We thought yesterday’s door would be a tough one to guess. While more people in Verona are now riding bikes because of the outbreak of the novel coronavirus COVID-19, not everyone has shopped at Electric Spokes, the Verona franchise of Voltaire Cycles. MyVeronaNJ.com wrote about Electric Spokes when they first came to town almost five years ago, and when they branched into franchising. (Electric Spokes is only open for service and repairs now, but take time to browse the bikes, trikes and electric skateboards on its website.)
Ah but Jeff Shilling had other ideas. Jeff is a veteran of the “Where In Verona Is It?” contests: He won six times in the original contests (we have a one-and-done rule for winners now).
Jeff has one other advantage: He volunteers with the Verona Rescue Squad and, earlier this year, the VRS purchased two electric bikes from Electric Spokes so that it could provide more mobile support at events like the UNICO Labor Day 5K and the Verona Pool. Jeff came up with the winning guess in about an hour and for his efforts won a gift certificate to Verona Yoga. MyVeronaNJ.com is spending at least $1,000 to buy gift certificates from Verona businesses while the “Doors Of Verona” contest runs. Jeff is a very nice guy and, when he was informed of his win, he asked us to donate the gift certificate to the dispatchers at the Verona Police Department.
But today is a new day, and that means a new door photograph by Fred Goode. The winner of Doors Of Verona: April 15 will get a gift certificate to Bello By Daniel Ross, the barbershop in the center of town.
Each day’s contest will remain open until we have a winner, and if you win once, you can’t win again. So, where was today’s photo taken?

Ding, ding, ding: We have a winner! Yes, Emily, it is Jack’s Cafe. Watch your email for the gift certificate you won, and thanks for playing.
