GAL APPROVED! Waterfront Dining In N.J.! Plus: Save Your Bag & The Tonys!By The DivaGals | June 10, 2016 | Gal Approved
WATER. Summer is here. If you live in New York City, like a bunch of us DivaGals do, sometimes you like to leave the boroughs. That’s why we hopped a dinghy and headed to ΓÇª New Jersey! Yep, we went to Surf City Megabar & Restaurant, which has opened for the 2016 summer season. Located right on the Hudson River, this indoor-outdoor space seats 400 people and offers a fun array of mixed drinks, apps, entrees and desserts.
With pina coladas in hand, we enjoyed a sampling of apps like calamari, coconut shrimp and lobster rolls. Then it was on to burgers (from beef to mahi mahi) with crispy fries, and our big entree of the night: seafood paella. The evening ended with bites of chocolate truffle balls and key lime pie. With a chill atmosphere — there’s no overpowering music so you can actually have a conversation around the bar’s fire pits — it’s a perfect escape that’s only a 15-minute boat ride away! Surf City is located in Jersey City, N.J. See more pics on our DivaGals FB page.
WEAR. We love our high-end designer bags, but sometimes they never make it out of our closets because we’re afraid of what havoc rainy weather may do to them. But now we’ve found an inventive and gorgeous solution! Save My Bag are coveralls for our pricey purses and totes.
Coming in an endless array of colors and patterns, we just stick our bags inside and don’t worry about what Mother Nature wants to do outside (we’re pretty sure she’s got a few Save My Bags of her own!). Made from soft poly-lyrca, these bags are so chic … Come to think of it, our designer handbags may have to stay in the closet a little longer as we take our Save My Bag outside on its own! See more bags on our DivaGals FB page!
WATCH. Don’t forget to watch the TONY Awards live Sunday, June 12 at 8 p.m. on CBS. It’s truly a multicultural affair with top contenders from shows like The Color Purple, Shuffle Along , Eclipsed and of course, Hamilton!
