Of all the ingredients that make for agood party , the most important to me — by far — isthe invitation list . The right combo of friends and loved ones guarantees amemorable time ( though great food and entertainment never hurts , either ).
In the same sense , it ’ sthe people who make Montclair the dynamic town it is ... Creative people like Bobbi Brown , whose new beauty product line , Jones Road , has its own retail shop , the first in the nation . And Mike Lindle , an MHS ’ 11 graduate who ’ s producing award-winning drone footage for his company , Framework Films . And Daniel Anderson , afine artist whose sculptures were installed at the World Trade Center onSeptember 21 , World Peace Day . ( Adam Harrington , assistant coach and director ofplayer engagement for the Brooklyn Nets , lives in Montclair-adjacent Glen Ridge , so we ’ ll give him ashout out here , too , as we do at greater length inour interview with him , “ NBA Basketball Gives Back .”)
Speaking of parties , now that we ’ re looking forward to giving and going to them again , world-class event planner and Montclair resident CINDY SCHWEICH Rebecca Merritt shares tips on how to have fun while staying safe at HANDLER this moment in COVID . In “ All in the Details ,” she draws on decades of experience working with clients ranging from Saatchi , Candy Crush and TLC Network to Montclair Art Museum , Jazz House Kids and the new , highly-anticipated Montclair Mezzanine . So much to celebrate ; happy holidays , Montclair ! ■
