Christmas shopping at Short Hills

Sunday, December 3rd, 2006 | All Things, Eats, Friends

After some surprisingly good pastrami with Russian slaw at Main Street’s idiosyncratically named Bagel Chateau, DK, LK, SYB, HH and I piled into the Taupe Wonder for a trip to Millburn township’s upscale shopping center, along winding low-hilled roads (hence: Short Hills) and multi-million dollar homes.

At the Mall: penguins everywhere! At the Santa Snow Globe…


…and at the coin fountain.

We did not stick around in Short Hills long enough that day to witness Santa Paws where — wait for it… — people could bring their dogs in to have a holiday picture taken with Santa. Infants, however, would not be photographed.

Ended up not doing any Christmas shopping after all, though we did get to refuel with snacks and hot chocolates at the American Express Members Lounge. And SYB finally, finally, gave in to the lure of the super small and shiny.

Back at Chez H, we were joined by SK and RL. Over meat-and-pepper-lovers Boboli and SYB’s homemade apple-cranberry pie, we busted myths about Diet Coke and Mentos, but Settlers and Telephone Pictionary would have to wait for another time.

The wait was worth it.
