Gentlemen, you’ve waited patiently for your turn. Last month, we brought you our Women’s issue—it is ladies first, after all—and this month, we present our “Gents” issue, celebrating all things for and about men.

Of course, there’s Father’s Day on June 16, when families get together and celebrate fathers, grandfathers and great-grandfathers. In this Men’s issue, you’ll learn about the Unbridled Heroes Project based in Allendale which helps military veterans rediscover their hero within by pairing them with rescued mustangs. The result is unexpected, unscripted and unbridled.

And then, there are those men who can teach us some wonderful life lessons. We had the opportunity to interview two gentlemen: Ernest Lamour, president and CEO of the Ridgewood YMCA; and Dr. David Montgomery, a cardiologist with Cardiac Associates of North Jersey in Oakland. Both men speak about their fathers as important role models; so, flip the pages ahead and you’ll learn a bit more.

For those who love the game of golf and might be suffering from pain due to overuse, tightness, stiffness or even old injuries, learn what Dr. John Gould has to say and consider an assessment. Check out his unique practice at the Core Golf Performance Center in Oakland.

If comic books bring back some great childhood memories, then take a peek at some super cover photos of Spider-Man and others. A great find in Ramsey is Matt Whiteley’s Gotham Underground Comics & Collectibles!

For those men who love their steak and stout, the Ho-Ho-Kus Inn offers an extensive selection of draught and bottled beers. Pair your favorite(s) with a prime New York strip or a Stilton burger. Check out their calendar of events at for their next craft beer tasting night.

If you really love Dad, why not surprise him with a brand-new McLaren Spider 720S? Check out the photos and read a quick summary. Then head up Route 17 to McLaren North Jersey in Ramsey for a ride of a lifetime.

And last but not least, who doesn’t know Northwest Bergen County’s Domenic Parisi? If you don’t, just ask one of your local friends or neighbors and most likely they’ll say something like, “Sure, I know Domenic! He has been cutting my hair for the last 50 years! What a gem of a man!” There are no words that can begin to describe this kind-hearted, generous, patient and fatherly gentleman.

So, to all those fathers out there, thank you for being the special person you are, thank you for what you do for your community and of course, thank you for what you do for your family. For those of you getting Dad a special gift, as always, “keep it local!”

Happy Father’s Day!
