I read about goings on in Montclair, Glen Ridge, and Bloomfield (that last one mentioned pizza, so that was attractive!), but nothing about any events in West Orange.
Bike & Walk Montclair held a Four Ward Evening Bike Tour, in Montclair. The ride started in the 2nd Ward at the Edgemont Park Field House, and made stops at each event–of National Night Out–in all Four Wards of the town. I biked from home.
The basic schedule:
5:00 pm – Met at Edgemont Park Field House, in the 2nd Ward [Surprise: there was pizza! I had a slice (from Panzano’s) and a bottle of water];
– biked to Salvation Army, in the 3rd Ward [I had two slices of pizza (from Mancinni’s) and a bottle of water];
– biked to the Community Center (11 Pine Street), in the 4th Ward [I had an empanada (from Noches de Colombia) and a bottle of water];
– biked to St. James Church, in the 1st Ward – arrived at 7:00.
Laura Torchio, for leading the ride. (BTW, I “swept” [brought up the rear] and kept counting to *10* [people] [nine ahead of me]!)
