Bergen Events Not to Miss: Week of December 14th

Activities  / 

We always love a good collab (12.12 Concert for Sandy, Neimans +Target Gift List; Beiber/Minaj awesomeness) so when we heard about Joanne Ricci and Raymond Barach teaming up to open a new restaurant—Raymond’s in Ridgewood—we hit it early. See our write up here.

Entertaining much?  We’ve got TONS of ideas to inspire on our “I ? The Holidays” Pinterest Board.

Last call for our double Posh Perks:  Crosstrain like a celeb for less than $10 per class at coolhotyoga, or score our best birthday party deal ever now.
