A wooden sign outside a small cluster of stores in Shrewsbury is a bit enigmatic. It says, simply, “THE STUDY.”
If it sounds like the name of a coffeehouse hoping to create a certain mood, or a college-exam prep outfit, well, the tagline in small type underneath clarifies things a bit, for passersby with good eyesight: “men’s precision grooming.”

To get a sense of how folks around the greater Red Bank Green will be celebrating Thanksgiving, PieHole checked in with a few area barbers and hair stylists. In this, the fifth and final in the series, we pop in on three barbers.
Art’s Barbershop, Monmouth Street.
Jim Murphy, Monmouth Beach: Go over my mother in law’s, and she just cooks like a madwoman. Three different kinds of meats for about 15 to 20 people. She’ll make a ham, turkey and lamb. And she’ll make meatballs, too.
Barber, Rick Memmola: Going to a friend’s house in Long Branch, and we’ll probably have pasta or a lasagna. I’m not a big fan of turkey. I just plan on eating a lot.

Guiseppe “Turtle” Sorrentino has long wanted to own a tattoo parlor in Red Bank, but strict regulations put that plan on the shelf for the near 20 years he’s been working a needle.
The recent move of a business out of a small strip mall on Newman Springs Road the only zone a tattoo shop is allowed in town opened the door for Sorrentino to fulfill his goal.
With the approval of the planning board Monday night to change the use from business to tattooing at 168 Newman Springs Road, the ink will start flowing within the next three months, the Asbury Park native told redbankgreen.
