ArtToro is unveiled outside market

“ArtToro” the ox was installed Saturday at its temporary home, Pennington Quality Market.
From Aug. 15 through Oct. 19, the entire Hopewell Valley will become an outdoor art museum exhibiting 68 fiberglass oxen painted and embellished by local artists, participating in the public art project launching the Hopewell Valley Arts Council.

Instead of hanging on walls and sitting on shelves, the colorful and creative 8-foot-long oxen sculptures will dot the Valley landscape — in front of shops, in the town centers, in suburban neighborhoods and in rural fields.

BUSINESS HIGHLIGHTS: Waiters' Race returns to Palmer Square in July
Fun surprises I grew up in a little fishing village on the tip of Long Island, except when tourist season came, when it seemed more like it was a part of the sixth borough of New York City. Anyway, I admit that I'm a seafood snob. Fresh fish to me means you go to the dock and buy it off the boat. So nobody was more shocked than me when I found myself having the best grilled tuna sandwich, ever, at Blue Point Grill on Nassau Street in Princeton. It was terrific. So, of course, I stopped into their fish market next store afterwards. It is full of fresh seafood like I remember as a kid and it also has some very unexpected surprises, like fresh local produce. Blue Point Grill is at 258 Nassau St. in Princeton. Read more...
