Chanticler, Millburn-bulldozed!

i noticed that this high-end catering hall was razed and bulldozed! i was married a few blocks away at the Short Hills Caterers, which is also closed. what is going on ?

    1. It seems that a traditional, glitzy wedding will soon be a thing of the past. I've read that fewer people get married and those who do get married at an older age. I always thought that traditional weddings were a colossal waste of money and the young couple could better deploy the money spent on the wedding for a down payment on a house. Wait...that housing thing isn't working out too well, either.

        drove by yesterday for the first time in a long time. looks like they are leveling it out to put some new buildings in. end of an era. i didn't notice short hills caterers was gone. i was there for an engagement party that was better than the wedding.

          The Short Hill Caterers building is still standing, but it has been closed for years. i guess traditional weddings and bar mitzvahs are less prevalent.

      2. My high school senior prom was at the Chanticler many years ago. No, I'm not going to tell how many years ago :)
