Spectacular new listing in Apple Ridge, Wall Township!

Labor Day (600 x 405)Aaahh…Labor Day Weekend at the Jersey Shore. So many claim it to be the last weekend of summer, and recognize it with an air of melancholy. But, that’s simply not the case. Personally, I acknowledge Halloween as the end of summer at the Jersey Shore…even if that’s not the “official” end. In fact, those few weeks that follow Labor Day are potentially the best times. It gets a bit less crowded, the weather is not too hot and not too cool (still great beach weather), the kids go back to school so routines return, and there’s a freshness in the air that is invigorating. So, don’t be sad about summer coming to an end. If you live at the Jersey Shore, you still have plenty of “summer” to look forward to.

If you are down the shore this weekend, here is a sampling of some events you don’t want to miss:

  • Garden State Wine Festival: Saturday (8/30) and Sunday (8/31) from noon -5pm, Garden State Wine Growers will be hosting the Wine Festival at Allaire Village in Wall Township.
  • Spring Lake Art Walk: The Spring Lake Chamber of Commerce hosts their Labor Day celebration Art Walk down Third Avenue on Saturday, 8/30.
  • Monmouth Park BBQ & Craft Beer Festival: Celebrate everything barbecue at Monmouth Park Racetrack on Saturday (8/30) and Sunday (8/31). Enjoy ribs, pulled pork, and brisket served up by some of NJ’s best barbecue joints. Then cool off in their beer garden.
  • Manasquan Labor Day Celebration: A concert by “Moonlighting” will begin at the Main Beach at 7:30pm on Saturday, 8/30. It will be followed by a gala fireworks display.

But, whatever you do, don’t think of this weekend as the end of Jersey Shore fun for the year. There’s plenty to do and much to look forward to in the weeks to come. The following weeks bring the Feast of San Gennaro in Belmar, Red Bank’s Street Fair, the Tough Sander on the beach at Pier Village, Long Branch’s 39th annual Clearwater Festival, Make A Wish Foundation’s annual Beach Ball at Bar Anticipation, and so much more. So, come to the Jersey Shore ~ where the fun never ends!

2014 Tough Sander Course MapTough Sander? Think of it as an easier form of a “tough mudder” held entirely on the beach…and a whole lot of fun! Although similar to a “tough mudder”-type race with various obstacles, it is strictly an athletic event held on the beach, testing your strength and endurance. The obstacles include running, jumping, lifting, crawling and climbing on the beach, and an optional component of swimming in the ocean. A new feature this year is the “Fun Run” after the main race for ages 7 and up.

The race will take place on the beach in Pier Village, Long Branch on Saturday, September 6th, and is open to both individuals and teams. Thanks to the Beach Replenishment Project, this year’s course will be expanded and improved.

The Tough Sander is a charitable event in support of the 15-40 Connection, which funds work that empowers people to recognize potential cancer symptoms and advocates for their care, so that they may benefit from the life-saving advantages of earlier cancer detection. The 15-40 Connection is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising the awareness and educating individuals to check themselves for cancer and take assertive action in response to persistent health changes. The survival rates of people who get cancer between the ages of 15-40 has shown little improvement in the past 40 years. Delayed diagnosis is an important culprit of this problem.

Last year’s Tough Sander raised $15,000 for 15-40 Connection. This year’s goal is $25,000. So, come support the 2014 Tough Sander. Your participation and fundraising will help to change the shocking statistics.

A short stroll down the promenade from Pier Village to this premier location!

 

 

 

 

 

Jersey Shore BBQLast week we decided to have a family night out. Living at the Jersey Shore there are many options, because it’s as if you are on vacation all the time. We went through all the options…the beach, movies, river, etc. We decided on mini golf and dinner. Perfect!

We hopped into the car and went over to our favorite miniature golf course, at 9th Ave Pier. What a great course! All the holes are in perfect condition. They have many holes that will challenge the best golfers, including water holes. And, the Shark River as the backdrop makes it a perfect location.

After a great round of miniature golf filled with lots of laughs, the next decision was where to eat. Did we want burgers, fish, pasta? We ultimately decided on Jersey Shore BBQ on 10th Avenue in Belmar, and I am so happy we did! I had heard good things about it, but had never been there before.

When we arrived, we were seated right away and were entertained by live music. They had a small band in the corner playing all types of music. Sometimes, when you are in a restaurant and there is live music, it interrupts your meal, but not in this instance. This band was great. They were not too loud and they played a great selection of music.

Now, onto the meal. The waiter came over and explained the menu as it was our first time there. They had many apps to choose from, everything from wings, ribs, shrimp and salads. After seeing how big the dinner plates were we decided to pass on the apps and go right to the main course. There was something on the menu for every taste. We decided on the baby back ribs. We had a choice of St. Louis style (ribs seasoned with a dry rub) or traditional BBQ. We chose the BBQ. Each meal came with 2 sides. We went with fries, cucumber salad, sweet potato fries and Mac and cheese. Out came our meals and the table was filled with food. Huge racks of meaty delicious ribs, corn bread, fries, and all the rest. We had a choice of 5 different sauces to choose from. I went with their traditional BBQ and I was happy I did. It was tangy and full of flavor. The entire meal was fantastic! We ordered 2 of their Rib Feasts and that was enough to feed the 4 of us with food to spare. Those baby back ribs were huge and full of meat and when you ate the, the meat just fell off the bone.

If you love ribs, chicken, pork, or anything else BBQ, Jersey Shore BBQ is the place to go!
