I had the pleasure of attending the Red Bank Food & Wine Walk last month. The humidity was stifling but everyone we ran into along the way was having a genuinely good time. We sampled decadent cupcakes, Hawaiian pork roll sandwiches, cheese, risotto, wings, pizza, and more. It’s a great way to enjoy Red Bank with friends and family and become acquainted with some of the eateries you may not even know exist. It’s called the Food & Wine Walk but we made it a food and beer walk because Jamian’s and Triumph Brewing were on the map.
And remember: No one says you have to rush your way through the walk. You’ve got three hours, so linger a bit at your favorite spots.
