Enjoy a craft beer with your burger? Both are half price on Wednesday nights at this Verona institution. TVs are plentiful, the crowd friendly, and it’s easy to get seated during the week. 642 Bloomfield  Avenue, Verona —Ken Schlager, Editor

This 1,200-acre park in Howell Township is one of my favorite spots to visit in the spring. The park offers 6.2 miles of hiking and biking trails and countless water activities—like kayaking, canoeing and boat tours. Don’t miss the awesome environmental center. —Breanne McCarthy, Associate Editor

A delight week after week. For this podcast, Paul F. Tompkins has a conversation with a special guest. He and a group of improvisers then make up a story utilizing details from the conversation. A recent episode was set on the Jersey Shore at a Saltwater Tuffy–not taffy–Shoppe. Find it on Earwolf.—Maryrose Mullen, Digital News Editor

My spring TV fix. The 10-part first season runs through April 5 on FX. Haven’t been watching? Catch up on demand. The cast includes John Travolta as defense attorney Robert Shapiro—a Jersey guy played by a Jersey guy. —Lauren Bowers, Research Assistant

This app—free on iTunes—helps you save on flights by analyzing “billions” of ticket prices. An alert lets you know when prices drop on your selected route.—Katie Kortebein
