We would like to give a big shout-out and THANK YOU to Mathis House at 600 Main, a B&B and Victorian Tea Room as they have welcomed us and are now our new home for our weekly lunch.
 
This hidden gem in Downtown Toms River is a Victorian Bed & Breakfast and Victorian Tea Room, where you will find elegant accommodations for an overnight stay and an afternoon tea experience. The food is fantastic as well as the service - when looking for a place to go we highly recommend Mathis House!

Last week, Christie from East Coast Escape Room talked to us about their escape room. If you have never been to an escape room and you like puzzles you have to try them!
How does it work? It's a fun, real-life adventure game using clues, keys, codes, and hands-on tasks! You and your team will assemble inside a themed room and have 60 minutes to complete the objective. Book your next adventure on their website: https://www.eastcoastescaperoom.com/
