POSTPONED: The Glen Ridge Kitchen Tour, Now March 2013

Update: The tour has been postponed until March 2013:

After speaking with all parties involved in making this event a success, Glen Ridge has decided to postpone the Kitchen Tour that was scheduled for this Sunday November 18th. The majority of the homes and sponsors featured in the tour have just gotten their power back. Out of respect to these home owners and business sponsors, the Kitchen Tour will be re-scheduled March 24th at 12pm.

During this time of turmoil, we hope you can get back to a sense of normalcy. So many of us are now focusing our time and efforts on providing relief for those towns most impacted by the storm. We hope to see you in a few months when we can enjoy a fun escape for a few hours on the tour!

For any inquiries, please email us

If you are planning a renovation on your home or looking for catering for special events this holiday season, please take a look at our for information on our sponsors and chefs. We are so thankful that they are hanging on for this bumpy ride.

  1. Please do something else. GR has the worst fundraisers. This tour, powder puff football, some other nonsense involving girls and manicures. It’s all just awful.

    Just my cents.

  2. Hey, lostnewyorker – please post your suggestions. Posting sour grapes helps no one. I’m a GR resident and am totally with you on the kitchen tour as a fundraiser to cross of the list, but what’s wrong with the others?

  3. I know that there are still places along the path of the hurricane and nor’easter without power, but I had no idea that anyone in Baristaville was still without power. A poster in another thread said a few days ago that the tales of “my disaster is worse than your disaster” does no one any good. But I haven’t heard of any houses in Glen Ridge being washed out to sea.

  4. Please consider cancelling this and asking the attendees to donate their ticket money to those who lost their homes in Hurricane Sandy. As a resident I’m embarrassed that this event is still going to go on.

  5. NNN….FYI…..The Glen Ridge Kitchen Tour was created as a means to raise money within the community for the specific goal of providing classroom materials needed by the public schools of GR. State funding has been drastically cut over time so the community looked for a way to help make up the gap. It is also an opportunity to showcase the work of local small businesses such as contractors, interior design & decorators & caterers to mention a few.
