update: By 6:30 p.m. 780 people who had pre-registered for Girls' Night Out in Millburn, were already downtown shopping and more were on their way to the check-in table.

That’s a lot of people for a town that, except for its bars and restaurants, generally rolls up the sidewalks after business hours. “It was so successful that when we were trying to decide what to do this spring, our members wanted to do this again,” said Downtown Millburn …
