Nimbus Dance Works’ 2015 Gala

flyer-DANCE_FINALNimbus Dance Works’ 2015 Gala will take place on Saturday, October 17th!

All proceeds from this event will go to the Nimbus Scholarship Fund; the School of Nimbus Dance Works is committed to providing high quality dance training to the Jersey City community and believes that no one should be denied this opportunity due to an inability to pay. This past year the Nimbus Scholarship fund provided more than $30,000 in scholarships to under served youth throughout the community.

As the organization is continually expanding, with growing class sizes and class offerings at satellite locations,  Nimbus maintains its focus, and will offer scholarships to students and families in need of assistance.  Because of this, the annual gala will focus on raising money for the Nimbus Scholarship Fund this year.

Help give back to the community and come to an exciting evening filled with dance, cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and a silent auction; featuring performances by Nimbus Dance Works’ professional company as well as the Nimbus Youth Ensemble and foreword by gala honoree, Councilwoman Candice Osborne!



Foodie Friday! Bone in Food

2015-07-15_11-39-54This week’s Foodie Friday is shining the spotlight on Jersey City’s own Bone in Food.

Started by  Ron Mirante & Virginia Dimaio – Mirante, the concept is simple –  deliver delicious, organic, healthy 3-course meals right to your doorstep. You could also pick-up at  their store.

A different 3-course meal is available each week and you choose day, time, and # of meals to be delivered. Delivery times are between 12-2pm & 5-9PM / Mon – Fri and are currently only available in Jersey City. They also cater small parties and gatherings at your home or business.

From their site:

Bone In is a knowledge based food service. We provide simple, delicious, nutrient dense food options to the local community. Promoting the health benefits of both bone broths and an all-natural, organic diet, all servings are also accompanied with a bit of food knowledge to help create awareness of the major influences behind the influx of health epidemics effecting many.
