#HipNJ visits 128 West State Café

#HipNJ visited 128 West State Café, a new meeting place in the heart of Historic Trenton, to learn how they are giving new meaning to “Capitol Perk.”

“The idea was to appeal to the business community,” owner Dale Florio states. People along West State Street began asking for a breakfast and lunch café that would serve as a gathering place across from the State Capitol, and 128 West State Café was born.

“The idea was to have healthy, fresh food,” Florio states of the café’s unique menu. “There’s some variety there, which people seem to enjoy,” café manager Ando Dell says.

The staff has been there since the beginning, which adds to the café’s warm and welcoming environment. “We’re bringing people together, and it has become the meeting place we hoped it would be,” Florio says.

Her sophisticated look was a sky-blue tweed cashmere jacket, a mock turtle neck dress and matching gloves and pumps! The outfit chosen on this special day will set the tone to Melania’s style for the rest of her term as First Lady. Ralph Lauren has also designed many of Hillary Clinton’s pant suits.

Saturday, held the Women’s March in Washington D.C to make a statement.Their statements varied from women’s rights and to LGBTQ’s rights and many other reasons. The Women’s March wanted to stand up for their beliefs, but not all could attend Washington D.C.’s march. This lead to many ‘sister marches’ throughout the state. The six places in New Jersey, were Trenton, Asbury park, Mount Laurel, Pompton plains, Westfield and Wycoff. Thousands of men and women attended the marches in New Jersey, one of them being Patti Scialfa, Bruce Springsteen’s wife in Asbury park.

Sunday-Our home teams may not have made the playoffs but we still have a touch of New Jersey going to the super bowl. New Jersey’s very own Rutgers University graduate, Mohamed Sanu of the Atlanta Falcons scored a touchdown bringing them closer to the Super Bowl on February 5th. Mohamed Sanu was drafted from Rutgers University after being the first freshman to ever start as a wide receiver. It doesn’t end there for New Jersey, another Rutgers University graduate Logan Ryan of the New England Patriots is going to the Super Bowl! Ryan plays as a cornerback for the Patriots. Garden states working hard and will be playing harder come February 5th! 

Super Bowl bound!!!! #Brotherhood #RiseUp!
