Here's what you need to know for Tuesday.

  • Share some special time with your little one at the Louise Childs branch of the Sussex County Public Library System Tuesday for November Holidays Story Time. Put on your PJs (or not) to enjoy a fun-filled story time about this month's holidays that's specially geared to children from preschool through third grade—but the whole family is invited. The 6:30 p.m. event is free, but space is limited, so be sure to register. The library is at 21 Sparta Road in Stanhope. 
  • The Hopatcong Seniors present Senior Soup Night Tuesday. The event is like a pot luck featuring meals in actual pots—seniors are invited to bring in pots of their favorite soup to share. The social happening starts at 5 p.m. at the Hopatcong Senior Center, 32 Lakeside Blvd. For info, call Loretta Rankin at 973-398-2897.
  • It's never too early in the week to get your jam on, and every Tuesday, you can rock out on the Roadhouse Stage at the Stanhope House. The venue presents All-Star Jam featuring blues king Johnny Charles. The night also offers a chance for the best and brightest performers in the region to show their stuff. Grab your guitar and bring your A-Game—note that the Stanhope warns that this event "this ain't for no beginners!"  There's no cover charge for this all-ages show, which starts at 6 p.m. The Stanhope House is at 45 Main St. in Stanhope.
  • As we get closer to winter, the problem of finding affordable food becomes more acute for middle- and low-income families. Hopatcong's Byram Bay Christian Church seeks to help with its Food Box Community Outreach program. The effort allows budget-conscious families to join a group-buying program that offers quality frozen food at discount prices. For more information, contact the church at 973-398-1715.
