I was excited about last summer because the weather was warm and we were finally able to get outside and do more things after being all cooped up during the beginning of the pandemic. I have to say though, being fully vaccinated, I am SO looking forward to this summer. My husband and I are going on vacation with friends and even planning a Mommy and Daddy weekend getaway. I cannot wait. I see a light at the end of the tunnel and I see things getting better. It's great. Festivals, being outside and summer fun...I am so ready for it.

Restaurants Hiring in Mercer County

Unemployment rates have gone down for the first time since the pandemic, but there are still a lot of people looking for jobs. As more and more people get vaccinated and state restrictions are being lifted, people are going out more, especially to restaurants. My family and I did some outdoor dining a few weeks ago on a nice night and the restaurant was slammed. I feel like they were not prepared for the rush that came in. I see signs on so many windows that say "Help Wanted" or "Now Hiring" and I wanted to highlight a few of those restaurants if you or anyone you know if looking for a job.
