SEA BRIGHT: An upcoming borough event will allow guests to sip and sample a little bit of everything that Sea Bright has to offer.
The Businesses of Sea Bright (BSB) is bringing back the Taste of Sea Bright event this month under a new name, Sip And Sample. The event was held before Hurricane Sandy hit the borough.
On Saturday, April 29, for $40, those who attend will hop on a bus and stop at 23 Sea Bright businesses and restaurants.
Admission includes food, drinks, cocktails, event transportation, giveaways from many of the stops on the map, a complimentary BSB Sip & Sample backpack - and free entry into the passport drawing if you complete the course.
Patrons can park in Sea Bright and will receive a passport and map indicating designated parking areas where they can buy tickets and then visit the stops in any order they wish between 12:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. on the day of the event. There will be five buses continually looping the course that will drop off and pick up guests at each stop. The event ends at 5:30 pm, but the buses will continue to provide free transportation until 6:30 p.m.
At the end of the day, a raffle will be held and three winners will be chosen. The winners will win denominations of $100, $200 and $300 that will be redeemable as "sand dollars" for use at any of the participating businesses.
Northshore Men's & Women's Wear Owner Brian George said the BSB wanted to bring the event back to showcase the town post-Hurricane Sandy.
"We are trying to promote the town and show that it's not just a place to go to the beach," George said. "It's not just sand and sea, it's real people providing services and great food to people of Monmouth County."
