Through a number of successful fundraising events and generous donations, the theatre is still open, putting on great shows and fighting strong! Read the rest of this entry »

I don’t know about you, but I can think back to one moment that caused me to become a foodie. When living in Italy, I was exposed to a model of cooking and eating that I had never looked for in the US Read the rest of this entry »

Much like a trendy night club in A Night at the Roxbury, getting into a popular breakfast joint often requires waiting on a huge line, having your name on “the list” and staying calm enough to not get your butt thrown out before you even get in. It can be daunting, and attempting anything daunting before noon is very dangerous. Read the rest of this entry »

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day (or at least that is what my doctor says). As foodies, we take our breakfast very seriously. On Long Beach Island, The Sandbox Cafe has quickly become the gold standard for the morning meal. Read the rest of this entry »

Many live by the mantra of “work hard and play hard” and I can’t help but agree. This weekend when you are kicking off your summers here in the LBI region, hopefully most of you will be enjoying the latter.

Of course, not everyone can play hard this weekend. The reason most of us can enjoy LBI during times like this is because of the local businesses down here. They are working their tails off, some around the clock, to make sure we have a great time.

Yet even during these busiest of times, these people still find a way to give back to the community. It makes me proud to know that a tough economy doesn’t stop people from wanting to help each other. I would like to highlight some examples for you here. Some are even holding events this weekend. If you are around, stop by an event or two and support a good cause! Read the rest of this entry »

There are few things in life better than no traffic lights on LBI. Being able to drive from Ship Bottom to either end of the island in under 15 minutes would be either A) a world record or B) highly illegal in the summer months, but during the island’s preseason (mid March – mid May) the island is both alive with businesses opening and easily navigable.

Another reason to head to LBI before the Memorial Day Madness? The weather. Read the rest of this entry »
