Summer Stringbean Stroll

This was a big hit in May so let's do it again.  We will meet at the badge hut in Ocean Grove and walk north through to the Asbury Park board

walk.  Last summer,  we had a couple of magical evenings, hanging out and listening to legendary blues singer Stringbean and his band The Boardwalk Social Club who play for free in front of Langosta Lounge.   The band will start playing a little after 6 and they are terrific.  We will stop there and listen to them and then walk back.  They play two sets with a break in between.

This is a very casual walk.  Bring a chair to sit on (or there are benches,) some snacks to share and your ears.  People can bring substantial picnic type food to share or there are some casual venues right there like Pop's Garage where you can sit and buy food or drinks. If you prefer or are running late, you can meet us at the Lounge which is on the boardwalk off of Ocean Ave. and Second Ave.  

If you are walking with us, please sign up so I know you are coming.  Feel free to leave when you'd like - it is an easy stroll back - but let me know if you are leaving.  Parking in OG shouldn't be too bad at that time of the day but you might want to leave some extra time to find a spot.

Note the date.  This walk will be in two weeks - not next week.

Very cold or rainy weather will cancel this event.  Check here or your e-mail one hour before if the weather is iffy.  And layer up for sitting and listening!

    It was a great night. For those who couldn't make it, here is a link to a really quick video of the Stringbean band (hope it works); https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZz2WMkamEs

    Hi, I won't be able to make for the walk, but will be at Langosto Lounge.

    MAYBE! First time walking in a long time and depending on what my doc tells me today I might or might not be able to keep up with you. Need to exercise as I put 5 pounds on in the last 2 weeks but got hit with a baseball and might have a concussion. Feel fine but not sure what he will tell me. Regardless, have fun with or without me!

      Good luck with the doctor! Hope to see you tonight. This is a relatively short walk.

    May not make it by 6:00. If not will meet you at Langusta. Looking forward to a beautiful night on the boardwalk!

    Just to reiterate about the food situation for tomorrow night. This is a very casual walk and gathering. You are welcome to bring snacks (or gourmet meals!) to share or there are several outdoor casual places right there to get something to eat or drink.

    Bring a chair to sit on or there are usually some benches available too.

    Weather looks like it will be gorgeous. Looking forward to a nice evening!

    Do please update if you are not going to make it. We will leave promptly.
