August 30, 2008. Paddy and I decided to go out for dinner and while surfing the internet I found a Jazz and Blues Festival next to some fine restaurants, near Pier Village in Long Branch, NJ.
We chose the Ocean Place Resort for dinner. It had a nice outdoor restaurant, a large bar area and live music. The facility was very nice, the food and service was excellent.
The festival was a short walk from the restaurant, along the beach promenade. The music was good, they had rides for the kids and of course lots of food venues.
It started out as just dinner, but ended up as a very nice evening activity.
