Thanks to Lauren for telling me about the auction at the old Asbury Park carousel on Saturday. Preview begins at 2:00 p.m., auction starts at 4:00 p.m.
Speaking of auctions, it’s hard to resist an auction at the estate of a man they call Mr. Monmouth County. “George H. Moss, Jr. was a widely known, highly regarded author, consultant and historian of, predominately, 19th Century Monmouth County, NJ. He had amassed highly specialized collections of early 19th Century Monmouth County, including books, illustrations, ephemera and memorabilia…” His bio’s pretty fascinating (click here to read) and certainly sounds like some fun objets d’art will be up for bid. Saturday, July 25, starting at 10:00 a.m. (preview Friday), 39 Rumson Road, Rumson, NJ.
Rock-n-roll legend Leon Russell plays the Wonderbar in Asbury Park tonight. Wild horses couldn’t drag me away. Doors 7:30, show time 8:30. Tickets $30.
It’s Art on the Boardwalk in Ocean Grove, Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., rain or shine. Featuring 74 artists displaying and selling their work. Oils and acrylics, pastels, watercolor, mixed media, pottery, sculpture, photographs, paintings on floor cloths, jewelry, etchings and paper collage.
“Volare…oh oh oh oh.” Bobby Rydell and fellow former teen idols Frankie Avalon and Fabian take the stage at Ocean Grove’s Great Auditorium on Saturday night. Tickets are $40-$45 and available at the door or online.
I can’t wait to see the documentary Herb & Dorothy and am thrilled that The Showroom, the new indie theater on Cookman Avenue (Asbury Park), will be screening the NJ premier of the film on Sunday at 5:00 p.m. A post-reception follows at the very cool Parlor Gallery across the street. All that for $10.
With the exception of Mr. Monmouth County's house, it’s all within a ten minute walk of my front porch.
And this is why I love the shore house.
