Yesterday we went to a festival in New Jersey.
We have a bunch of them throughout the summer. But this one was different.
It featured a BBQ contest and music (mostly blues) and it was free (except for the food, of course.) The 2005 festival was featured on the Food Network.
But the surprising part is that it was in Asbury Park. Asbury Park has become a dump, and they are trying to bring it back. The festival is a few blocks away from the shell of what was once a great seashore amusement area. The famous merry go round building is still there, but ready to be torn down. The area looks more like Baghdad than New Jersey, but it is a start.
They are turning to music to save it.
This is not surprising considering the music heritage of the town. This is the home of the Stone Pony one of the legendary music venues in the world. And Bruce immortalized it with his first album "Greetings from Asbury Park." Believe me, it doesn't look like the album cover any more.
The bottom line, though , is this: we had a great time in Asbury Park, and have already bookmarked the website so we don't miss it next
