George Washington’s soldiers endured a Hard Winter at Jockey Hollow.  Can Chris Cannon’s Jockey Hollow survive a COVID winter?

A second surge of the coronavirus, state restrictions on indoor service, and frosty temperatures for outdoor dining added up to a losing hand.

Will Cannon reopen this Morristown gem?  How will he coax COVID-shy patrons back inside the historic mansion that he rescued from oblivion in 2014?  What does he think of Gov. Phil Murphy and his emergency orders?

Hear it straight from the source, on the latest episode of The Morristown Green Podcast.
