Walking distance definitely not needed. Plan on staying Moitze Shabbos and Sunday night. Prefer not a sketchy place/neighborhood, and it also doesn't have to be a 5 star place.
try maybe the allegria in long beach or maybe try the twa hotel if you wanna check it out

Any landscapers that wonít break the bank? The good ones have minimums of 5k and the random Joseís off the street have a big language barrier.
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

I know that asking anonymous people for their opinions doesn't get me far, but are there any dairy/parve places that are known to have higher kashrus standards? And/or strictly cholov/pas/bishul yisroel? Full time mashgiach, etc?

Go back a few pages on this thread (to the 180 area, I think), pop some corn, buckle in, and enjoy the ride.

Just be very careful with the greens. That is probably the most severe issue by a dairy restaurant. Not all places have very good checkers.

Recent example attached: (Disclaimer: These pictures were taken by a customer who bought this at the Lakewood location. However, the product was sent there from our local store. The Lakewood Vaad will not allow them to bring in checked greens from our store anymore)

Yes, for ~$20 HD sells rolls of screen that include spline and the tool to push the spline into the groove.

I imagine any handyman can do it for you if you donít want to DIY, but itís not too hard. Just make sure to put the screen in straight so itís not wavy.

PSA: There had been very heavy infestation in certain greens like parsley and dill lately.

Most stores in the NY, NJ area who usually sell pre-checked vegetables did not have parsley or dill. GG somehow managed to get the parsley clean, but did not have dill. (They sold it in their soup-mix, but sealed in a special bag.)

Seasons, on the other hand, was the only store that had dill! It's not because their bodek is better than everyone else either.

Do not eat anything from Seasons pre-checked section. DO call the Vaad and ask for an explanation!!
