Spread out across nine locations in New Jersey and New York, Treasure Island Self Storage's complexes safely house personal belongings in climate-controlled units protected by password-controlled gates and overseen by 24-hour video-surveillance feeds. The units come in a variety of sizes and are accessible seven days a week. Customers can take advantage of drive-up access and ground-floor loading, a more convenient way to store trinkets than shipping them to a relative's attic. At each location, a professional consultant is ready to assist customers, and an assortment of boxes, tape, and other packing supplies are available at each location to provide items a smooth and secure passage. Select locations are also U-Haul-authorized dealerships equipped to rent out moving trucks. Other locations provide free use of their own trucks for clients who can't balance a couch on their handlebars.
In their New Jersey and Michigan facilities, Wicked Flames’ candle makers hand-pour natural, kosher, nontoxic, dye-free candles. Essential oils mingle with soy wax to create soothing aromas as candles burn, including island-inspired aloha, spicy cinnamon, and fresh lemon verbena. Many candles boast aromatherapy benefits such as improving moods or masking the smell of a roommate’s postbreakup apathy-scented candle. Because soy candles burn cooler than conventional candles, they are less likely to leave sooty black on jars and walls, and Wicked Flame uses braided cotton wicks to reduce smoke. Each candle burns approximately 10–12 hours per ounce, and candles are available in 2- to 30-ounce sizes.
The Day of the Undead: Rahway Zombie Apocalypse features a sight usually only seen in horror movies?zombie hordes shuffling around the city, searching everywhere for food. During this real-life adventure game at 11 a.m. on November 1, hundreds of participants dressed as zombies follow a series of clues hidden in everyday places around the city to try to uncover a zombie feast. The clues are tricky and must be solved before sundown (5:56 p.m.), and the journey must take place entirely on foot (hopping into cars and onto birds' backs are not allowed).
Not everyone will complete the challenge, but those who do have a chance to win one of three $250 gift cards. Plus, the Rahway Library screens the movies of the dead that day, and later in the evening, Rahway's zombie pub crawl kicks off at Meatballs and Brews.
