A Jersey Girl landed the first duet on The Voice Season 12! Felicia Temple of Bergen County moved Alicia Keys to join her on-stage, before Felicia picked Team Alicia.

Jon Stewart popped up again on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, joking he'd tunneled there from his Monmouth County farm. He admits he's a bit restless lately (though he did sign with HBO). Stewart had relationship advice for the press, in the video below:

One of New Jersey's minor league ballparks is hoping the cast and crew of La La Land might enjoy a ball game to take their minds off that Oscars flub. The Lakewood Blueclaws also invited Oscar winner and Mercer County native Damien Chazelle to throw out the first pitch.

It's Fat Tuesday, Jersey! (That's a photo of my drink of choice.) The finale of Mardi Gras is a chance to celebrate with King cakes and NJ's own La Bonbonniere Bake Shoppe will be hopping all day. The family owned & operated bakery now has four spots in central Jersey.

Plus, there's Old Bay restaurant, a slice of New Orleans in New Brunswick. Hat City Kitchen in Orange, Ollie's Gator Pub in Berlin and Ragin' Cajun in Belmar are letting the good times roll, too.

Proud Jersey Girl Erin Vogt’s first reporting gig involved her Fisher Price tape recorder. As a wife and momma of two kiddies, she firmly believes that life’s too short to drink bad coffee.  A fan of the beach, Dave Grohl and karma, in no particular order.
