Monday Night on the Asbury Park Boardwalk

One of our favorite blues bands – String Bean and the Stalkers – plays every Monday night in front of Libby's Beach Shack on the Asbury Park boardwalk.  We’d like to combine a walk with a stop to listen to them, and then perhaps continue on to the end of the boardwalk during the break between sets, and come back for the second set.  This will be a very casual gathering and those who don’t want to stay to listen can turn back at any time.  On the way back, we will probably stop at Day’s on the boardwalk for ice cream or folks can grab something to eat or drink at Pop’s Garage, Libby’s Beach Shack or Langosta Lounge. 


We’ll meet at the badge hut in Ocean Grove at 6 and walk through the Casino to Asbury Park.  If anyone prefers, you are welcome to just meet us in front of Libby's for the listening.  (Go to Langosta Lounge on the boardwalk at Second Ave. and head north.) 
 This will be a very casual gathering and those who don’t want to stay to listen can turn back at any time.  We do request that if you start out with us, you let us know if you are leaving so we don’t get all mother henny. On the way back, we will probably stop at Day’s on the boardwalk for ice cream or folks can grab something to eat or drink at Pop’s Garage, Libby’s Beach Shack or Langosta Lounge. 

Newbies welcome! As you will see, we are a friendly group and everyone is happy to meet newcomers.

Rain will cancel.  Watch the site for cancellations if the weather is inclement; you will also be noticed by e-mail if you have registered.

    First I would like to say that is was so good seeing Jay after 11 years.
    thank you Jay, Jan and Daryl for make this walk and walks that you do so enjoyable for me. I would like to that the usual suspects I walk with and to the new ones I met tonight.
    The blues band "String Bean and the Stalkers" were really good.
    Lastly I would like to say to those who sign up but then for reasons like how the weather may be...
    .it usually isn't as bad as the radio says it will be
    Not out here.
    I have had more friends not come to the beach expecting rain
    when I sat on the beach with nothing but sunshine,
    which I don't mind sharing with anyone.......
    Sometimes it's very hard getting motivated to get out
    But never forget and you know
    It's usually worth it when you do
    I will be in Washington DC Thursday (when the President calls.....)
    I'm LQQKING forward to Sunday's walk
    with my old walking partners and my new ones

    What a delightful walk this turned out to be! As usual, I had a great time, met lots of friendly people and enjoyed good conversation. The leisurely pace was just what I need this evening. And now I'm a Stringbean fan! Thanks Jan and Jay!
