EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - A local business needs your help. Wednesday, a car crashed through the front window of Pinot's Pallette, a popular local "paint and sip" business in the Stop and Shop Mall off Route 18 South. Nobody was injured - as no employees were present and the driver was unscathed - but the business really took a hit.
Franchise owner Lillian Feldman reports that the accident involved a single driver and an accelerator misjudgment that sent the sedan through the shop's window. There was lots of glass breakage and damage to an interior wall that Pinot's shares with the adjoining CKO Boxing. "They lost their office, " Feldman said.
During the time of reconstruction, Feldman has construction an "interactive art piece, " encouraging locals to interact with the painting, take a photo, and post it to social media. Some photos will be selected as winners and the photographers will receive free classes at the location.
"I just want to reiterate that we are open for business, and we made lemonade out of a bad situation, " said Feldman. "This is another example how paint can always make things better."
Please post your photos on Instagram to #pinotspaletteeb or on Facebook. The event scheduled for this romantic weekend - Paris Rendezvous - will still happen this Saturday.
