Despite the loss of a perennial favorite, Red Banks Summer Series in Riverside Park is still poised to draw plenty of fanfare with a busy schedule, packed with plenty of movies, music and fitness events over the next couple months.
After nearly a decade, Brookdale Raidos Songwriters in the Park series will move from Red Bank to Belmar, according to Parks and Recreation Director Memone Crystian.
Belmar was able to offer the program full funding, which we, unfortunately, could not, Crystian told redbankgreen. Basically, it was an offer they just couldnt refuse.
With a plethora of restaurants, Red Bank is a diner’s delight year-round. But in summer, it takes on a casual and unhurried demeanor as the doors are thrown open and tables moved outside. And when the food and the company are right, the sunset, stars and passersby become part of a magical milieu.
In her swan song for the summer, redbankgreen photo intern Stacie Fanelli serves up an enticing appetizer of open-air dining pix taken around town over the past two months.
