IN oRBit: WEISSGUYS AND GOOD NEIGHBORS

Today’s edition of Red Bank oRBit looks in on a couple of our favorite restaurants — not so coincidentally run by a couple of our favorite restaurateurs, both of them avid surfers — with an eye toward some special events that they’ll be presenting in the nights to come.

First, we’ll head over to musician-friendly Jamian’s Food and Drink in Red Bank, where some pretty famous faces are expected to be hanging around throughout the month of December. It’s all thanks to another of proprietor Jamian LaViola‘s monthly art exhibits; this one a display of photographs by Mark Weiss (above), the local-dude-made-good who’s long specialized in shooting such stars of arena-scale rock as Jon Bon Jovi, Ozzy Osbourne, Aerosmith and Kiss.

Then we take it down to Langosta Lounge on the Asbury boards, scene of a hugely successful Holiday Soup Kitchen event this Thanksgiving past — where owner and tireless driving force Marilyn Schlossbach (right, with niece) plans to celebrate her popular spot’s first birthday this week by giving back to the community once again, in the form of a “fundraiser fiesta” for the Hispanic Affairs and Resource Center. We’ve got pix from Thanx plus the story on Chef Marilyn’s many irons in the fire; served up with a side of the freshest and tastiest events from the coming week — only in Red Bank oRBit.

Remember: Nothing makes a Red Bank friend happier than to hear "I saw you on Red Bank Green!"
