TGI Fridays in Marlboro was among those targeted by year-long investigation.
More than 1,000 bottles of booze were seized from 29 New Jersey bars, including at TGI Fridays in Marlboro Township, by more than 100 state agents Wednesday at the conclusion of a year-long investigation called “Operation Swill,’’ authorities said Thursday. The investigation alleges that the bars and restaurants — a dozen TGI Friday's among them — filled premium alcoholic beverage bottles with cheaper alcohol in an attempt to fool customers and increase profits, authorities have said. Customers paid for the premium brand, but were instead poured a non-premium substitute, the release says. Acting on tips and consumer complaints, samples were taken in January and February when ABC investigators visited 63 licensed establishments across the …

A tight left turn could lead to close calls for driver's waiting at the Route 79 light.
While Patch readers said they haven't noticed any more of a traffic buildup than usual on Route 79, Patch Editors noticed what could be a minor problem in the pattern. The left turn from Lloyd Road to Route 79 South has some motorists coming close to oncoming traffic sitting stationary waiting to turn left into the CVS parking lot. The drug store on Route 79 at Lloyd Road in Morganville is just the first building on a newly cleared property, which will soon house a QuickChek fuel station and convenience store and a multi-tenant commercial building in the rear of the property.

Max Fitness, with a new location coming to Marlboro in June, has helped clients undergo dramatic weight loss without the use of gimmicks or crash dieting.
After a difficult pregnancy left his wife and newborn son in the hospital for over a year, martial arts instructor Bryan Klein soon saw his own health deteriorate. Driving from his home in Manalapan to a hospital in New York City each day began to wreak havoc on his diet and overall fitness level several years ago. "After the whole ordeal was over and we had returned to normal life, I had gained over 100 pounds," Klein said. "It became difficult to fulfill my job duties. I put up with being overweight for five years. One day I said enough of this, so I hired a personal trainer and nutritionist because I was out of control and just wasn't doing it on my own.
