I don’t typically shop at boutiques BUT my fiance, Lyndsay Palianto, does and I know she loves DiLaRu Boutique in Nutley. I know because I go there to shop with her and for her.
What is your favorite salon or spa?
I’ve been getting my haircut by my best friend Mike Enzo Trivette’s salon, Toni & Guy’s in Hoboken.
What is your favorite local health and wellness center?
I go to Zest in Fairfield at least once a week. The smoothies are awesome and the staff is super friendly.
Where is your favorite local place for home decor?
We recently purchased a condo in Whippany and just started decorating it. We got a few decorative items at the store At Home in Wayne.
What is your favorite nighttime hangout?
I always meet up with my buddies at a few different bars/restaurants. My favorite would be Maggie’s Town Tavern in Little Falls. Awesome atmosphere and food! Also, Bask Bar & Grill in Woodland Park.
What is your favorite local place to do business?
My business partner Ryan and I always get lunch at Tito’s Burritos & Wings in Morristown. That’s where most of our business and episode ideas take place for our YouTube channel.
What is your favorite “Made in Jersey” product?
Taylor Ham is often my cheat meal!
What is your favorite New Jersey downtown district?
There are so many, but definitely Morristown and Montclair. I love walking around both locations, especially in the summer.
What is your favorite New Jersey-based service business?
I have to shout out my friend DJ Tommy Gambuzza and his crew at Elegant Music Group. They are an awesome full-service entertainment company, they are spinning at my wedding at the end of the year.
How has COVID-19 affected your business?
Even though it is a bit of a challenging time, the real estate market is still active. Of course a few buyers and sellers are cautious. Some buyers have decided to wait on purchasing a home until this situation calms down. We’ve had to adapt quite a bit. Thankfully, I am able to virtually show houses to a few clients. I have gone on listing appointments but followed a very strict safety protocol: masks, gloves, booties, and kept a consistently safe distance from homeowners. As far as acting, in-person auditions have totally stopped, so I am self-taping and submitting auditions to casting directors for commercials and episodic TV.
