Because this side of the river has increasingly become a place of destination, this summer’s Hudson County Restaurant Week (7/25-8/5) is particularly poignant. All of the quickly established new additions to our classic faves are creating crazy flocks of foodies.

Celebrate Father’s Day with Con Vivo’s semi-annual Bach Concert! On Sunday, June 18th, Cathedral Hall (380 Montgomery St.) will be filled with the sounds of Johann Sebastian Bach.
The concert features mezzo-soprano Sarah Nelson Craft and oboist Christa Robinson in a concert of Bach’s most intimate chamber music for voice, oboe, string quartet, harpsichord, and organ. Con Vivo presents a wide panoply of Bach’s style and achievements, from the elegance of his intimate keyboard works, to the athleticism of his oboe and string repertoire.
The concert begins at 3pm and is free for all ages. Program information and more about Con Vivo here.

Hidden Hymns is an evening of Modern Dance by Meagan Woods & Company set to live original music by Shayfer James – and it all goes down at the 407 Theater-County Prep HS (525 Montgomery Ave.) this Saturday, June 17th at 7pm.
Meagan wanted to create a night with dance at the forefront, a show to highlight professional dancers, feature students, and honor a true coming together of friends and dedicated collaborators, such as Shayfer, who she’s worked with throughout the years.
“I can feel something building, something really meaningful,” says Meagan of choreographing and rehearsing these six dances, with a collective cast of 21 dancers.
Tickets are $15/general; $6/students. Purchase online here. You can also pay at the door, but door tickets are cash only.
Meagan Woods & Company can use your support to continue bringing arts programs to the community. Think: costumes, lighting, sound, rehearsal space & venue rentals, professional musicians and dancers, and so much more that goes into making these shows possible. You can donate to the cause here, and your gift is tax deductible.

The second annual Unity Walk in Jersey City, hosted by The Jersey City Anti-Violence Coalition Movement, takes place this Saturday, June 10.
Pamela Johnson, the director of the movement, started the walk in 2016 to raise awareness that violence in Jersey City increases during the summer, year after year.
The walk begins at the corner of McAdoo Ave. and Martin Luther King Drive at 9am, and ends at Lincoln Park, where there will be a picnic, games, live entertainment, informational booths, and crafts.
Beyond the walk, the Jersey City Anti-Violence Coalition Movement hosts empowerment workshops each month.
