It took the better part of the day, but Emily Wynne finally came up with the winning answer to yesterday’s “Doors Of Verona” contest: Jack’s Cafe. For her guess, she got a gift certificate to Bello By Daniel Ross, the barbershop in the center of town. Emily performed in “The Mystery of Edwin Drood” with Verona High School’s Spotlight Players last month, and we hope to see her, and all the rest of the Spotlights, back on stage soon.
Jack’s Cafe has been a go-to breakfast and lunch spot in Verona for years, known for soups that are a welcome choice on chilly days like today. Jack’s continues to offer curbside pick during the current health crisis, and it has been stepping up to feed healthcare workers on the front lines. Last week, it delivered 30 meals to the Mountainside Medical Center Family Practice Group in Verona.
On to the new April 16 photo for “Doors Of Verona”, which you can see above. Fred Goode, who came up with the idea for our original “Where In Verona Is It?” contest a decade ago, has been going around town, photographing the front doors of businesses that we can’t enter until the restrictions imposed by the state to fight the outbreak of the novel coronavirus COVID-19 are lifted.
MyVeronaNJ.com is spending $1,000 to buy gift certificates from Verona businesses that will be award to the winner of each day’s contest. The day’s gift certificate won’t match the location photographed, so we can tell you that the winner of today’s location will be getting a gift certificate from The Towne Scoop, Verona’s home-grown ice cream parlor.
Each day’s contest will remain open until we have a winner. So keep checking back and guessing. And if you win once, you can’t win again.
No, not Salugo Bistro
Ding, ding, ding: We have a winner. Yes, it is Grimaldi’s. Watch your email for your gift certificate to The Towne Scoop!
