It's no secret that kids have short attention spans. Normally that's a challenge, but at Kidz Village, it's the expectation. The staff has assembled more than 12 themed play areas inside the facility, ranging from simulations of a hair salon and a comic-book store to an arcade (with real prize tickets) and a fairy-tale castle. And if families feel like dropping by on a whim, they're more than welcome, as open play is available everyday. Adults always receive free entry and can relax in an area with complimentary WiFi and views of all the play areas. An onsite restaurant, Perky's Pizza, serves chicken tenders and hot dogs to keep kids fueled.
The party packages at Kidz Village are quite accommodating, as they include a mix of both open access to play areas and reserved time in a private party room. In the private room, staff hosts orchestrate a custom lineup of games that might include limbo or trivia based on the birthday child's favorite TV shows. Even once the private-room reservation is over, groups are welcome to stay and party for free until closing time or the staff's nap time.
As the newest addition to the special-event destination The Castle, Joia de Portugal introduces patrons to a staggering 10-page menu of Portuguese cuisine. Those interested in traditional preparations can look out for chef favorites such as the chourico assado (a roasted sausage flambe), or carne de porco alentejana, a Portuguese specialty with pork cubes, clams, and fried potatoes. More familiar dishes include New Zealand rack of lamb and filet mignon, both of which are served with saffron rice and Spanish potatoes. Western European influences are prevalent on the dessert menu as well, as guests can choose from tiramisu, flan, and a passion-fruit creme brulee that packs as much energy as the man who outran a Eurail train.
Since 1988, Pete Celia and his dedicated staff of employees have served delicatessen-style breakfast and lunch in their cozy, no-frills eatery on Rahway Avenue. After feeding early guests with omelets, waffles, breakfast wraps, and egg platters, the cooks start assembling hot and cold sandwiches, burgers, sloppy joes, and platters of chicken, roast beef, and fried shrimp for lunch. Cozy Corner Deli also offers off-site catering for special occasions.

What do you love most about your job? The smiles I see on the faces of my clients when I know that I have been a part of something so special to them that they will never forget. It's not [in] every profession that you get the chance to make a memory for somebody that will last a lifetime. I get the honor to do so, and do so with pride!
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer? Earlier this year we worked a wedding for a bride that was severely ill. She was very pleased with our work and wrote (to summarize), "You guys just made the party of a lifetime happen, which is not long for me, so thank you for allowing me to forget my problems for one night and smile forever!"
Anybody with a computer can record a song these days, but Big As Life Recording Studio LLC grants musicians access to more than just its digital recording facility. A professional producer collaborates on each session, helping flesh out the clients' ideas and bring out their strongest vocal performance. Once tracks are laid down, engineers mix, edit, and master each tune before burning them to CDs and making iTunes-friendly mp3s.
Big As Life's services don't end with recording – its team can film the session for DVDs, lease beats for future projects, and even sell your work. Inside the studio's 900-square-foot hall, nicknamed "The Chamber," musicians can also rehearse or launch their latest albums by converting the stage into a catapult.
