If you're looking for a reason to open a cold one, other that you worked hard, didn't do anything at all, or it's just a nice day outside, how about it's "National Beer Day." If Homer Simpson had his way, it would be a city holiday. Maybe they could make it that way In Philadelphia to replace the canceled Columbus Day.

It sure would be nice if Governor Murphy lifted his restrictions on bars and left the good people off New Jersey belly up to one and celebrate this historic occasion

There are so many great beers and breweries that New Jersey has to offer. When I was growing up in Union City, my father after a hard day of either fighting fires for the Union City Fire Department or his other job as a sheet metal polisher would come home to a refrigerator full of Miller High Life or Rolling Rock. These were the two brands I used to sneak and drink while he was at work.

If you could ask Governor Murphy one question...

Remember when New Jersey had a governor who would come on this radio station and answer your questions? So does Steve Trevelise. Of course, Murphy holds his daily press conferences updating us on what he's doing and taking questions from reporters, some of which he may not like or deem as political. But when it comes to facing the fire that are the questions that are from the people of New Jersey, Steve figured he'd give you a chance to ask him the question you always wanted to ask. Here are some of the questions his social media following would want to ask.

The best cheesesteaks in New Jersey
