If antique shopping, kettle corn, and waterfront settings are all things that make your tail wag, there is cause for celebration this weekend. On Sunday, June 14th, the 13th annual Cold Spring Antique Show will commence with more than 60 antique dealers from around the northeast. Merchants will be carting everything from oak dressers to oriental rugs to paintings to china to vintage toys to country tables and turn of the 20th century baubles. And with a free shuttle to and from the Cold Spring Station, this is one antique extravaganza you won’t want to miss. [ColdSpringAntiqueShow]
New Jersey’s got a lot going for it, between Long Beach Island, Atlantic City, wind farms, and Liberty State Park. And now through July 5th, the Garden State is pushing some fun travel incentives—how-to poker and blackjack lessons, a shark touch tank, salt-water taffy, Nets cheerleaders, restaurant day, and a golf simulator—at their Jersey Shore pop-up store near Union Square. Special hotel discounts and lavish grand prizes will be available on-site. [Racked]
