Autumn in New Jersey
One of the most wonderful perks of living in New Jersey is being able to experience and enjoy all of the seasons! Autumn is definitely a fan favorite with cooling temps, beautiful changing foliage, apple and pumpkin picking, Oktoberfest, and the list goes on.
Welcome to The Showcase Magazine’s Fall/Back to School issue! As you enjoy our Autumn in New Jersey front cover brought to you by native artist Maria Verni, be sure to look inside for the best of LOCAL businesses and professionals.
Autumn in New Jersey is the best time of year for dining al fresco and enjoying LOCAL restaurants. We welcome you to take advantage of our packed LOCAL “Dining & Special Events” section as you start to crave your favorite fall comfort food. From Italian, American to Indian cuisine to Chinese or Portuguese, Turkish, Thai, Afghan, Argentinian, Greek or Mediterranean, we have it all. Also, since Back to School is such a busy time just let your LOCAL eateries make family dinners less stressful. Eat in or take out there are so many great LOCAL options!
And speaking of dining, make sure to take part in Berkeley Heights Restaurant Month, now in its seventh year, September 1st – 30th. With more than twenty eateries participating, there is something for everyone!
