The Hackettstown BID will host the fourth Autumn Lamplight Dinner Monday, September 11, from 6:00-9:00pm. Held in the parking lot along Moore Street, between Stella G’s and the firehouse, the Autumn Lamplight Dinner is a 21+ event that transforms the area into a magical outdoor courtyard, with guests sampling culinary specialties from Hackettstown restaurants representing diverse cuisines, from Italian to Thai/Indonesian to Latin American, Modern American to farm fresh.

Classic funk, rock, soul and blues group, Captains of Leisure, will perform for dining and dancing pleasure throughout the evening. Marley’s Gotham Grill will provide a cash bar.

BID Executive, Director Claudia Hadley, remarked, “the Autumn Lamplight Dinner is a great opportunity for people to come enjoy favorite restaurants or check out new independent restaurants, set in one elegant evening. Hackettstown has become a dining destination with various eateries and local breweries; the Autumn Lamplight Dinner definitely showcases that.”

Join friends, family and community for this distinguished community celebration in Hackettstown. This event is a great opportunity to get a taste of all the restaurants in one location.

    I am trying to buy a couple ticket for my parents and a single for me. I was able to purchase the couple ticket but when I try to purchase the single I get an error 400 – web page could not be found. I tried a different browser and just got a blank screen.

    • htwnbidAugust 25, 2017 at 12:40 PM

      Hi Deanna,

      Thank you for bringing this to our attention. The other two buttons seem to work, but the same error screen came up when it was tested. Please try again within the next hour and let me know how it went.
