SOUTH ORANGE, NJ - The second annual South Orange Food Stroll and Pub Crawl, which was sponsored by Natalie Farrell of Weichert  Realtors and hosted by the South Orange Village Center Alliance (SOVCA), was held on Sunday evening, May 7.

The festivities began at the SOVCA booth on Sloan Street, where participants received their wristbands and maps. In addition to food and drink at the restaurants, several stores also offered merchant specials, with a total of 17 stops on the stroll.

Those on the stroll were able to wander throughout town at their own pace and sample a wide-range of food from area restaurants including smoothies, sliders, meatballs, tacos, ice cream, sushi, spring rolls, and Sloppy Joe's. Jenny from Pandang on Village Plaza (which was serving sushi rolls, spring rolls, basil fried rice, and thai iced tea) said she was happy to see new customers, and Yanick of Papillon 25 on Valley Street (which offered pineapple wings, curry chicken, and spring sangria) also said she was pleased with the turnout at the event.

Matt from Town Hall Delicatessen agreed as well, "we had quite a rush at the start of the event and it’s been nice to see all these people getting exposed to the wide variety of food in our town."
