In accordance with statewide regulations The Blue Monkey Tavern will be closing our doors until further notice. As we continue to make business decisions we will be sure to keep our loyal patrons in the loop so please check back regularly for updates. In the meantime, on this St. Patrick’s day when you’d normally be in your beloved neighborhood bars, may you raise your glass in honor and support of the many business owners and their employees who are now unable to open their doors for regular business or make their normal wages. And from our team to your homes, Happy St Patrick’s Day. We toast to your continued good health and happinesses!
You might need a spoon for Equilibrium’s MC2 now pouring at The Blue Monkey Tavern. Succulent juices and chewy hop resins make this an imperial IPA to drool for with its hazy tangerine color, releasing bright tropical notes of mango, pineapple, and apricot. This DIPA (Double IPA) has double the amount of hops, and more malt to counteract and is Equilibrium Brewery's tribute to the amazing relationship that energy and mass are balanced, proportional to the speed of a photon squared. Equilibrium Brewery, Middletown, NY combines research and inspiration to balance drinkability with massive flavor.
When Charles Brooks Oakford started a candy company in Merchantville, he didn’t want to use his family name. If the business failed, he reasoned, few people would connect it with the Oakfords. So he named it after his aunt, Charlotte. Aunt Charlotte's Candies started in 1920, making caramels in the basement of a Merchantville home then selling them from a Model T Ford that drove around town. The shop is now a fourth generation, family-owned, scratch making that original vanilla caramel plus a whole lot more. Promising "A Delight in Every Bite", the Oakford family is celebrating their 100th birthday this year, a very sweet milestone in Merchantville.
The restoration phase of the Merchantville Diner - now known as the “Merchant House” is approaching completion. According to owner Patti Sharp, former owner of Station House Restaurant in Haddon Heights, it will be a full service restaurant offering home cooked comfort meals to the community at a reasonable price. They will be open for breakfast and lunch daily and hope to expand their hours to include dinner. To start, they will offer “Take and Bake”, their homemade ready to serve dinners available for take out. Their soups and chicken pot pie are traditional favorites! Patti looks forward to the community sharing their insights and menu ideas. Stay tuned for updates as they become available. The Heights' loss is surely Merchantville's gain and we can't wait!

January is the first anniversary of our business and time to turn over a new leaf, try something new and aspire to something greater . . . so, we're moving. We’re excited to announce that Soulflower Yoga has found a new home at 20 South Centre Street. Come February 13th we’ll be located in the heart of downtown Merchantville - right next to the The Juice Bar. This means a bigger space for more yoga, more zen, and lots more fun. Stop by, check out our home and help warm our new space. It’s been such an amazing journey watching Soulflower Yoga grow.
