Bring a picnic basket ... or relax and enjoy our wonderful food vendors and their delicious offerings!
FOOD VENDORS: We are still preparing our 2016 Food Vendor application. We anticipate announcing it in late April 2016..
Our food vendors for 2015 were:
We will have a beer garden, serving local beers. IDs will be checked, and drinks have to stay in the Beer Garden.
It will be open from noon until about 10 pm on Saturday and noon to 9 pm on Sunday.
Dave Hoffman's Climax Brewery of Roselle Park is supplying the beers, as they did last year. We have arranged for a slightly different line up of brews from last time: an IPA, and ESB, a lighter Ale, and a Hefeweizen.
Maplewood's Hank Zona is curating the wine and has selected a Spanish Rioja for red, and a South African sauvignon blanc for white. We are going to also try an experiment with a limited amount of sangria.
Prices are the same as last year: there are $5 and $1 tickets. Once IDs are checked at the entry, the cashiers will sell tickets. All the beers, wines, and sangria will be available for $5/glass (one $5 ticket). A pitcher of beer is 4 tickets, and new this year we'll sell a bottle (750ml) of white wine for 4 tickets. Given the earlier serving time of noon, we want to accommodate those who wish to have a tasty beer or wine with their lunch and beyond.
The beer garden will be in the same place as last year, but our tented area will be a bit larger than last year.
As always, we will have 1/2 L bottles of water for $1 tickets, as well as bags of pretzels and chips for $1 tickets as well.
The SO Elks are organizing the volunteer teams to work the Beer Garden. If you want to volunteer for a a two-hour shift, sign up today.
