Your Shore Weekend: Boom Boom Pow Edition

I got the Victoria's Secret fall catalogue today. WHAT?! July 1 and apparently I'm supposed to be thinking about fall? Nuts to that -- here's your Fourth of July weekend shore report:

Traffic. Lots and lots of traffic...and a FREE concert at Chicken Bone Beach in Atlantic City.

Plus movie under the stars in Sea Isle.

Il Divo is divoing at the Borgata.

And the Doobie Brothers are, um, doobieing at the Tropicana.

Wallflowers! Also at the Borgata.

Boom boom pow! We've got fireworks in Atlantic City, Sea Isle, Wildwood and Cape May. FREE

Other than fireworks...Joe Cocker is playing the Atlantic City Hilton.

There's a beard growing competition wrapping up in Cape May.

The House of Blues at the Showboat at in AC is having a free Michael Jackson Tribute Concert show at 10:30pm.

Ocean City's having two bike parades. And there's one in Cape May, too.

Lots of stuff going on in Stone Harbor, too.

Cape May Stage will feature Go North Penguin, an extra special show for families by puppeteer Scott Hitz & Company in the spirit of Jim Henson.

And, of course, there's the beach -- the beautiful, glorious beach. Weather reports are calling for a stand out weekend -- warm and sunny with low humidity.

I'm heading down on Thursday morning to Wildwood for work, then will be in Sea Isle until Saturday morning when home. WHA?! you might ask? Why leave on what could be the nicest shore weekend of 2009 so far?

One word, folks: family. It's the big Verzella family shin dig on July 4 where we eat, drink, swim and light little pellets we call "snakes" on fire (not actual snakes), then watch fireworks and drink some more. It's not the shore, but for me? That's a nice way to spend the weekend.

So enjoy the July 4 weekend! And if you see a sort of tall women with shoulder length blond hair watching the scene at The OD in Sea Isle, stop by and say hello. It might just be me ;-)
