Hey #HipNJ, today is #NationalSandwichDay! To celebrate, let’s take a look at 5 of the Garden State’s most mouthwatering sandwiches!

1. Fat Darrell, RU Hungry, New Brunswick

RU Hungry is home to the famous fat sandwich, a concoction of a hoagie roll, finger food, and usually lettuce, tomato and french fries. Their best-seller is the Fat Darrell, topped with chicken fingers, mozzarella sticks, marinara sauce, and french fries. It is a must-stop if you are ever in the Rutgers area!

2. Brunchwich, The Committed Pig, Manasquan, Morristown & Summit

The Committed Pig is known for the Brunchwich, their modern-twist on brunch and sandwiches. This sandwich is a bacon, egg, and cheese on french toast. Sounds SO good! Check out any one of their three locations located around the state!

3. Deli Sandwich, Harold’s NY Deli, Edison

It’d be in your best interest to bring a few friends with you to this famous deli known for their gargantuan sandwiches. The meats you can choose from include corned beef, hot pastrami, roast beef, brisket, turkey, salami and more. The huge serving size almost guarantees you’ll be walking out with a hearty box of leftovers!

5. Cheesesteak, Donkey’s Place, Camden

“Hang your head in shame, Philadelphia, the best cheesesteak in the country is whipped up across the Delaware in Camden, New Jersey” (NY Post). Served on a poppy seed bun and often topped with hot peppers and onions, this cheesesteak is claimed to be arguably the best in the country. It was even featured on Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown!

Enjoy #NationalSandwichDay at any one of these fine NJ sandwich shops!

Tawanada Jones on the Camden Sophisticated Sisters

Tawanda Jones, co-founder of the Camden Sophisticated Sisters, sat with Steve Adubato on “One-on-One” to discuss how her organization is changing the lives of children in Camden! 

Officially, the mission of the Camden Sophisticated Sisters, or CSS, is to “motivate, educate, discipline and empower our youth through the structure of a drill team and the performing arts.” 

In addition to singing and acting, children in the organization are required to complete 200 volunteer hours.  Furthermore, as Jones says, “It’s one big community inside of the neighborhood center”. 

Most importantly, 4,000 children have come through the program with a 100% graduation rate! Additionally, Jones recognizes that “It takes a collective effort,” to produce results.  The Camden Sophisticated Sisters provides the opportunity for the community, the parents and the children to come together collectively!

By Ryan Hickey

The last dwindling days of summer have been nothing sort of beautiful. August has been gracing New Jersey with heat, sunshine, and fun. Here’s what you missed is weekend:

Friday, August 19th

Two very different artists came to entertain NJ on Friday night. Kristin Chenoweth performed at The Borgata Music Box in Atlantic City, NJ. She shared a post on Instagram after the show hyping up AC night 2. Black Sabbath rocked the BB&T Pavilion in Camden, NJ. The Prince of Darkness (Ozzy Osborne) knows how to slay the show.

Wonderful night at the @borgataac… Excited for round 2 tonight, Atlantic City!

Kenny Chesney was in the Garden State this weekend. Adorable Sam Hunt opened. 56,292 fans piled into MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ for the Spread the Love Tour. He shared a photo on Instagram of enthusiastic fans smiling, screaming, and waving the flag proud captioning it, #americankids. He described the audience as, “Magic.” We agree, Chesney.
