New York does it. Boston Does it. Heck, even Cape May does it. So, it’s about time the Jersey Shore did it, don’t you think? I thought so, that is why I volunteered to serve on the planning committee of the first annual Jersey Shore Restaurant Week.
Jersey Shore Restaurant Week is a wonderful opportunity to re-visit your favorite restaurants and try new ones. Scheduled for November 6-15, 2009…after the summer and before the Holidays…it’s the perfect time to gather your friends and enjoy the Jersey Shore ’s great restaurants.
Participants will offer a three course meal with 3 choices in each category for $20.09 or $30.09.
In the first week after our mailing to area restaurants, we had 18 restaurants jump on board and the number is growing every day.
We’ve had some really great sponsors step up also including JerseyMikes, NJMonthly and Millenium Radio who will be publicizing Restaurant Week on 943thepoint.com, WOBM.com, WOBMAM.com, 1057thehawk.com, and FOXSports1310.com. Click here for a full list of sponsors.
A series of Special Events are also planned for the week beginning with a Kick-Off party on November 5th at the Grand Arcade in Asbury Park followed by “Burgers, Bloodies and Brews”, “Brunch at the Beach”, “Wines and Cheeses of Italy” and “The Great Jersey Shore Martini Contest.”
