This will be New Jersey Horror Con’s ninth show in New Jersey and sixth in Atlantic City on the old casino floor. But they aren’t stopping there. The company has expanded to Pennsylvania with PA Horror Con and the Horror Sideshow Market, which is like a flea market focusing on the vendors more than the celebrities.

If you’re not into horror, you’ll want to check out their brand new show coming in June to Showboat in Atlantic City called “Classic Rewind Weekend,” which focuses more on pop culture.

The Ultimate Guide to New Jersey Brewpubs

From the website that gave you the "Friendliest bars" and places to watch the game, comes the ultimate guide to New Jersey brewpubs.

So what's a "brew pub"?

According to Thompson Island's Article on the differences between a craft brewery, microbrewery, brewpub & gastropub, it says:

At a brewpub, the beer is primarily brewed for sale inside the restaurant or bar. Where it's legally allowed, brewpubs may sell beer to go or distribute it to some offsite destinations."

New Jersey has tons of Brewpubs, some of which have been around for years and some that have just opened in the past year.
