Celebrity sightings of the Jonas Brothers were the buzz among shoppers at The Mall at Short Hills on Sunday. The teen pop stars had tweeted they’d be there, and sure enough, Joe and Nick, were true to their tweet in Bloomingdale’s.

Photos of fans with the stars were soon up on social media sites like Oceanup.com, a teen site for celebrity news: “… when someone told us that the Jonas Brothers were in Bloomingdale's, we sprinted there as fast as we could and then we saw Big Rob. He told us that Nick and Joe were in the changing room. We went over there and we asked for a picture. They were so nice and flawless." Indeed, …

The restaurant is opening at the Mall at Short Hills.
The Cheesecake Factory’s much anticipated opening is Monday, but 1,300 people enjoyed a preview this week, as The Cheesecake Factory employees practiced their jobs in two days of training with guests, to try to work out the biggest kinks before paying customers arrive.
