Happy Hour in Bergen County

We arrived early,,by 5/530 and it was empty. By the time 7pm rolled around it started to get busy. It was a mixed crowd,,,some families, some couples. I even saw a few young children but not many. And it seemed like there were a bunch of singles sitting at the bar. Definitely a hot spot for a friday nite. The bar/lounge has couches and drapes and dim lighting....its romantic if you are looking for a date night....

Happy Hour in Bergen County

The Office happy hour discounts some beers and martinis or margaritas. We usually get a few drinks and the hot wings (which were discounted for happy hour). McCormicks seems to change their happy hour alot but we always enjoy the food. There arent alot of drink specials, however. I think one wine, one beer, and one mixed drink. The bar offers $1.95 Happy Hour appetizer menu (and some of the appys are a little more). But the prices are super inexpensive. We just recently went to Chakra and they have a big sign outside that says 'happy hour'...but when we went inside the waitress said, we dont really have a happy hour. Just lounge food (smaller portions) and the house wine is discounted as well as I think one beer. No food specials. But we still had a good time.

Wild Salmon Salad Sandwiches
From The Six O’Clock Scramble cookbook and e-newsletter by Aviva Goldfarb. For more family-friendly recipe’s order Aviva’s cookbook online.
About 6 servings
A quick and healthy no-cook meal, these sandwiches are also fun to eat on a busy night. We topped them with sliced tomatoes and tortilla chips for extra crunch! Serve them with celery sticks dipped in peanut butter.
1/4 cup reduced fat mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon honey2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (about ½ a lemon
)1 can (15 oz.) wild Alaskan pink salmon, drained (can used “boneless & skinless” or “regular”)
1 cup finely chopped celery (about 2 stalks)
6 hamburger/sandwich buns, whole wheat or white
In the measuring cup used to measure the mayonnaise, combine the mayonnaise, mustard, honey and lemon juice. In a medium bowl, mix the salmon, celery and dressing ingredients. Put a scoop of the salmon salad in each bun and eat them cold.

Venue needed for 50th Wedding Anniversary

Just curious...What location did you go with?>

The Tides of North Haledon has a second room downstairs that fits 100. The going rate is about $60pp for a non-wedding event...but if you choose a Friday or Sunday you could probably get it for $50..including beer and wine.

Happy Hour in Bergen County

How about Teak on the Hudson in Hoboken. During the week they offer a 1/2 price menu. Great food / great ambiance. Or maybe BLUE MOON, there is one in Englewood and Woodcliff Lake. I know a few people who are a fan of their drinks and specials.

Best Pizza in N.J.

Marios in Maywood on West Pleasant Ave has a great Grandma's pizza...The slice is rectangular like a Sicilian, but half as thick. And Mangiamo! in Paramus on RT 17 (NOT MAggianos) has a great White Bruschetta Pizza. It is a delight. Also try Italian Touch Deli in Washington Twp, its also a favorite for a standard pie...Monday & Tuesday Pizza: $7.45. Gotta love a good deal.

Private party for 45 BYOB in Northern NJ ???

I am throwing a family dinner for 45 this Spring/Summer. We prefer BYOB and we are open to different types of food. I'd prefer a private room. Looking to spend under $45 per person.

Where have you recently gone to a dinner party? Any ideas?

Easter Brunch Anyone?

Check out this link for NJ brunch spots:

http://njmg.typepad.com/foodblog/2007...

If you are looking for something casual try Cafe Winberie Ridgewood. It can get pretty busy but its a nice spread...not huge like some of these, but yummy.

And something unique might be blue moon in englewood and wyckoff. Not your typical buffet fare.........

baby shower - Northern NJ?

How many people? Ive been to brunch at Cafe Winberie in Ridgewood for an anniversary party--but it wasnt a private room. There is also the Glen Rock Inn, or The Porter House Steak House Sunday Brunch Buffet in Montvale. For Only ($19.95/Person) Incl. Unlimited Oj, Mimosas, Tea & Coffee, etc. There is also the Woodcliff Lake Hilton, but I think its pricey. Or the Sheraton in Mahwah.

Superlative food in Bergen County?

We also love Casual Havana in Hackensack. And we love a little tiny place called Rudy's in Cliffside Park. Ive also heard Simply Vietnamese in Tenafly is great but I tried to go there and they were booked for the whole night. Now we love Mangiamos in Paramus, next to the Gap and 5 below. Great italian food. And our favorite mexican is Fiesta Mexico in Orangeburg NY...not Bergen but close. Wednesday is Bang Bang Shrimp day at Bonefish Grill in Paramus and 1/2 price drinks till 630 which is also a plus. And McCormicks and Shimicks is prob the best/most diverse happy hour ive ever seen. I also love SamDan in Cresskill. The shepards salad is always a crowd favorite as well as the hummus and lamb. Best greek is Taste of Greece in River Edge NJ! I could eat their gyros every night. But for something a little fancier their specials are always mouth watering.
