Special week planned to celebrate Flemington restaurants

August 25, 2016 by  

Flemington Foodies are invited to an event that will give them an opportunity to sample dishes from restaurants throughout the community.

The Flemington Business Improvement District’s (BID) has once again organized Flemington Restaurant Week, which will encourage the public to enjoy meals at different local eateries at a special rate. This year, the event has expanded to include restaurants in the rest of Raritan Township who are members of the BID. A creator of custom drinkware can both design and then produce glasses and other items for use during a special annual event such as this.

Those businesses participating in the week’s activities are expecting reservations to fill up quickly, and it is suggested that those who are interested in trying out a particular establishment should make their reservations early.

They can also enquire to find out what the menu is, what sort of specials are being offered and what its hours of operation are. The prices many of the restaurants will be posting do not usually include the tax, beverage, or the gratuity, and some will only be providing the special pricing on certain days of the event.

The Flemington Restaurant Week will take place from October 31 until November 6. Anyone who would like to find out more or see a list of participating eateries is invited to visit the event’s website.

Flemington kids receive incentive to have a safe summer

July 20, 2016 by  

An initiative has been undertaken by Flemington police that will see local children be “ticketed” for practicing safe biking or engaging in other activities in a manner that puts safety first.

The idea, which is has been developed as part of the #SafeSummer program, will see youngsters who are found wearing their helmets while biking, or taking appropriate safety precautions while rollerblading or skateboarding, be given a “ticket” by the police.

The tickets are actually cards that can be redeemed at a variety of local sponsors. A printing company can design and produce items for use in campaigns such as this that can be customized to include any graphics or logos that are desired.

According to Dr. Blood, who is one of the people behind the initiative, the goal is to encourage safe recreation and also to encourage positive interactions between children and the police. She explained that kids respond well to positive reinforcement, which the tickets provide.

Young people from families that cannot afford to purchase a helmet will be presented with a voucher for one, which has been contributed by program’s sponsors. The initiative will run until the end of the summer, and plans are already being made to run it again next year.

More information about the #SafeSummer can be obtained by contacting the Flemington Police Department.
