Barry’s Buns • Wildwood Crest
Owners Joel Singer, an accomplished pastry chef, and his wife, Jen, are bringing their sticky buns and other baked treats to New Jersey. After having to close one of their two locations in Pennsylvania, the Singers are headed to Wildwood, and are set to open on May 7. Sticky Bun flavors include Apple Crumb, Maple Bacon and the classic Cream Cheese Iced. Other baked goods on the menu include Cinnamon Rolls, Crumb Cakes, Pies and Waffles, topped with Nutella, fruit, peanut butter and cinnamon. To celebrate the opening, the Singers will paint rocks with the Barry’s Bun logo and place them around their Wildwood Crest neighborhood; customers who find a rock and bring it to the store will receive a half-dozen freshly baked buns. Open daily, 7 am–2 pm, after May 7.

Schmitty’s • Hoboken
What was the Nag’s Head Pub has become a new, dog-friendly bar called Schmitty’s.

Hoping to be the best family- and dog-friendly spot in Hoboken, Schmitty’s has bars on the first and second floors, as well as a billiards area. The backyard features synthetic turf and an outdoor fire for people and pets to enjoy together. Open now.
