BERNARDS, NJ - An anticipated discussion about events at the Farmstead Arts -- including whether alcohol should be served at the township-owned arts facility, and neighbors' complaints about July's "Bayou in the Barn" -- has been put off for now.

Neighbors had approached the Township Committee last month to say that the music at the Farmstead Arts' "Bayou at the Barn" food and music celebration had sounded like a rock concert.

Nearby residents also asked the Township Committee to reconsider approval of a pilot program to allow alcohol to be served at some events at the arts center at 450 King George Road, which primarily hosts arts shows, arts classes and sometimes live theater.

Although the issue was tentatively scheduled to be revisited at this past Tuesday's Township Committee meeting, Mayor John Malay said beforehand it had been delayed at the request of the Farmstead's officers.

On Tuesday, Township Administrator Bruce McArthur said that the volunteers who organize events and operate the arts center had asked for more time. He said he believed that the volunteers running the Farmstead also wanted to talk further with neighbors, many of whom described themselves as generally supportive of most of the art center's activities.
