitter during the event!

I guarantee that their answers, here in the September 27 issue of U.S. 1,will surprise you.
