This Weekend at the Shore

If you're headed to the South Jersey shore this weekend, there's tons to do (aside from, of course, sitting on the beach). Here are a few of those things:

If You're a Runner: Saturday is the Sea Isle City Island Run. It's 10 miles, seven of which are on the beach. Starts at 5:30 pm (low tide). Call 609-263-3655 for more information. Runners, remember to HYDRATE. It's going to be a hot one. And if anyone wants to pick up my race t-shirt since I'll be stuck in the library working on this book/proposal for the next book instead of testing my calves on the sand, I'd appreciate it...and I'll see you at the Ocean Drive Marathon in March!

If You're Over 21: Might as well apply your bar money to a good cause. Saturday is Bobblepalooza, a house party in Avalon that raises money for MS research. The price is somewhere between $10-20 to get in, and last year they had 50 kegs. No, that's not a typo. 5-0 kegs. The place is packed, as you can see in this video (and turn the volume down if you're at work):

The party starts at 1 pm at 496 22nd Street in Avalon.

If You're a Shopper: Delia's is having a warehouse sale at the Wildwoods Convention Center (4500 Boardwalk, Wildwood, 609-729-9000). I took a quick peek in earlier this week, and there are more than a few items for the non-in-high school crowd. No entry fee, either.

If You're a Music Fan: Rain, the Beatles Experience, is at the Atlantic City Hilton Casino (Boston & Pacific Avenues, Atlantic City, 609-340-7160) this weekend. Read all about it in a recent Atlantic City Weekly article.

And, of course, the Art of Surfing festival continues in Ocean City.

This is far from a complete list, but a few things that caught my eye. Enjoy!

What I'm Listening to: Garden State soundtrack.
