We don’t know about you, but here at Red Bank oRBit we are unequivocally “finished with the Feb” and ready to put that shortest (and, as it turned out, cruelest) of months behind us, as we fix our Ides on March and its promises of attitude adjustment — from the lion’s mouth, right on through the lamb’s tail.

Today’s edition of redbankgreen‘s satellite site has the goods on Dine Downtown, the returning promotion by which the folks at RiverCenter and much of the Red Bank restaurant community bands together to offer a set of discounted Prix Fixe dinner options, every Tuesday and Wednesday evening throughout the month of March. We’ve got the delectable details, some suggested shows to chase that dinner with, and a handy-dandy guide to all the participating bistros, boites, banquet rooms and beaneries.

Also today, a reminder of another March comeback — this one the return of the Nelson Riddle Orchestra to Asbury Park. The late great Oscar-Emmy-Grammy winning composer, arranger and bandleader (above) helped forge the sounds of some of the biggest names in the music biz — AND he was in the first graduating class of Rumson High School. The family-led project presents a pair of dinner/show concerts this weekend at Tim McLoone’s Supper Club, along with a rehearsal reception on Thursday and a Riddle-related Saturday matinee screening at the Showroom. We’ve got the details on this swingin’ session PLUS an archived look back at our interview with Riddle’s daughter Rosemary, only in Red Bank oRBit!
