WEST ORANGE, N.J. – Though much of Vizcaya’s appeal lies in the incredible amenities and services residents can enjoy just a few hundred feet from their front doors, there is also a great deal to do just outside of the community’s gates. Festivals, art exhibits, theatrical performances, wine tastings, golf outings, sporting events and scholarly lectures are just a few of the many recreational and cultural opportunities available in the West Orange area. Now it will be even easier for Vizcaya residents to take advantage of those events, thanks to a new events calendar being published by the community’s concierge service.

Published by Chapman Concierge, the first issue of the new events calendar will cover events held in October and will be distributed to residents in the last week of September. It will include several child-friendly activity suggestions for those residents who are looking for things to do with their children or grandchildren. The monthly events calendar will complement the more extensive quarterly newsletter Chapman Concierge already produces for Vizcaya residents.

“With so many opportunities to enjoy activities and cultural events in the area, we thought it would be helpful to our residents if we listed them all in one place,” said Lisa Macchi, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Millennium Homes, the Developer of Vizcaya. “We consider this new calendar an extension of the already exceptional level of service we offer at Vizcaya. It keeps residents informed and it fosters a sense of community that truly makes this community a pleasant place to live.”

The monthly events calendar is, indeed, an extension of the concierge service all residents at Vizcaya enjoy. Lead Concierge Frank Gramo and his staff stay informed about all local events. Residents can contact the concierge for more information on a specific event or to arrange to obtain tickets.

“The Vizcaya community is growing and we want residents to know that there are many wonderful things to do right in the area,” said Lauren Marks, Director of Services at Chapman Concierge. “Spending time in New York City is always an option since it is so close, but residents certainly don’t have to go into the city to enjoy a wonderful event or venue. They can do that locally. The monthly events calendar is a way for us to encourage residents to be part of the local community and enjoy everything that Vizcaya and the surrounding area has to offer for them and their families.”

Vizcaya residents can enjoy musical theatre at the nearby Paper Mill Playhouse, upscale shopping at the Short Hills Mall and child-friendly entertainment at the Turtle Back Zoo. Several fine dining options, such as The Manor, are within a 10-minute drive of the community. The newsletter keeps residents informed about all of those establishments as well as seasonal events such as the West Orange Farmers Market and the Montclair Film Festival.
