Proudly sporting that ugly duckling of a garment will get you a free holiday pizza, featuring Nutella, chocolate peppermint bark, red and green sprinkles, powdered sugar and peppermint flavored whip cream. The only catch, explains Liberty Hall Pizza's owners Danny Popkin and Chris Bryan, "is that you have to get your photo taken for Liberty Hall's ugly sweater social media collage." A small price to pay for a mouthwatering holiday dessert pizza! "Holiday sweaters have gotten a bad rap," said Bryan. "We thought we would turn the jokes and snickers into a delicious win-win for those who dare to wear them into our restaurant and pose for a picture."


Liberty Hall's ugly sweater promotion takes place Friday, November 27, Saturday & Sunday November 28 & 29 and every Thursday through Christmas, which includes December 3, 10 and 17 (Liberty Hall Pizza is closed on December 24th - Christmas Eve).

Opened in December 2014, Liberty Hall Pizza was named "one of the top 25 pizzerias in New Jersey" by Peter Genovese on The authentic, Neapolitan pizzeria serves a dozen wood-fired pizzas along with garden-fresh salads and draught root beer floats.

Who Makes the Best Pizza? Lambertville Diners Will Decide December 15


Lambertville, NJ – Two long-time friends and pizza artisans will now be fierce competitors in an epic battle over who makes the best pizza. Liberty Hall Pizza's Pizza Wars 1.0 pits Liberty Hall's Chris Bryan against Peter Lombardi of Lombardi Pizza Company in Martinsville, N.J. on Tuesday, December 15th  from 5-9 p.m. The two Pizzaiolos will be baking for bragging rights and a "cheesy" silver chalice for the winner. Each has created a special pizza for the competition and diners will vote on their favorite.


Liberty Hall's co-owner Chris Bryan has conceived a Marinara Fra Diavolo Pizza with plum tomatoes, basil, oregano, black pepper, garlic, caramelized onions and shaved Asiago cheese topped with arugula and chile infused olive oil and finished with roasted garlic Parmesan butter brushed crust. Peter Lombardi will be preparing The Zoe: Bufala mozzarella, sun-dried cherries, basil, parmesan, finished with aged prosciutto di parma and chili infused honey. The restaurant will offer a special: both pizzas for $25, or customers can order either one for $17.


"Peter and I have been friends for over five years, made countless pizzas alongside each other and traveled to Italy together to tour the Antimo Caputo Flour factory and sample some of the best pizza in the world. We thought it would be fun to have this friendly competition to see who customers thought made the best Neapolitan pizza," quipped Bryan.


Peter Lombardi owns the food truck and restaurant that bears his name in Martinsville, N.J. The 31-year-old has an Associate's Degree in Professional Cooking & Baking from Baltimore International College and a B.S. in Hotel/Restaurant Management from Fairleigh Dickinson University in New Jersey. He has traveled to Italy several times to study the food and culture and has also trained with master pizza chef Enzo Coccia in Naples, Italy.


The entire Liberty Hall Pizza menu will also be available along with the guest chef's pizzas for all Guest Pizzaiolo events, which take place once a month. The next guest pizzaiolo will be Chef Josh Homacki of The Inn at Barley Sheaf Farm.

Liberty Hall Pizza in Lambertville is Turning Two


Lambertville's Neapolitan Pizzeria Celebrates its 2nd Anniversary with Free Pizza and Root Beer on Monday, January 23rd from 6-8 p.m.

Lambertville, NJ – Liberty Hall Pizza owners Chris Bryan and Danny Popkin are celebrating a second successful year of providing delicious Neapolitan pizza to locals and visitors to the historic, charming New Jersey community. For the second year in a row, the pair has decided to hold a customer appreciation night to say 'thank you' to their neighbors, loyal patrons and to all those who've supported them over the past year. Liberty Hall Pizza is normally closed on Mondays, but on January 23rd from 6 to 8 p.m. Bryan and Popkin will be giving away complimentary Margherita pizzas and tumblers of Victory draught root beer to the first 200 guests who show up. The special will be dine-in only, with no substitutions available. Liberty Hall's regular menu will not be offered that night.


"We're very proud of our accomplishments in 2016," said Bryan. We made the list of the Top 25 Pizzerias in New Jersey by Peter Genovese on for the second year in a row; launched a new 'Pizza for a Purpose' charity program to help local non-profits raise funds for community initiatives; expanded our restaurant with the opening of the 'The Back Room,' a new, premium event space for private parties, celebrations and corporate events; our highly acclaimed Guest Pizzaiolo Series is going strong with exciting surprise guests scheduled for the new year; and we continually strive to make our restaurant the premier destination for pizza lovers in the region. It's been a great year!" exclaimed Bryan.

Since opening its doors two years ago, the culinary team at Liberty Hall Pizza has baked more than 75,000 pizzas and assembled 34,000 salads. Some other notable stats to chew on: the business used 38,000 pounds of flour, 1,870 gallons of tomato sauce and more than eight tons of mozzarella and mozzarella di Bufala!

The popular pizzeria has been going non-stop all year long, and it's time to give the Valoriani oven a break, said Bryan. He will turn off the wood-fired brick oven for ten days from Monday, January 30th through Wednesday, February 8th, providing a much-needed rest for the staff and owners! The restaurant will reopen on Thursday, February 9th

A Chorus Line Comes to Lambertville April 27 - 29


Celebrate International Dance Day with one of musical theater's signature dance productions when the Downtown Performing Arts Center and Curtain Up Productions present "A Chorus Line".  Set for four performances, "A Chorus Line" will be performed at South Hunterdon Regional High School, 301 Mt. Airy-Harbourton Rd., Lambertville, N.J. on Friday, April 27 at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, April 28 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, April 29 at 3 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. The show contains adult content.

Choreographer Michael Bennett conceived of "A Chorus Line" as a tribute to a dancer's life. Bennett recorded over 40 hours of conversations with Broadway actors to compile the stories that make up the musical. Bennett worked with playwright/novelist James Kirkwood and former dancer Nicholas Dante to organize and solidify the book, Academy award winner Marvin Hamlisch composed the music and Broadway newcomer Edward Kleban wrote the lyrics. Their combined work, including some great one-liners by an uncredited Neil Simon, resulted in a story that blended all elements of musical theatre seamlessly. The show would go on to win nine Tony Awards in 1976 including best musical, score, book, direction and choreography. In 1983, "A Chorus Line" would become the longest running show on Broadway, a record that would remain unbroken until 1997 when it closed after 6,137 performances.

The musical score includes such memorable numbers as "One", "I Can Do That", "At The Ballet", "The Music and the Mirror", "I Hope I Get It" and the show's signature song, "What I Did for Love".

This production of "A Chorus Line" features performers from the Downtown Performing Arts Center of Lambertville, N.J. For over 15 years, the Downtown Performing Arts Center has been providing performing arts training to children and young adults through Bucks and Hunterdon counties. In fall of 2017, the group will be moving to its new home, Music Mountain Theatre, a 250-seat performing arts center set to open in Lambertville, N.J.

"A Chorus Line" presented by the Downtown Performing Arts Center and Curtain Up Productions will be performed on Friday, April 27 at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, April 28 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, April 29 at 3 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. at South Hunterdon Regional High School, 301 Mt. Airy-Harbourton Rd., Lambertville, N.J. Ticket prices are $12 for adults and $10 for students and seniors. Tickets can be purchased at the door prior to each performance.

Princeton, NJ - October 5th, 2010 - A collaborative exhibition, "Fragments of the Muse", between an award winning Japanese painter, Ms. Minako Ota, and a Pushcart Prize-nominated Greek poet, Ms. Vasiliki Katsarou, will be on display and open to the public at Swan Creek Gallery (, 34 South Main Street, Lambertville, NJ, from October 16 to December 28, 2010.

The painter and the poet come from widely diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds.  Ms. Ota studied Japanese painting in Tokyo and has exhibited in Moscow, Paris and New York.  Ms. Katsarou studied poetry at Harvard and she is the managing editor of Ragged Sky (  )a cooperative press in NJ, dedicated to contemporary poetry.

            Roxy Ballet Company of Lambertville is kicking off the 2010 holiday season with Tchaikovsky’s beloved holiday classic The Nutcracker with four shows on Thanksgiving weekend, November 27 & 28. The company is scheduled to perform a special Educational Matinee on Monday, November 29. By popular demand, four additional performances have been added December 4 & 5.


             This is a true community production featuring the professional dancers of the Roxey Ballet Company,  as well as more than one hundred children and adults from Hunterdon, Mercer, Somerset and Bucks counties who perform as happy party goers, giant rats, spinning snow flakes, tiny mice, dancing flowers, and Mother Ginger and her flock of polichinelles.


            The lavish production is a fun, lighthearted interpretation of the classic story which opens with Clara sleeping, dreaming of her handsome prince. After young Clara receives a wooden Nutcracker as a Christmas gift from a mysterious and magical party guest, she finds herself in the midst of a battle between the Mouse King, and the Nutcracker and his soldiers. After his victory, the magical spell is broken, and Clara and the Nutcracker go on a voyage to the Land of the Sweets where they are entertained by dancing snowflakes, Spanish, Russian, Chinese and Arabian Dancers and, of course, the Sugar Plum Fairy and her handsome Cavalier.


            Whether it's your first time or part of an annual tradition, The Nutcracker is a perfect holiday treat for your entire family. Witness this show as celebration of the Roxey Ballet’s 16th annual presentation of The Nutcracker.

The 2012 Lambertville New Hope Winter Festival is Pleased to Announce that Fisherman's Mark Be a Beneficiary of the Lambertville*New Hope Winter Festival.



The 2012 Lambertville* New Hope Winter Festival planning committee is pleased to announce that Fisherman's Mark will again be a beneficiary of the Lambertville*New Hope Winter Festival. 

Fisherman's Mark is a social service organization located in Lambertville and its food pantry is helping to service the needs of many of our residents.  In addition to receiving proceeds from the festival, the Winter Festival committee will be placing donation canisters for non-perishable food at each of our major events. 

Fisherman’s Mark has been helping families across six local counties put food on their tables and advocating for those who need support for over 30 years. Now they need our help to provide meals for hungry families in our community. The holiday season puts extra stress on families; as temperatures drop and the days get darker, heating and electricity bills jump higher. In winter months demand at the food pantry climbs to over 1,000 individuals a month. The reality is that the pantry often runs out of food.

 Can’t you help someone less fortunate by making a donation today? We encourage you to make a tax deductible donation directly to Fisherman’s Mark today to ensure that no one is turned away in their hour of need. A donation of $20 will pay for 105 pounds of food from the food bank to stock the food pantry’s shelves.  Any size donation will be greatly appreciated.  Donations can be made on the Winter Festival Fisherman's Mark page.

Thank you for your support!

~The 2012 Lambertville*New Hope Winter Festival Planning Committee

4TH Annual "Points of View" Art Show and Sale In Lambertville Oct 27-29


Ilene Rubin Storm A'Comin'

"4TH Annual Points of View", an Art Show and Sale featuring five local artists, will be presented at the Laceworks at 287 S. Main Street, Lambertville, Friday, October 27th through Sunday, October 29th. The show will begin with an Opening Reception on Friday, October 27th from 7 - 9 pm. The show continues Saturday and Sunday, October 28th and29th from 12 – 5:00 PM. For more information, contact or

Once again, the show will be held at The Laceworks, at the framing studio of Stuart Clark. It is located on the lower rear parking lot side of the building. Parking is free and abundant. Entrances are on the street side or around the back on the lower level. Look for the banners.


Showcasing their work are Ilene Rubin, Jeanne Chesterton, Pat Powell, Rodney Miller, and, Bob Richey. All art is for sale.


Jeanne Chesterton and Ilene Rubin have been creating Art Shows in the Bucks County area for three years, and now four years. Along with a who's who list of local artists, they have found that joining talent with location to exhibit and sell art has been quite the lucrative endeavor. It's a win-win for any serious collector of art or a casual tourist wanting to go home with a little piece of Bucks County in the New Hope/Lambertville area.

A few of the aspects that they like so much about the Point of View Art Show at the Laceworks are that the art of Jeanne Chesterton and  Ilene Rubin along with Pat Powell, Rodney Miller and Bob Richey complement each other while individually, are visually very different. There is something for everyone with little to no overlap of style or range. Also, each in their own right have amassed their own following and niche in an otherwise crowded art field in the Bucks County region. It's a unique blend with a wide price range, so that anyone who is a collector will certainly have a diverse choice, while a casual tourist will easily find a treasure in a treasure box of a gallery.


Ilene Rubin is a national award winning Bucks County artist and author. Concentrating mostly on landscapes and still life paintings in Oils and Pastels, Rubin's paintings explode with color. Her paintings have been accepted into juried art shows in Colorado, Illinois and the communities in and around Bucks County, PA. She also has published two novels, both available on Ilene's art has been shown on the Natural Awakenings Magazine cover as well as at the Phillips Mill 86th Annual Juried Art Show. Ms. Rubin will be showing new paintings created in the last year, including a few selections which, while a departure from her recognizable style, are still true to her urgent desire to capture the vanishing highways and byways. According to Ms. Rubin, "It's a moment in time that I'm compelled to take hold of. It could be a split second along the road or by a field, when I see something that captures the timeless dignity of this place that is so pastoral and serene and simultaneously vibrant and growing- and that might disappear through development all too soon. With still life, there is a simple yet defined energy that reveals how we view the things surrounding us, and that challenges me to give them dimension and charm. These are the moments I want to paint. This is why I paint; because I breathe."


Having established her reputation as a still life painter in the realist tradition, Jeanne Chesterton is excited once again to be exhibiting her paintings in the annual "Points of View" show.  She's pleased to be introducing more than a dozen new pieces which feature her ever popular metals, glassware, florals and fruit.  As to be expected, Chesterton's compositions manifest harmony as she establishes a comfortable relationship among her objects.  Staging the tableau is as important to her as is the layering of color and attention to detail.  Chesterton is an award-winning artist and has exhibited in over 200 shows including Phillips' Mill and the Ellarslie Open.


Patricia MCI. Powell: As a long time resident of Bucks County, she has found a perfect place to inspire and rekindle an old passion for art and painting. Says Pat, "I restarted painting at Bucks County Community College and continue with private and group lessons as well as workshops. I have shown and sold at local shows and have gifted many works to family and friends in whom I have perceived a liking or desire to give them a home. My philosophy regarding my work is to be inspired by what I see, be it nature or a still life composition or portrait, and to create my own interpretation in what I hope is a painterly way. I also hope my paintings make the viewer happy, thoughtful or jog a memory of the near or distant past. I think art should speak to the viewer and take him or her to another place of his or her own. Seeing something "new" in the same painting is always a wondrous discovery.


Rodney Miller is a Digital Abstract Artist and Photographer. He attended Philadelphia Community College and Tyler School of Art, Temple University majoring in photography. "I have over 35 years of experience as an artist/photographer. As a fine art photographer, I love to create images that stir the unconscious and riles emotions. Blending both digital and traditional photography, photographing city scapes, landscapes and those things right around us that often goes noticed and make them my own world in my work. My real interest is in abstract photography. It is exciting to turning ordinary and creating photographs that I refer to 'In the Minds' Eye. I have exhibited throughout PA, NJ and Ohio. I have won awards at several juried shows."



Bob Richey on Bob Richey: "I draw rural and urban themed landscapes with soft pastels.  I usually work in a small format and complete my pieces in a single session. This allows me to explore many subjects in which I try to put a strong emphasis on composition.  I often seek out the more forgotten corners of the landscape both in the city and the countryside to feature in my pastels." Bob shows and sells his art extensively throughout the region, and has been accepted to numerous shows in the area. He also is an active participant in several area art festivals.

Valid from 09/29/2017 to 11/01/2017

Lambertville Public School and Lambertville Goes Wild Partner to Create Wildlife Garden


On October 2, over 100 Lambertville Public School (LPS) students from pre-school through sixth grade planted 103 native plants to create a garden for wildlife.  This effort was spearheaded by First Grade Teacher and Wildlife Garden Coordinator Chelsea Gardiner, with strong support from Principal Wanda Quinones.  Many other teachers participated in planning for the garden, and for the inclusion of the garden in the school's curriculum. The garden is now a Certified Schoolyard Habitat with the National Wildlife Federation's Garden for Wildlife program ( ).


School personnel partnered with Mary Anne Borge and Lauren Kovacs of Lambertville Goes Wild, a volunteer group promoting wider use of native plants as a key part of its aim to certify the City of Lambertville, New Jersey, as a Community Wildlife Habitat recognized by the National Wildlife Federation.  The LPS Wildlife Garden is an important milestone in achieving Lambertville's certification.  To learn more about Lambertville Goes Wild, visit their website: .


A wildlife garden provides the food, shelter and water that our local birds, butterflies, bees and other wildlife need to survive.  Animals have much more restricted diets than people do.  One well-known example is the Monarch butterfly.  While the butterflies can drink nectar from many different flowers, their caterpillars can only survive if they eat the leaves of milkweed plants. If we didn't have milkweed, we wouldn't have Monarch butterflies. What is less well known is that most butterfly and moth caterpillars, and even many bees and other insects, have very specialized plant-based diets.  They depend on the availability of the plants with which they evolved for their continued existence. In return, many insects and some birds (especially hummingbirds) help to pollinate the flowers at which they feed, helping the plant species to continue to thrive.  


All of the plants in the LPS Wildlife Garden are native to this area, so they are adapted to do well in our local soil and climate without the need for fertilizers.  They were selected to provide maximum value for wildlife and interest for students.  There will be something in bloom from mid-April through early December, starting with Spicebush and ending with Witch-hazel, ensuring that there will a continuous source of food for pollinators.  The garden has Beebalm and Cardinal Flower, both favorites of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds.  There are at least six species that provide food for butterfly caterpillars.  In addition to Butterflyweed (a type of milkweed) for Monarchs, Spicebush, Plantain-leaved Pussytoes, Golden Alexander, Blue False Indigo, and Blue Wood Aster all have the potential to attract butterfly species to lay their eggs.  Other plants that are pollinator magnets are Short-toothed Mountain Mint, Dense Blazing Star, Showy Goldenrod, and Wild Geranium.  Shooting Star requires 'buzz' pollination, a specialty service provided by Bumble Bees.  If the bees, butterflies, flies and other pollinators are successful, there will be fruits and seeds produced by Spicebush, Low-bush Blueberry, Showy Coneflower and Beebalm that birds will be happy to eat.  Birds will also benefit greatly from the caterpillars, which are an important part of most birds' diets.  



Bowman's Hill Wildflower Preserve ( ) generously donated the plants for the garden through their pocket habitat program.  Betsy and Joe Falconi donated compost.  Teachers, Lambertville Goes Wild team members and friends, and parents all helped prepare the bed for planting.  The LPS community and Lambertville Goes Wild are grateful for the generosity of all who made the garden possible.

Valid from 10/16/2018 to 11/30/2018
