Hoeffners in Morristown for Prime Beef, handmade natural sausages, succulent bacon and smoked pork chops from their smokehouse. Local lamb. And sometimes a popup mixologist.

Top This is clearly the best on this list by far!!!

So, a women's boutique is Morristown's best-kept secret over great historic sites such as Macculloch Hall and Historic Speedwell?? Pathetic and sad.

The historic sites have been around forever and are hardly a secret. Perhaps only to people unfamiliar with the town they are unknowns. The category is "best kept secret" it doesn't take away from the importance of these historical sites. How about supporting a new local business, which by the way is something besides the historical aspect that is great about Morristown. If not for local businesses we would be nothing but banks and chains like so many other towns. Honestly, is your comment really necessary?
Tryclyde August 21, 2012 at 06:10 PM
Yes, it is really necessary. Obviously, what happened here is that Top This launched a mini campaign to get the most votes and that's why it won...I also find it funny how you took my comment to be anti-local business. I'm all for supporting businesses in Morristown and do it myself. However, the beautiful gardens at Macculloch Hall or the great site of Fort Nonsense are much better "best-kept" secrets. If you stopped random people on South Street and asked them where either of these sites are, I guarantee that at least 3 out of 4 would have no idea. The fact is that very few people go to some of these historic sites and they are great choices for Morristown's best-kept secret. This is a town steeped in all kinds of history and a boutique wins best-kept secret? I'm sure it's a great store and I hope it's successful, but I stand by my comment, it's sad that it won for this category.

Macculloch Hall and Fort Nonsense were both nominated in other categories. If you are not anti-local business then why do you have such a strong need to put down the fact that one won for this category? Its not as though it takes away from the importance of these sites. Besides, if you notice the numbers, businesses took the top three spots. If it wasn't a boutique it would've been something else. Your comment just seems unnecessarily negative.

Ok, I'll tell all the men and children in the area that they should go check out Top This because it's Morristown's best-kept secret....The other outdoor/nature/cultural spots on this list didn't get more votes because people don't go to them! Hence, they're perfect for winning best-kept secret. You can't have people vote on what a best-kept secret is because chances are, they don't know about it. So instead, you guys went to all your friends and sent emails out and said, "Vote for us on Morristown Patch!", and you won. The whole thing is comical.

Yikes! Sorry you don't feel as though we deserved to win Tryclyde. Yes, of course we asked everyone to support us and vote. Would you not do the same thing if you owned a small business? We are off the beaten path, not easy to find, open less than a year and of course we would welcome anyone finding out about us that we didn't already know. It was not intended to take away from anything else in Morristown that is great. There wasn't really another category we felt we could fit into and in fact, the way we often advertise is that we are a "hidden gem". On another note-thank you SO much to everyone who did vote, it means a lot, even if we didn't win its great to have the support. Much appreciated!
