One restaurant's lost customer is another restaurant's new regular.
I had a good workout on Tuesday. Granted, it took me a week to motivate myself back into the gym, but once I was there, the workout before spinning, and then the spin class, made me feel like I was king of the world. So, of course, I had to enjoy a healthy meal afterward. Here, I am going to call out Muscle Maker Grill for closing earlier than their sign says. It was 7:30 p.m. Their sign said 8 p.m. and they were still inside, but the door was locked. The man I believe is the manager seemed to make a hand motion as if to say they ran out of food. That's fine. But, if you're going to close earlier than your sign says, at least write a note saying you closed early that day. If this is a regular practice, just change your hours. Anyway, …

The "King of the Couch" video game tournament was held on July 23 at Hyatt Morristown.
On July 23, a few hundred dedicated video gamers descended upon Morristown in what is called King of the Couch. Some traveled from Boston, south Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania. The fee they pay at the door dictates the games they compete in. The high rollers and the biggest crowds could be found around the Mortal Kombat tables, but there were plenty of other games for people to participate in, including Halo, Street Fighter IV, Naruto and more.

The folding bike/train method beats bicycle, electric car by minutes.
On Wednesday, May 25, Marty's Reliable Cycle and TransOptions organized a challenge ... a "commuter challenge." Three alternative modes of transportation–a bicycle, Chevrolet Volt electric car and a combination of train travel and folding bike–set out from the Madison Train Station at 8:05 a.m., with the ultimate destination the Hyatt Morristown, about four miles away. While Matthew Vance, the train/folding bike competitor, ultimately won out, he only did so by a few minutes. And, in the end, everyone that sought an alternative to their regular ways of getting around were winners. Check out Morristown Patch's video of the journey.

Well, actually, Matthew Vance, who took the train, won.
For some of the competitors, their only fuel was the strong, flavorful coffee found at Drip in Madison. As the whistle blew from the incoming 8:05 a.m. NJ Transit train bound for Morristown from Madison, Matthew Vance, an attorney in Morristown, prepared to board, Dahon-brand folding bicycle in hand. Meanwhile, Backyard Bike Tours owner Bill Ruddick, atop his fancy Specialized Roubaix road bicycle, clicked into his pedals and headed out. David Baranauskas, of Wigder Chevrolet in Livingston, stepped into the dealership's Chevrolet Volt electric car, turned on the vehicle and silently drove away. The "Commuter Challenge," organized by Marty's Reliable Cycle and TransOptions, was set up to examine alternative means of transportation besides …
