When he is not fulfilling his duties as Chief of Staff for Assemblywoman Nancy Pinkin, Adam Neary volunteers as an Executive Producer for East Brunswick’s community theater, Playhouse 22.

This is an award winning theater house with a rich history that includes actors who have gone on to have great success. Neary gives a fantastic tour and interview. Further, we see clips from Playhouse 22’s past performances, and get a “behind the scenes”, or in theater parlance, behind the curtain look at the current production that just opened on November 3rd to the public: Agatha Christie’s, The MouseTrap.

DestinationEB Episode03 at Kaye Lynn Dance HD
“We Can Dance If We Want To!” Robin Kaye of Kaye-Lynn Dance Studio has so much energy and passion for dance it’s infectious! Seriously, a week later and I couldn’t stop myself from breaking out in random dance! Okay, now really seriously, in this webisode, I get to observe dance classes of various age groups, talk to Robin and her daughter, Jasi-Lynn, who run the studio, and to a few of their students as well. Oh yeah and I get to take an adult class myself where I might, just might, have embarrassed myself! Just a tad. I do it for you… because I care. From Movin’ With Mom, to teenagers, and adults, Kaye-Lynn Dance Studio offers classes starting at age 10 months, and on up. To check out the classes they are currently offering, you can click here. “Cause your friends don’t dance and if they don’t dance well they’re no friends of mine”.
DestinationEB Episode04 at Tuscana Salon
Now at first mention, when you hear Tuscana Salon and Jeff Schubert, you might be thinking to yourself, what can Jeff discover there? Well, firstly, it's not all about me (wait, what?). Secondly, Tuscana offers an array of services, and, just maybe, I will partake of one... We'll see how it goes. However, before we do that, I talk to Tuscana owner Tracy Stoessler, her fabulous staff, and her regular customers. Generally, when I think of barber shop talk, I'm thinking, Ice Cube, inner city, and sports. But this place has a personality of its own. Just another great neighborhood business in EB that has more of a family feel to it. To check out more of what they have to offer, go to tuscanasalon.com.
DestinationEB Episode06 at Cream Ridge Winery
Some grapes are green Some grapes are red If you don’t eat before your drink It will go right to your head! In this episode We will see A man who drinks rarely, Going to a winery! If I didn’t know better I’d suspect the staff at Creme Ridge Winery of sampling their own product while working! They have a real joy and passion for their work. I get the tour from Jerry Amabile and learn about the wine making process, and do some tasting of their fabulous wines. To check out more on Creme Ridge, go here: https://www.creamridgewines.com/
DestinationEB Episode07 at East Brunswick Community Garden
Looking for a fun new way to meet people and do something good for yourself? Then check out East Brunswick’s own Community Gardens. I do just that in this webisode of Destination EB. The East Brunswick Community Gardens is a place where you grow your own fruits, vegetables and spices. (I love me some all of the above!) Being the new year, EBCG may also help you check off several of those new year resolutions boxes: It gets you outside. It’s a little exercise. It promotes healthy eating. Being a little more social. And as Liti Haramaty of EBCG explains, from novice to expert, people at the gardens help each other out. Which is good for me because I don’t exactly have a green thumb! For more information and to see how easy it is to get started go to: http://ebcommunitygarden.webs.com/ Happy and healthy new year to you from the DEB team!
DestinationEB Episode08 at Yoga Dosha
Yoga is a great physical workout with spiritual and emotional benefits. Its been a while since I’ve taken a class. Its been since never that I took one in over 100 degree heat! But hot yoga is a thing and I was game to give it try! More than just yoga, Yoga Dosha owner Phebe Khalil incorporates the aryvedic concept of Dosha into her practice. Being a little new agey myself, I was very interested in asking Phebe about that, and finding out what my Dosha is. Yoga Dosha has great classes, (including ones at “normal” temperatures) and retreats too. For more information you can go to: www.yogadoshanj.com Don’t forget to be properly hydrated before and after you engage in any activity! Watch me in this webisode and you’ll see why!
