The Hip List: Wood Watches By Jord

Wood is what holds homes together, it is what we walk on when we vacation at the Jersey Shore, it stands tall in our forests. Rethink this sturdy material and picture it around your wrist, telling time.

Unlike the other uses of wood mentioned above, with Jord watches, wood is the main feature.

Jord translates to earth, soil, land in Swedish and speaks true to the concept of the Jord watch. Entwined in each timepiece is an appreciation for natural elements, simplicity, efficiency and above all utility.

“Jord owners don’t just have somewhere to be, they have somewhere to go. We believe our watches tell more than time,” according to woodwatches.com.

Each watch is designed to be as unique as its owner. With selections including colorful faces, square and round pieces, multi-colored wooden bands, and untraditional wooden blends, you’re sure to find your Jord perfect match!

“Our methods ensure that our watches are not just worn, they’re used,” Jord’s website reads.

Wear your Jord like a boss, use it like it’s your job.

Exit 82 Theater Company Presents “Rock of Ages”

#HipNJ, be prepared to rock!

Rock of Ages came off Broadway this past winter and landed right in Toms River, NJ at Exit 82 Theater Company!  This was the show’s very first off-Broadway production in the country.

“The show is an explosion of 80’s rock music, set to a not-so-deep plot to introduce non-theatre goers to the experience,” said “Rock of Ages” music director and Strand Theatre’s producing artistic director, Anthony D’Amato.

From the performers to the audience, D’Amato said everyone has a blast.

“There’s 15 or so performers on stage who love each other and are just having a blast…and it shows,” D’Amato said.

Co-founder of Exit 82 and executive director and producer of “Rock of Ages”, Keely Davenport, said “Rock of Ages” was Exit 82’s best performance yet!

“It was a bigger show all the way around so bigger budget, bigger sound, better talent,” Davenport explained.

As for the theater company, Exit 82 is in their seventh season and on their eleventh production. Exit 82 is committed to producing up to three huge productions a year at their new home: Strand Theatre, according to Davenport.

“We all band together and put on this amazing show so it’s an incredible collaborative group of people,” Davenport said.

Davenport mentioned that this theater group is all volunteer, saying they call themselves a family.

For one rockin’ theater experience you know what exit to take.
