FRANKLIN TOWNSHIP, NJ - Looking for something to do this weekend?
Want to end the week with a drink poolside? How about showing your Warrior pride? Maybe you’d rather take a tour of our local sensory garden?
Well, you can do all that and more right here in town.
Check out TAPinto Franklin Township’s roundup of some of the best things to do close to home.
Friday, Aug. 4
New Dessert Shop in Somerset on Hamilton. Open today 11a-6p, Sat 11a-5p and Sun 11a-3pm.
BAM Desserts consist of three partners/friends with a vision to start a specialty bakery offering an array of flavors and something different. The name derives from the first initial of each owner. We decided to focus our recipes on creative cake flavors. Although we love icing, we want the flavor to stand on its own with icing as an accent. The goal for our treats is less icing and MORE FLAVOR.
Saturday, Aug. 5
