Fans are still buzzing over Taylor Swift’s surprise appearance at couple Max Singer and Kenya Smith’s wedding in Brant Beach. The events unfolded as a result of Singer’s sister reaching out to Swift months ago explaining that their mother had passed in a hospital room after the couple tied the knot just so that she would see it. Swift performed a piano version of “Blank Space,” the same song that Singer danced to with his mother in the hospital room, and stayed after for some pictures and wedding fun.

The ninth annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic took place at Liberty State Park in Jersey City. Attendees of the event were invited to view a game of polo while picnicking on the lawn. Celebrity appearances included Rose Byrne, Jaimie Alexander, Michael B. Jordan and Elizabeth Olsen.

The Once Upon A Time Official Convention came to Whippany at the Marriot Hanover as part of the convention’s inaugural series. The popular TV show tells the story of various fairytale characters who land in a fictional town in Maine and are stripped of their powers. High ratings prompted the show to hold this convention in order for its fans to immerse themselves in the “Once Upon A Time” universe and to interact with the shows stars.

New Jersey had some awesome representation nationwide. Miss New Jersey, 24-year-old Jessielyn Palumbo from Wayne, strutted her stuff in Las Vegas at the Miss USA pageant. Akash Modi, a Stanford University gymnast and Morganville native is a contender for the approaching Summer Olympic Games after finishing fourth overall at the P&G National Championships in Hartford, CT.

The annual Hot 97 Summer Jam returned to Metlife Stadium in East Rutherford. Despite warnings of inclement weather that lead to early cancellations, the event went on with a delayed main stage show. Performers included A$AP Rocky, Bryson Tiller and Big Sean – crowd favorite and Snapchat superstar DJ Khaled was also in attendance. The show was topped off with a last-minute appearance by Kanye West.

The phrase doesn’t lie: New Jersey is stronger than the storm. Following Sunday’s inclement weather, Jersey Shore Hurricane News challenged its Instagram followers to share their best post-storm shots using the #jshn hashtag.


Cosentino Grand Opening

By Marisa Reinhart

#HipNJ was recently at the grand opening of the Cosentino Center in Fairfield, New Jersey!

The event took place in the new state-of-the-art interactive showroom and massive warehouse. The 30,000 square foot warehouse showcased many Cosentino brands including Dekton, SenSa Granite, and Silestone Natural Quartz. Dekton is an ultra-compact surface with interior and exterior functions. The beautiful quartz and natural stone surfaces were displayed predominantly around the showroom.

My personal favorite feature of the showroom is the LED Sample Viewing Room. In this room, customers and trade professionals are able to take a sample and place it on the sample reader. This then translates it onto a large touch screen where the customer can explore the product offerings.

The visitors were encouraged to explore and engage in the surface buying experience while enjoying wine from the Michael Mondavi Family Estate and eating locally grown cuisine selections.

Special guests at the event included HGTV’s Kitchen Cousins, John Colaneri and Anthony Carrino. The cousins explained how they trust Cosentino products for all of their projects, and even have the surfaces in their own homes.

Eduardo Cosentino, the CEO of Cosentino North America, was there for the ribbon cutting ceremony, and to explain the company’s focus on international expansion, innovative research and development.

The evening finished with a beautiful aerial show on the warehouse’s overhead crane. The dancer tumbled and performed her acrobatic routine above the guests and the ultra-compact surfaces.

The successful evening proved that the family-owned business with its headquarters in Spain will solidify Cosentino’s position as the surfacing leader in New Jersey.
