Hello LBI Foodie Nation!

I hope you all had great Memorial Day Weekends! LBI was alive with summer (enormous spotlights that could be seen by the International Space Station courtesy of The Sea Shell included). People were out, the weather was beautiful and good eats were being consumed all around.

Sure the water LOOKS warm...

The ocean even warmed up from “bone chilling” to “bone numbing”, allowing hundreds of macho men to sprint into the water and try not to act cold (hours of entertainment). The island has two big events coming up soon that you all should take a look at, the LBI Film Festival and LBIfest. More information is listed below. Also, our first rankings have come out and are listed below! These rankings are purely based on your ratings of LBI’s restaurants. Take some time to vote for your favorite restaurants here. Enjoy the weather and eat happy!
