Isn't this a nice mural of The National Hotel? It's in the Rat! And, it's still in very good condition.
Frenchtown's weekend-long RiverFest kicks off today. It looks like it's going to be a great day for the town. All the businesses are gearing up for the "people" traffic that will arrive today and they have musicians and puppet shows setting up to entertain the visitors.
The National Hotel proudly displays the banner for the weekend celebrations, off the 2nd floor porch. We're happy to have been able to contribute in this small way to the weekend's festivities, giving it more visibility as people enter Frenchtown from Route 12.
And talking about visibility, we were also pleasantly surprised to read a terrific story on our venture, that took up a tremendous amount of "real estate"/space in the Star Ledger this week. Veronica Slaght had interviewed us and had come with David Gard, a photographer for the Star Ledger, but we never imagined the number of photos and the depth of the article that was published. We are truly grateful. Here is the link:
