Book signing appearances by baseball badboy  Darryl Strawberry (right) and niceguy DJ Pete Fornatale. Benefit bike races around Fair Haven and Sandy Hook. Celeb photo exhibit openings and doggie fashion shows; mini-golf and mini-concerts in the most unexpected places — it’s all happening in this busy month of September, and all there for your perusal in today’s edition of Red Bank oRBit.

It’s also drawn from The Orb, that mystically all-seeing feature that provides the poop and the scoop on practically every diverting event of note in and around the greater Red Bank orbit. You can gaze into the dazzling crystal yourself; it resides in the left column of our site. Still, once a month we’ll be pulling down from its pull-down database to bring you an early and helpful heads-up on a selected sackful of special events that might have otherwise escaped your notice — the better to make those donations, fill out those registrations, get that Hermes scarf on your uncooperative pooch.

Hey, you try sharing space with an insufferably “all-knowing” Orb — it may not be easy, but it comes in handy when you’re looking for a one-stop source for events info. And you’ve come to the right place, which is to say the pixelated pages of Red Bank oRBit!
