Oink and Moo, a food truck that has operated in New Jersey since 2012, is making big news! The truck is known throughout NJ towns like Hoboken and Asbury Park, but after expanding to Philadelphia, it won a Vendy award for Rookie of the Year. Now, The Daily Meal has rated Oink and Moo the No. 2 best food truck in the United States. The food is straight up BBQ—beef brisket or pulled pork sliders, chili, tacos, quesadillas, and ribs. There is also a brick-and-mortar location in Florham Park.
We profiled Oink and Moo in our Food Truck Roundup in the Summer 2014 issue. Care to read it again? You can find it on our website! Food trucks—and the smiles they elict—never get old and bring a fun twist to any event. Congrats, Oink and Moo. We’re bursting with Jersey pride for your success.
In the soon-to-be released Spring/Summer 2022 issue of Mountain Meetings, I write about Mountain Activities 101. That’s not the official title of the article—it’s actually Mild to Wild—but it is a primer about the many amazing activities groups can enjoy in the mountains, from cave tours in Bend, Oregon, to a kayaking, hiking and hot springs excursion near Boulder City, Nevada.
With meetings returning to normal as the COVID-19 pandemic levels out, outdoor mountain pursuits are finding more time on meeting agendas. Taking events outdoors not only boosts attendees’ comfort level as they ease back into in-person meetings, time spent in nature is proven to improve brain health and stimulate creative thinking as well.
We’ll be looking at this topic in-depth in the Spring/Summer 2022 issue of Mountain Meetings. Consider this as an introduction to some of the possibilities.
