This isthe nerdiest thing EVER, but... I'm in Ocean Grove, NJ which is like a minute from Asbury Park. I've already had ice cream on Cookman and gone to the casino. But, I'm looking for other Gaslight related places to hit up, I'd really appreciate some suggestions. Oh, and there's a small chance that I'm getting a Gaslight tattoo here. And, yes, I know this is really, really nerdy.

1. Call someone from the 4th street payphone
2. Buy a house on Cookman
3. Sleep on the beach all night

good luck with that!

what about the Court Tavern? look for Diamond Razz
you should take some pictures! i'd love to do this, i've actually thought of doing it myself in the future, so i'm quite jealous right now.
oh, and look for the ferris wheel (i don't think there is only one in all NJ, but still...)

I gotta find that payphone!! What Brian doesn't tell you is that they charge $7 to get on the beach during the day! Also weird that they pump your gas for you. Bea, thanks for making me feel a little less nerdy Smile

Will hopefully hit up the lanes sometime this week. It's awesome that it just so happens that one of my best friends is from Asbury Park. When we met, he didn't even know who Gaslight was. Now, he even has a Gaslight tattoo. Good times.

Go to Paulies Pizza Cafe, 34 Easton Ave., New Brunswick, and ask for a 'Fat Veggie Benny', which will cost you $6.25. It's named after ..., yes, you've guessed, who used to work there.

Fat Sandwiches, haha, good times.

but I still prefer Hansel n' Griddle, they have a newer location next to the Tavern, after going to the basement to watch some bands, experience how tiny and a fire hazard that basement is, drink a PBR or two, and then go to the Griddle to refuel.

That is amazing! Really wish I could go there, but I really don't think I'll get to.

So July 4th weekend I went to Jersey for my best friends wedding. On the 4th I was driving (using GPS because I left Jersey before I had my license and still don't know where I am half the time) to see an old friend at night and the GPS took me through some crazy backroads. All of a sudden I passed a sign that said I was in Red Bank and I went over a bridge that said "The Navesink River". I about erupted like a little girl. Mind you, I'ma 28 year old man from Jersey, and I almost reacted that way. I had a swell of pride for my GA boys and all of my fellow fans (including the peeps on this board). I wish you all could have been there. Unless you live there, then, it's cool.

Update: Not getting a tatto anymore cause I have no money :'( Took pics at a couple of places and feel like a total dweeb. Did not find a 4th street payphone :'( However, found a 4th ave payphone by electric tattoo which is kind of close, right? Verbos, I'm supposed to be going to Red Bank tomorrow, I really hope I see that sign so my heart can skip a beat!

Red Bank has a really nice downtown with some good places to eat. Hopefully you can get some time to chill and enjoy the local amenities!

Lots of info here: http://www.redbank.com/ if you've got the time.

Justin boots and music–part two



Favorite [url= http://www.justin-boots-wholesale.com]Justin boots[/url]: Style #3171 – Black Full Quill Ostrich Roper–George Strait has dominated the country music scene with 25 Platinum albums and 37 number one singles. He has broken one box office record after another and has produced and headlined one of the biggest and highest grossing live music festivals. George started thinking about music during his three year stint in the army. He bought a cheap guitar and some Hank Williams songbooks and went about teaching himself some songs. He got a band and started to play, eventually entertaining the troops. He later found his band, Ace in the Hole, by posting a notice on a campus bulletin board saying “COUNTRY SINGER NEEDS BAND.”



Favorite Style #3186 – Cognac Full Quill Ostrich Roper. Justin brands is proud to have the George Strait collection of [url= http://www.justin-boots-wholesale.com]Justin boots[/url] that grows every year. A truly remarkable fellow, most people don’t know that George’s share of the profits from his boot collection goes to charity. This brand is versatile too, from rodeo arenas to the pages of fashion magazines, our boots have the ability to fit virtually any lifestyle. They have recently been featured in fashion spreads in Cosmopolitan, CosmoGIRL and YM Magazine. For Fine western boots, ropers and cowboy styles, known around the world, buy with confidence from Justin Boots.



[url= http://www.justin-boots-wholesale.com]Justin boots[/url], just the right song, just the in music in everyone’s heart.
