WHITE CASTLE 'SLYDERS' SERVED AT INAUGURAL FESTIVAL

 COLUMBUS, Ohio, Jan. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- White Castle hamburgers will be served as part of the inaugural events for New Jersey Governor-elect Christy Whitman's induction into office. The festivities will take place at the Atlantic City Convention Center's West (Stetson) Hall on Saturday, Jan. 15, from 1-6 p.m.
 The "state fair" festival, planned by the Republican Inaugural Committee, will feature state-wide representation from New Jersey Restaurant Association (NJRA) members who will provide the only food available at the event.
 White Castle, America's first fast food hamburger chain, is famous for its unique square hamburger patties with five holes that allow for even cooking -- "steam grilled on a bed of onions."
 White Castle has been a member of the NJRA since December 1964. The first White Castle restaurant in New Jersey was opened on July 25, 1930, at 307 Elizabeth Ave. in Newark. The restaurant has occupied the same site for 64 years. The 20th New Jersey White Castle was opened Sept. 9, 1993, at 261 Broad Ave. in Fairview.
 "We'll have plenty of fresh White Castle hamburgers and cheeseburgers for the festival," said Jesse Webb, New Jersey White Castle area manager. "It is a distinctive pleasure to be a part of this important event."
 White Castle makes their own 100% U.S. beef patties and bakes their own signature buns that steam right along with the patties as they cook. One of the three White Castle bakeries is located in Carteret, N.J. The restaurants also offer chicken and fish sandwiches, along with traditional side items like fries and shakes.
 According to the NJRA, "the festival as planned will encompass the four seasons of New Jersey, highlighting the diversity of the state in its activities available, culture, and heritage." An estimated 6,000 people will attend the inaugural gala, which features a concert that evening.
 White Castle System, Inc. opened its first restaurant in Wichita, Kan., in 1921, and currently operates 282 restaurants in 12 states from headquarters in Columbus, Ohio.
