Van Saun Park Hosts Film in the Fall Event
Fall is in the air and there’s nothing better than watching a movie under the stars nestled on blanket in one of our favorite local parks. But we figured out a way to make that scenario even better: Make the film Disney’s African Cats and watch it a couple hundred cat-lengths away from the county’s very own mountain lion exhibit. “The movie featuring real orphaned cats ties in with the Bergen County Zoo's orphaned mountain lions” said Joseph Appio, a representative from the Bergen County Executives Office. This Friday at 7:30 pm, Bergen County will be hosting a screening of the film at Van Saun Park in Paramus as a part of the Bergen County Film in the Fall Series. The film is an epic true tale, narrated by Samuel L. Jackson, capturing the…

Books, Bytes & Beyond hosts author for book signing
Eric Carle, the beloved creator of timeless illustrated picture books such as The Very Hungry Caterpillar, has a special friendship with the owners of Books, Bytes & Beyond in Glen Rock.

"Dinner With Friends" opening at Porch Light Theatre
It's not only the beginning of a great third season at Porch Light Theatre, it’s also a clear case of life imitating art, according to the theater's artistic director. “As many are aware, my partner in Porch Light (Jenn Boles, the theater's managing director) is also my partner in life. This past summer, Jenn and I got engaged and will be married this May," said Artistic Director Ryan Pifher. "We thought it only appropriate (and fun!) that our season should also somewhat mirror the journey that all relationships take. This is why our season is aptly named, 'The Season of Love.'" Porch Light Theatre in Glen Rock will open its 2011/12 season with the Pulitzer Prize winning play "Dinner With Friends". Performances are Fridays and Saturdays …
