José Eber Salon One Year Anniversary Celebration

Toast the one year anniversary of the #hippest salon in the Garden State with New Jersey’s go-to lifestyle series!

#HipNJ’s Lisa Marie Latino was at José Eber Salon in Millburn for their posh event that featured food, cocktails and tunes spun by celebrity music producer Valntino, who after traveling the world, boasted that the salon “is one of the best I’ve seen!”

In just one year in business, José Eber Salon has established themselves as the go-to salon for #HipNJ‘s glaministas. This full service salon is equipped with the latest beauty technology to provide full services in hair cuts and color, makeup for a luxe event, and designer nails.

Vanguard of Beauty, José Eber, reflected on the quality of each and every visit to the salon. Not only do clients leave with a show-stopping look, they come for the “one-of-a-kind experience!”

Owner Marc Farbstein explains how José’s decades of styling Hollywood’s top starlets translated into the salon’s success.  “José knows what’s hot, what’s in style, and what Beverly Hills is doing to create unforgettable and unique looks.  That hip factor is now in Short Hills, and people love it!”

Paper Mill Playhouse’s A Bronx Tale: The Musical


Classic 1993 hit film, “A Bronx Tale” is now hitting the Paper Mill Playhouse stage!

#HipNJ’s Lisa Marie Latino recently joined the opening night celebration of, “A Bronx Tale: The Musical” at Ricalton’s Village Tavern of South Orange, New Jersey. She was lucky enough to chat with the a-list actors & actresses of this wonderful musical production.

Based on the real life story by Chazz Palminteri‚ “A Bronx Tale: The Musical” is based on the racial issues and organized crime from the 1960s. Lisa chatted with the young Italian-American boy, Calogero, who is first played by Joshua Colley and later by Jason Gotay. Calogero’s journey is to find the right path in life, as he must choose between the father who raised him (played by Richard H. Blake) or a mob-boss father figure (played by Nick Cordero) who fascinates him. Blake and Cordero share with Lisa their passion for their roles on the stage. Lucia Giannetta (Rosina) returns to Paper Mill Playhouse and Coco Jones (Jane) loves the amount of talent that fills the room envisioning the show being the biggest and the best!

This masterpiece is co-directed by two-time Oscar winner Robert De Niro and four-time Tony Award winner Jerry Zaks! Lisa was lucky enough to speak with Zaks about his Off-Broadway experience.

Writer Chazz Palminteri shares with Hip New Jersey his love for the Paper Mill Playhouse stating, “The Paper Mill is literally ‘Broadway’ out here…it’s an incredible theater and if you want to do a great show and you need a space, the Paper Mill is the place to go.” Eight-time Academy Award Winning Composer, Alan Menken agrees with Palminteri saying that, “All the production aspects at Paper Mill are absolutely Broadway caliber.”

Glenn Slater beautifully masters lyrics of this musical and mentions that he is honored to work with heavy hitters like De Niro, Palminteri, Zaks and Menken.

Choreographer and four-time Drama Desk Award nominee Sergio Trujillo shares with Lisa his all-time favorite type of dance: do-op!
