Importing varietals from an Italian winemaker more than 120 years old, Multinational Wines transports palates across the pond to the sun-drenched hills of Tuscany. The shop's meticulously curated collection of vintages includes full-bodied merlot, a floral pinot grigio, and a chianti wholly uninspired by The Silence of the Lambs.
As a lifelong resident and explorer of New Jersey, Vaughn Tiedeman possesses an intimate familiarity with the region’s natural beauty and hidden entertainment gems. He started Living Adventure Tours to get folks out of the city and exploring the natural majesty of the northeast. He and his guides lead an endless array of seasonal activities such as hiking, kayaking, and hot air balloon tours during the warmer months. As winter sets in, they lead snowshoeing journeys and wine- and beer-tasting tours of the vineyards and breweries nestled throughout the scenic countryside.
Pour & Pedal leads wine lovers on 13-mile excursions through the picturesque farms, gardens, and vineyards of New Jersey and New York's wine country. Tours progress at a leisurely pace over predominantly flat terrain and well-surfaced roads, and riders are provided with bicycles that feature baskets for carrying any bottles bought at vineyards. Tours begin at 10 a.m. and finish around 3 p.m., often passing by seasonal attractions such as antique car shows or live concerts en route.
Using an unconventional process touted by media outlets such as Fox News, The Sadkhin Complex focuses on helping clients lose excess weight by addressing their hunger at its source. More than 20 years of development have formed the Sadkhin Method, the company's natural, drug-free, and noninvasive approach to weight loss.
At its source, the program blends health coaching and nutritional planning with acupressure-influenced patented chrono-stimulation therapy. Using small chrome spheres placed at specific pressure points behind the client's ears, certified Sadkhin practitioners aim to stimulate the hypothalamus—the part of the brain that controls hunger—which can also help you quit envisioning your best friend as a giant slice of pie.
To help clients extend the benefits of this treatment for the long term, the specialists also prescribe an eating plan based on natural foods, which helps synchronize organ function and balance internal systems.

It would be easy to spend an entire day at Calandra's Italian Village—perusing the colorful packaged Italian imports in the market, lingering over a cup of pistachio gelato in the gelateria, and finishing off with a glass of wine in the bar. Wanderers who stroll to the left of the village stumble into Il Vecchio Cafe, where Italian tapestries adorn the walls and diners chat animatedly at wooden tabletops. Servers dart across the sunlit floors, bearing plates of homemade penne alla vodka, eggplant caprese panini, and broiled tilapia and refilling glasses of wine. A counter overlooks the kitchen, where a wood-burning oven bakes thin-crust pizzas. Wooden beams and vintage-style walls enclose the tabletops that speckle the outdoor stone deck, creating the look of a rustic Italian farm or the set of a movie where a rich businessman learns the value of friendship from a talking countryside mouse.
