Located at 339 Grove Street (next door to Orale Mexican Kitchen), the shop specializes in vintage and contemporary women’s fashion and jewelry with price points comfortably under $100. The store had a soft opening this past weekend and will celebrate a grand opening in the coming weeks. —Instagram, Mint Market

**Gothamist takes a look inside the new Bell + Gray restaurant, formerly Carrino Provisions. While the bar area does include sports and HDTVs, Gothamist reports the space has an “airier aesthetic than most sports bars.” (The lobster roll dinner with a side of lobster soup does sound delicious!) —Gothamist

**Chilltown Kitchen’s next pop-up dinner is kicking things up a notch. In addition to featuring an extended cocktail hour (with hors d’oeuvres), the 4-course dinner will now include craft cocktail pairings (prepared by a mystery South House mixologist) with each entree. In previous dinners, drinks were not included. Tickets go on sale October 19th at $80 per person and dinner is set for October 30th. The mystery residence/location has yet to be disclosed.  –Chilltown Kitchen via Instagram

**City officials have launched the Jersey City Open Data Portal, a website designed to provide residents with easier access to public data. The website was created last year to provide access to a spectrum of city data and increase government transparency. It’s recently been redesigned with a more user-friendly interface. —NJ.com

**Tickets have gone on sale for the Barrow Mansion Halloween Party, which will be held on Saturday, October 31st from 7.30pm till 11pm. The adults-only party costs $25 per person (one drink is included). —Barrow Mansion Party
