On Monday June 15th, New Jersey food and drink establishments are allowed to offer outside dining for their customers! Not all restaurants, breweries or wineries are supporting outside dining, and some are starting up delayed... so I started putting together a list of who is supporting outside dining, and a link to an associated Facebook post. I plan on updating this list as more information comes in.
In tonight's Gloucester Township Planning Board, the Commerce Plaza II shopping center owners appeared asking to split the tax lots for the property, making the larger multi-unit building in the back (with parking lot) its own tax lot. The reason for this is Giant Fitness is interested in developing a new gym in that larger building, and it is their preference to own the property! But what about LIDL?!
Merryman's Pub has opened in the heart of Pitman's downtown area, with an amazing restoration of the 100+ year old Pitman National Bank Building! Well for right now "open" means they are serving up delicious To-Go offerings of Cocktails, Packaged Goods and select Food items. Merryman's Pub is Pitman's first full bar in what was historically a dry town! See gallery in the article!
In today's COVID-19 briefing by New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, he announced that New Jersey is entering Stage Two of the 3 stage plan. In June we will see the re-opening of Outdoor Dining, Non-essential Retail can allow customers in, Salons and Barbershops will open... and Gyms and Fitness facilities are in close range to open.
