In the News: Chilltown Kitchen Tix on Presale, $90m Port Authority Renovations Begin in Sept


**Tickets for Chilltown Kitchen’s next pop-up dinner will go on pre-sale today at $60 per seat. This is the second dinner organized and prepared by Chilltown Kitchen, which is trying to create a monthly supper club for residents of Jersey City. The dinner will be held on August 24th at Park & Sixth Restaurant on Grove Street. The menu (which will be released later today) will be inspired by the flavors of Latin America. There are only 33 tickets available, so better act fast. –The Chilltown Kitchen via Facebook [UPDATE: You can check out the full menu and buy tickets here].

**Back in July, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey approved a $90 million short-term facelift for its decaying Port Authority Bus Terminal in New York. As part of the renovations, the bus terminal will get new restrooms, new ceilings, and buses that actually run on time. (Or try to at least). Now the bad news. If you currently rely on NJ Transit buses, chances are high your gate will be completely changed starting September 9. —My9NJ

**Dan Richer, co-owner and the chef extraordinaire behind Razza, is now selling his celebrated in-house butter exclusively at the newest Whole Foods Market in Clark, NJ. The butter will be available in 5.5-oz. glass jars for $6.99. If you have no way of getting to Clark, you can always try it (along with any of the amazing pizzas) at Razza. —Whole Foods

**Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop has named a new spokesman to his staff. Effective today, Ryan Jacobs will replace long-time spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill, who will remain on staff as an aid to Jacobs. Jacobs, 27, will earn $110,000 annually, which is roughly $10k more than Morrill’s annual salary. —
