By SUSAN ERICSON

Winding down the summer, PieHole seeks out a cooling oasis at the end of an oppressively hot and humid day and finds sweet reward at Strollo’s Lighthouse in Red Bank.

Wedged, literally, at the junction of Rector Place, Bridge Avenue and Riverside Avenue, the ice cream shop is a beacon to behold at the foot of Cooper’s Bridge.

RED BANK: DE-ICING FOR DE REOPENING

When Kevin Valerio announced the annual re-opening of his Strollo’s Lighthouse Italian Ice business in Red Bank last week, daytime temperatures were peaking around 70 degrees. So he didn’t expect the stand, at Rector Place and North Bridge Avenue, to be encrusted in American ice and snow that he and his employees would have to hack away at with less than 24 hours to go.

FAIR HAVEN: FOOD + FALL = TRUCKTOBERFEST

[UPDATE, September 29: Because of rain in forecast for Saturday, this event has been rescheduled for Saturday, October 22, and starting and ending an hour earlier than originally planned.]

fh-trucktoberfest-logoOK, so the name turns out not to be as original as organizers thought, given than there was a Trucktoberfest at Monmouth Park less than two weeks ago.

Still, when the Fair Haven version of Trucktoberfest rolls into Fair Haven Fields this Saturday, it will mark the borough’s debut food festival, one with the hipster cred of chow served through a stainless-steel trimmed window.

ON THE GREEN: SPRING ON THE HORIZON?

LEADING SCHOOL OF THOUGHT: IT’S SUMMER!

For kids, it’s the best time of the school year: the end. And right about now, they can taste it.

Literally so, for some students at the Red Bank Charter School. Yesterday, they invaded the grassy field of Riverside Gardens Park for their annual field day, which includes a free-for-all for kids to blast tone another and their teachers with  water balloons.

Red Bank Middle School students, meanwhile, still have another few days until they can hit the beach with any regularity. But the school’s 6th graders spent Thursday priming for the dog days with their counterparts from Monmouth Beach.

SPRUNG AT LAST

The first weekend of spring 2009 turned out to be a good one for drawing pictures on your friend's jeans, getting the first Italian ice of the season at Strollo's Lighthouse or hauling away on foot what appears to have been the accoutrements of a birthday party, including balloons, a pizza and a bagful of who-knows-what.

WHERE HAVE I SEEN THIS?

Where_111308_ir

You’d have thought it was a sweltering week in the dead of summer instead of the crisp, Thanksgiving-tinged days of autumn.

Last week’s Where, showing a blue and white striped fence, attracted 23 responses, which may be a record for this feature (we really ought to start keeping track of such critical data). And what brought most of them out was, of all things, Italian ice served by a business that’s closed for the season.

Which is to say the great majority of those who wrote in recognized the fence as the one behind Strollo’s Lighthouse, the landmark Italian ice joint at junction of Route 35, Rector Place and Bridge Avenue in Red Bank.

WHERE HAVE I SEEN THIS?

Where12_07

See, kids? This is where having a particular expertise comes in handy.

Retromedia Sound Studios owner John Noll used his specialized knowledge in sound technology to identify last week’s ‘Where‘ as a picture of a loudspeaker atop 1 Broad Street, home of Heritage Liquors (at the corner of East Front Street).

Or maybe John just notices things above street level more than than average redbankgreen reader.

Either way, thanks and congrats to John.

Can you identify this week’s image? Email your guesses to us, please. (And is it just us, or does staring at this photo make you crave an orange Italian ice from Strollo’s? No, that’s not a hint.)
