October Feast SignageThe first annual October Feast will be held at the Glen Ridge Women’s Club on October 20, 2014. October Feast is a Food, Beer and Wine tasting evening hosted by the Kiwanis Club of Glen Ridge.

Tastings will be provided by 20 nearby restaurants which will include main courses, appetizers, salads and desserts. A beer tasting will be hosted by the Glen Ridge Home Brewers Association and a wine tasting will be hosted by Fairway Markets. A local rum distiller will be present and non-alcoholic beverages will be served.

Participating restaurants include Egan & Sons, Fin Rawbar and Kitchen, Fitzgerald’s 1928, Fricassée French Bistro, Greek Taverna, Halcyon Brasserie, La Couronne Restaurant, Mac Attack Gourmet Cheesery, Salute Bistro and Stamna Greek Taverna. Desserts will be provided by Aromi Di Napoli, Jarets Stuffed Cupcakes and Miss Nicky’s Gourmet Toffee

More information about the event – including a full listing of restaurateurs and beverage providers – can be found on the October Feast web site at The web site also provides a form and PayPal link for ordering tickets – $50 per person.

The proceeds of this event will support a number of worthwhile causes including the Eliminate Project, a scholarship program, and the Glen Ridge Key Club. The Eliminate Project is an international Kiwanis effort to address maternal and neo-natal tetanus in developing countries that kills both mother and baby. Kiwanis plans to raise $110 million over 5 years and, in conjunction with UNICEF, provide nearly 400 million vaccine doses. Our local Kiwanis Club’s Scholarship Program awards scholarships to graduating seniors at Glen Ridge High School based largely on community service. The Glen Ridge Key Club, which will earn a portion of the proceeds, will donate 100% to Children’s Specialized Hospital, a pediatric rehabilitation hospital in Mountainside NJ caring for children affected by brain injury, spinal cord dysfunction and injury, premature birth, autism, developmental delays, and life-changing illnesses.

I'm struck by how much attention is being paid to the details of a parking lot, as opposed to the attention paid to the future impact of the monstrous projects being planned.
