With most of the power still out in town, not much is open; Berkley School open Saturday for warming up and charging electronics.
Sandy slammed New Milford, leaving thousands without power and trees down all over town leaving almost all of the restaurants closed for business all week. Garden Cafe and Jersey Boys on Henley are open for business. So is Pancho's on Main Street, but they are running on generators. Borderline Bagels on Madison has been the morning spot to get hot coffee and bagels, catch up on conversation with neighbors in the north end of town, and get warm. As for convenience stores, Krauszer's on River Road and Welsh Farms on Henley are both open, but have limited supplies since deliveries have been delayed due to Sandy. CVS across from the Brookchester Apartments had power returned late Friday afternoon. Borough officials turned the Berkley School …

Francisco Sotomayor's sculpture "American Woman" paid a visit to Wine & Roses Saturday before heading to the New York City Metro Show
The white marble lady reclining on a grand piano holding a single rose on Saturday outside of Wine & Roses was a piece of art sculpted by Francisco Sotomayor of Woodland Park, Colorado. Sotomayor's sculpture, "American Woman," was hand carved from one single piece of marble and weighs 10,000 pounds. It is the only marble sculpture in the world to have eyelashes. "American Woman" will be on display at the New York City Metro Show from May 10 to May 13 at the Meadowlands Exposition Center in Secaucus.

Lou and Chris Denis invite you to stop in today to celebrate Wine & Rose's 25th Anniversary.
Twenty-five years ago today, 29-year-old Lou Denis swung open the doors of Wine & Roses, and his heart, to the people of New Milford. Twenty-five years later, he's still doing the same thing every single day, with his brother Chris by his side, on the corner of River Road and Henley Ave. For patrons of Wine & Roses and Garden Cafe, Denis' good humor has become as predictable as the spring rains, but more eagerly anticipated. And as his business has grown, so has his heart. In fact, ask anyone who knows Lou and they'll tell you that he is the heart and soul of New Milford. Garden Cafe's lunch crowd agreed. When told that Wine & Roses was celebrating its 25th anniversary, there was not one person who did not smile and offer their …

New Milford merchants hope you skip the mall madness Saturday support locally-owned businesses.
Sandwiched between the two busiest shopping days of the season, Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Saturday is the second annual "Small Business Saturday," and local merchants are hoping it's a boon to business. The slogan of the American Express campaign is "If millions of Americans shop small, it will be huge." As residents drive around New Milford and see storefronts that have been vacated in the last few years, it's evident how difficult it has been for small business owners. Many business owners had the added expenses of flood damage and clean-up this year. Businesses are hoping shoppers kick-off the holiday season by frequenting the shops of people who choose to root their business in New Milford. This is by no means a comprehensive list…

Lou Denis gets ready to celebrate 25 years
As Lou Denis, owner of Wine & Roses and Garden Cafe, reflects upon his career he laughs, "Man, what a wild ride." Anyone who knows Denis knows that he does not work to live. He lives to work. As he prepares for the 25th anniversary of Wine & Roses in February, those words never rang truer because he's working harder than ever to serve the people of New Milford, and Bergen County, by constantly offering unique experiences like Oktoberfest, jazz nights or making the holiday just a little less stressful by baking pies for your Thanksgiving feast. When he was 16 years old Denis lied about his age to get a job at Korvettes. He was there only a short time when the manager of the toy department left. It was right before the start of the …

New Milford Chamber of Commerce meets with Rep. Garrett at Garden Cafe this morning
It seemed appropriate that on his 5th District Business Tour, Rep. Scott Garrett (R-NJ) came to New Milford to talk to the Chamber of Commerce about the effects of Hurricane Irene on local businesses on a morning with driving rains. Delayed by rain and traffic on Rt. 208, Garrett was on a listening tour as Mayor Ann Subrizi, Council President Howard Berner, Councilmen Colucci and Rebsch, and Chamber of Commerce members Michael LaGratta and Lou Denis shared the devastation wreaked by Hurricane Irene on area residents and businesses. Garrett listened intently as Mayor Subrizi requested his help in mandating that United Water lower the reservoir level prior to any anticipated storm to prevent the severity of flooding that New Milford …
