    Hi Everyone,

    I have seen that a lot of people live in the Tri-State area, but there has not been a fun run or simple relaxing get together in a while.

    I am looking to set up a relaxing get together with a short drive, maybe an hour or so, some time to talk, and then dinner.

    I live in Northern, NJ in West Milford...around Wayne where RTE 23 meets RTE 287. There are lots of great restaurants in the Paramus area or in Weehawken area depending on who wants to go.

    The down and dirty
    Where: In the North Eastern NJ area
    When: Sunday the 12th of September depending on when more people can go.
    Who: Anyone willing, exotic or not.
    How Much: Only the cost of lunch or dinner ($20 up to as much as you want)
    What we will do: Three options again.

    1.) A nice drive through the winding roads of Northern NJ with a stop at the historic iron mining district of West Milford ending at Wayne Manor. There are a number of house, furnaces, and things to see. This would be a short guided tour of the grounds and this beautiful Colonial Manor. These mines provided much of the iron to the American Revolution and Civil War, including the iron for the chain across the Hudson River. This would end with a dinner in the Paramus area, El Cid. (A great restaurant known for its amazing surf and turf.) A bunch of great restaurants with a few miles of Paramus. Once done with dinner this a upscale mall, and many upscale shops in the area for shopping
    El Cid
    205 Paramus Rd. (bet. Century Rd. & Rte. 4 W.)
    Paramus (201) 843-0123

    Napa Valley Grill
    1146 Garden State Plaza (Rtes. 4 & 17)
    Paramus (201) 845-5555

    2.) A nice drive through some country roads and then onto the highway down to the Weehawken area with dinner at The Chart House or Legal Seafood (bad name good Food.) This is less historic, but closer to NYC, which may allow more people to attend. Once dinner is over we will be close to Hoboken and NYC for any follow on fun or an easy out for people to head out on their own.
    The Chart House or Legal Seafood (bad name good food)
    Pier D-T (Harbor Blvd.)
    Weehawken (201) 348-6628
    A few more place right on the pier!

    Option #3

    Something everyone might be interested in is a drive up to West Point on the Hudson River (about 1.7 hours north of NYC.) We would have a few meeting spots one would be the Nyack Mall for NYC people and the other would be Willow Brook Mall for NJ people or at Woodberry Common for NY state people. The ride would have lots of secluded highways to drive on; followed by a walking and driving tour of The United States Military Academy at West Point run by me. (I will bone up on my Plebe knowledge before hand.) Then we will head to Painters Tavern in Cornwall for lunch or Dinner. This is very nice Tavern with an American/French/eclectic menu, with a descent wine menu and a good global beer selection.

    This option would be most of the day as the drives will be a little long. West Point is 45 minutes from West Milford, NJ and about 1.5 hours from Willow Brook Mall

    This will also make for the best Calendar Photo Backgrounds.

    If anyone is interested please PM or email me as I will not be in the States until 3 September. After that you can call me. I will provide a phone number and details on the day once we have a few people willing.

    Please reply with what car you plan to bring, number of total people, what option and day is best for you.

    David, i wont be able to attend unfortunately, however, my best friend owns one of the best Italian restaurants i've ever eaten at. The family-owned and operated Il Fresco... right by the Palisades mall on Kings Highway

    Il Fresco
    15 Kings Highway, Orangeburg, NY 10962
    (845) 398-0200

    reasonably priced entrees($17-$30), outstanding food and service, large servings and a great wine selection.

    Ask for Frankie, tell him rob sent you. if you let me know you're going ahead of time, he will accomodate you and maybe give you a break.

    keep your eyes open for Bill Murray and Steven Baldwin, they're in there all the time :)

    Thanks to tifosi for pointing this out. Let's definitely plan something that weekend. I like the options, although my preference is to do something that doesn't take the whole day.

    This should be fun!

    Are you an ex-pointer? My daughter is going there now - I opt for this trip. We're going up for the game this saturday. Going there yourself? Safe to park an F-Car there?

    Yes, I am a pointer. I am curently in Seoul, Korea and work just South at an Air field.

    Is it safe to park a car there, just be careful in some of the parking lots there are a few pot holes. Also try to park away from the crowd as these are football fans and they do like to drink.

    I will say one thing be prepared for a long wait at the gate with all the security that they now have!

    Enjoy the game, maybe Army will win one
