** Update 9/23/2011 this event has been rescheduled for Sunday, October 2, 2011 due to weather concerns** Let us all collectively cross our fingers for great weather this weekend. Not that I don’t do that every weekend but the Red Bank Guinness Oyster Fest has been on my calendar all summer. As of right now the festival is still on for Sunday, September 24th, 2011 12:00pm to 7:00pm, if crossing our fingers doesn’t work, the rain date is scheduled for Sunday, October 2, 2011. Red Bank RiverCenter will post the status of the event on their website Saturday afternoon.
Proceeds will benefit the Jane H. Booker Cancer Center at Riverview Medical Center so please come help support the cause. To entice you further, there will be oysters, continuous live music, fabulous food along with Guinness, Harp & Smithwyck’s. If you’re not a beer drinker there will be wine and other drinks too!
Live music acts include 2U (they are a cover band, guess which one), Peter Karp & Sue Foley, Robert Ender Band, McLean Avenue Band, Brian Kirk & the Jirks and The Funktion.
After missing last year’s event, we have every intention of making it this year and hope to see you there. Sheraton Eatontown Hotel has rooms available for Sunday night so make your reservations here: http://www.sheratoneatontown.com/
