Top 15 Wines of Summer. #9
Italy- Perfect example of a Pinot Grigio wine. Flavors of pear and apple with a hint of toasted almond and peach abound on the palate. This wine has a crisp acidity and a smooth and pleasant finish. A perfect aperitif wine and a Friulan favorite with pasta in chicken sauce.
CRUMBL COOKIES TO OPEN IN BRICK
By Nicole Murray, 94.3 The Point
If you are currently on a Summer diet, I am going to warn you that you might not be by the time you finish reading this.
A sweet-filled chain is expanding like wild fire in New Jersey and it is not difficult to see why.
Have you ever heard of Crumbl Cookies?
They are an up and coming bakery who specializes in the obvious - cookies - as well as homemade ice cream.
According to APP.com, they are known for their, "rotating menu of cookies and its staple: a warm chocolate chip cookie. Ever week, Crumbl rolls out five specialty flavors with names such as Lemon Glaze, Molten Lava, Churro, Chocolate Potato Chip and Cinnamon Fry Bread."
They have a massive following on social media so you can also get to know them on their Instagram or Tiktok. Crumbl Cookies offers curbside pickup, delivery, catering, gifts and can ship your order depending on where you are located.
Who knew cheating on a diet could be so easy?
Well we have a new location on the way! No, I am not talking about the new Crumbl Cookies set to open at 2136 Route 35 in Holmdel on May 20th. Jimmy G. already told you about this opening.
This new opening will come in Ocean County and the hope is that they can open for business by the end of this year!
But more on this in a second....
Real quick, let's take a look at some of Crumbl's classic, most popular flavors that you should try at least once:
Milk Chocolate Chip
The classic - you can't go wrong. Thick, soft and packed with milk chocolate chips.
Salted Caramel Cheesecake
A three-layer stack of flavors including graham cracker, cheesecake frosting, gooey caramel, and a touch of sea salt.
Chocolate Potato Chip
A savory cookie filled with semi-sweet chocolate chunks and toasted coconut rolled in crushed potato chips and pretzels.
Just like the iconic pie—a buttery sugar cookie with sparkly brown sugar and freshly-toasted pecan pie filling.
Peanut Butter Bar
A chunky peanut butter oatmeal cookie smothered with rich chocolate fudge frosting.
Crumbl Cookies already has bakeries in Ocean Township, Englewood and Clark along with Holmdel which will be opening on May 20th. Their newest location is set to open in Brick and according to APP.com, the owners say, "the new spot may open around August or September," of this year.
This cookie heaven will be built in Brick Plaza and owners Darrel and Karen Doucette of Manalapan say that construction is about to get started!
According to APP.com, they are talking about opening at least three more bakeries in New Jersey but we don't know where just yet.

FIND YOUR BEST WEEKEND...HARBORVIEW HOTEL
At the eastern end of the Island, perched on a bluff overlooking the Lighthouse and Edgartown Harbor, the Harbor View Hotel opened in 1891 and remains the island’s premier full service hotel. While boasting all the modern amenities you would expect, it still retains the charm and elegance of days gone by. A wonderful wrap-around veranda with rocking chairs is a great place to sit and read or just watch the boats go by on the harbor. This is the best view on the Island for any accommodation.
New owners took possession at the end of 2006 and have been busy making changes and upgrades. The lobby has been brightened and freshened, the exterior has been renovated and many of the rooms have been refurbished.
The grounds are beautifully and meticulously landscaped, awash with flowers and bushes and trees. Behind the hotel there’s a heated pool surrounded by a brick patio and wonderful gardens. Food and beverage service is offered around the pool and if you feel like you need some exercise, there are lighted tennis courts just a few steps away. READ MORE
