The past few years have seen exciting developments in Hackettstown – the resurgence of fine dining, new business recruitment, improvements to the streetscape, and the addition of quaint community events that represent our small town charm and bring new visitors to the area. Our inaugural Autumn Lamplight Dinner last September was tremendously successful and was enjoyed by over 225 guests under a beautiful full moon and hundreds of twinkling lights, with live music in the background.
Restaurants Participating to date:
Mama’s Restaurant & Cafe Baci
Marley’s Gotham Grill
Tracey’s Candy Shoppe
To continue this progress and celebrate all that Hackettstown has to offer, the Hackettstown BID will host our 2nd Annual Autumn Lamplight Dinner on Monday, August 31st from 6- 9:00 pm. Once again, Moore Street, the Colonial Musketeers Gazebo and the adjacent parking lot will be transformed into a magical outdoor courtyard, with guests sampling culinary specialties from Hackettstown restaurants representing many diverse cuisines, from Italy to Thailand to Columbia and beyond.
In addition, the nine-piece band, Alternate Groove, will perform dinner and dance music. Marley’s Gotham Grill will be on hand with a cash bar, featuring beer and wine. (Sorry NO BYOB, per state law). This event is ideal for those 21 and over.
BID Director Claudia Hadley commented, “Hackettstown has become the dining destination and the Autumn Lamplight Dinner is the perfect event to highlight the many cuisines Hackettstown offers. Diners have the chance to try everything from Latin American to Vietnamese. You can travel the world right here in Hackettstown and never worry about missing a flight.”
Please join us for this festive, community celebration of Hackettstown’s eclectic and memorable dining choices. If you’ve been hearing about Hackettstown’s restaurants, but haven’t yet had the opportunity to try them all, the Autumn Lamplight Dinner is your chance to sample many of them, all in one location.
