“Date Night” at Watchung Stable in Mountainside, Oct. 19


MOUNTAINSIDE, NJ – The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders is happy to announce that Watchung Stable and the Mosaico Restaurant are joining together to offer Union County’s second “Date Night at Watchung Stable” on Sunday, October 19.

Couples, ages 18 and older, are invited to go out on a date in a new and exciting way: on horseback! Visit Lake Surprise and meander through the woods and fields to discover the wealth of wildlife active at dusk in the picturesque Watchung Reservation. No riding experience is necessary; the ride will involve only a leisurely walk.

Participants must arrive at the stable by 3:45 p.m. to sign in. The ride, approximately one hour, will begin at 4:00 p.m. After the ride, couples may want to head over to Mosaico for a Northern Italian dinner since each couple will receive a $20 gift certificate courtesy of Mosaico.

Pre-registration and pre-payment is required, as space is limited. The fee for the Date Night
Trail Ride is $50 per couple for Union County residents and $60 per couple for out-of-county participants. Those wishing to participate should stop by Watchung Stable, located at
1160 Summit Lane, Mountainside, and sign up as soon as possible.

Couples wishing to find out about space availability, directions to Watchung Stable or information about other riding programs, should please call Watchung Stable at (908) 789-3665. For information about Mosaico Restaurant, located at 1072 Route 22 West in Mountainside, visit their website:
