Giveaway Gift and Value: $75 gift card
The Little Daisy Bake Shop is a nut-free bake shop in Montclair. Everything is made fresh and in-house with changing flavors to match the season.

The Green Room Montclair | 20 Church Street
IG Handle: @thegreenroomnj
Giveaway Gift and Value: 850mg CBD relief cream ($80 value)
The Green Room originally opened to provide a physical space where customers could find compliant, lab-tested, and trusted CBD products. After the Hoboken location was so successful, the company opened another location at 20 Church Street in Montclair and a third in Red Bank last summer. Now locals in Hudson and Essex counties can take advantage of the calming atmosphere at The Green Room.
Ani Ramen House | 511 Bloomfield Avenue
IG Handle: @aniramen
Giveaway Gift and Value: Dinner for 4 (value up to $100)
The menu at Ani Ramen House features six yummy combinations of noodles, broths, and select ingredients to bring a taste of Tokyo to New Jersey. In this modern, casual space that features this classic Asian dish, guests are welcomed like family. We like that Ani Ramen House serves more than just ramen with bao buns, don buri bowls, Kurobuta sausage, and more on the menu. There are vegan and vegetarian options as well, including vegan ramen, making it a great spot for groups with mixed dietary needs. This location is a BYO – we’ve learned that the Yuzu Lemonade is a great mixer with any clear liquor and creates a refreshing contrast to the savory soup. The giveaway winner will receive dinner for four, giving you the chance to share a taste of Tokyo with three lucky friends.
The Bar Method Montclair | 493 Bloomfield Avenue, 2nd Fl.
IG Handle: @barmethodmontclair
Giveaway Gift and Value: Bar with Your Bestie: Two 2-Week Unlimited Packages and Bar Method swag ($175 value)
The Bar Method Montclair is a boutique fitness studio that uses ballet-inspired movements, the barre, and the student’s own body weight to create a smooth but intense workout. Even students without a dance background can jump in easily to a class at The Bar Method where the workouts result in long, lean, sculpted muscles. The instructors are highly trained to make sure participants are safe but enjoy a class at the same time. Instructors are able to accommodate injuries and pregnancy and will work with students to modify as needed. The lofted studio space is open and airy, and there is plenty of storage for students’ gear in the full locker room, complete with towel service. After class, students can enjoy the lounge, the coffee bar, and the beauty bar all on-site. The Montclair location has been in business for 10 years, and what makes it so special is its commitment to the community. It seems like there is always a community-focused event going on at the studio: from a canned food drive to a candy collection for overseas troops, we like that it’s about more than the workout here.
Sweet Kitchen | 533 Bloomfield Avenue
IG Handle: @sweetkitchennj
Giveaway Gift and Value: $150 gift card
