A promo video for the Haunted Theater, which once again invades the Brookdale campus for three weekends beginning this Friday.
We’ve said it before, but while it sometimes seems that the shambling zombies and vamping bloodsuckers of a walk-thru haunted house can’t hold a candle to the horrors of the real world, we do take a strange comfort from the annual appearance of those hooded goblins and snooded ghouls.

River watchers may have noticed a distinctive two-masted vessel with red sails plying our beautiful Navesink on recent Saturdays. That’s Pete’s Banjo, a replica of a 19th-century Tuckerton Oyster Garvey built by members of New Jersey Friends of Clearwater and named in honor of late folk singer Pete Seeger. A true sailboat, it has no motor, so “when there’s no wind, we have to row it back to shore,” says Clearwater’s Charles Gross.

As the summer of 2016 fades into history, it is with great reluctance that PieHole‘s Cool Inside series closes out (sniff!) with a simple classic: a root beer float.
It’s the 15th entry in the series that has served up everything from a waffle bowl to an egg cream, with lots of variety in between. Each was carefully selected to deliver maximum mouthfuls of flavor and bone-cooling effect on a hot summer’s day.
But remember, dear reader: summer doesn’t actually end until September 22. So if you missed any of our stops, there’s a complete list at the bottom of this article to help you keep cool in the interim —and beyond. Because really, if you think about it, does summer actually have to end?
