Looks like I may not be able to make it. I completely forgot we are doing Star Wars Celebration. Maybe I'll make it work.
We would absolutely LOVE to have them, but we don't have any guarantees about any of the podcasters coming. We hope you'll come, either way!!Hello all! Are any of the DIS podcasters going to be there? Is there going to be a Podcast? That was so much fun! I was just looking at pictures from the 2015 Podcast. Thanks for the info!
WOW, thank you SO MUCH, Erick!! We will be in touch!
Thanks so much!! We will be in touch!
Hi! Are you from the NJ area?hello all, I am new here. This is my first post
Woohoo!!I got confirmation today that I will be off that weekend so WE ARE COMING! I just booked the hotel and registered!! I'll work on getting donations together and touch base with that info as soon as I can.
Can you explain Friday night to me? Is the plan to travel together as a group to each of those places one by one? We have no interest in the two breweries but definitely want to go to the distillery. Might it be possible for us to meet the rest of the group there?Brewery Tour!! Join us as we visit Cricket Hill Brewery, Magnify Brewing, and Jersey Spirits Distillery for a fun night on the town! Pay directly at the venues.

We wanted to switch it up and try something new, so we moved it about 35 miles north. And we wanted to give people the opportunity to explore the area and/or sleep in on Saturday. Sorry you can't make it this time.Not sure if we will make it this year. It is farther from us then the last meet. It is also later in the day then we would have liked. A lunch time meet would have been better like last time.
Hope everyone has fun!
Thanks so much for your input! We hope to see you at the meetLurker here (for like forever).
I am from Fairfield, born and raised. Weird hearing the announcement for the NJ dis meet on the podcast, I had a double take when I heard it.
A few random comments:
· In terms of “hotel restaurants” consider yourself lucky. Both Cucina Calandra and their sister restaurant (just up the road) Calandra’s Mediterranean Grill (inside the Hampton Inn) are both great. Very good Italian food.
· The Best Western is right next to a strip mall (literally walk through the parking lot) and there is a pizzeria, Chinese restaurant, Calandra’s Italian Bakery, another Italian restaurant, Italian deli, and a Kohr’s ice cream.
· The closest mall is “Willowbrook Mall”. Honestly, it’s basically the worst of North Jersey. Avoid Willowbrook, and take 20 extra minutes to go to Short Hills. It’s like a world away.
· With no traffic you can get into NYC in ½ hour drive. Could take sometimes an hour or more though, so plan accordingly.
Fun fact: Fairfield has the greatest concentration of Italian Americans than any other town in the USA. http://www.providencejournal.com/article/20151213/NEWS/151219688
Any questions about the area, let me know!
