Be There

From classic rock and comedy shows to flea markets and chili cook-offs, there’s something for everyone this month in Bergen County.




JAN 10 & 27 Attention, budding photographers: There’s much more to your DSLR camera than the auto setting. Bergen County Camera in Westwood is hosting a PHOTOGRAPHY CLASS (6:30–7:30 p.m. on the 10th, 11 a.m.–12 p.m. on the 27th), where participants can learn about the features of their camera and improve their skills. Admission is FREE for those who purchased a camera from the store in December, and $25 for all others. For more information, visit eventbrite.com.

JAN 12 The trees may be bare but that doesn’t mean you can’t add some greenery to your home! Stop by PLANT NITE at Miller’s Ale House in Paramus and create your own Zen or Winter Woodland garden in a black ceramic planter. The event, for ages 21 and older, begins at 1 p.m., but attendees are encouraged to arrive at least 15 minutes early. Tickets: $55. Visit plantnite.com for more info.

JAN 12 You’ll want to add the All Seasons Chamber Players to your next playlist after listening to the group perform its BACH TO BLUES concert at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Harrington Park at 5 p.m. There is a $10 suggested donation at the door. For more information, visit allseasonschamberplayers.org.

JAN 14 If you’d like to get creative with colors, head to The Mason Jar in Mahwah for PAINT NITE, from 7–9 p.m. The theme of this create-your-own-masterpiece session is “A Northern Winter,” so order a hot drink, get inspired by the frosty temperatures and paint a beautiful snowy landscape. Tickets: $45. Visit paintnite.com for more info.

JAN 16 Baby, it’s cold outside so head indoors to the Mahwah Library for a session of PAINTING CERAMIC MUGS. The event, led by Sorin Lungu from Creatively Yours, takes place from 6:30–8:30 p.m. and is open to all adults who want to decorate a mug pretty enough to hold their hot cocoa. Tickets are $15, and pre-registration is required. For more details, visit mahwahlibrary.com.

JAN 16 You may think you know The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast and Frozen, but see how much of a fan you really are at DISNEY MOVIE TRIVIA NIGHT, 8–9:30 p.m. at Tommy Fox’s Public House in Bergenfield. Prizes will be awarded to the individuals and teams that correctly answer the most questions related to Disney’s classic animated films. Admission is FREE, but reservations are required.
