Very exciting time of year in Monmouth County for Jazz/Blues enthusiasts and Gays alike!

Friday kicks off the 22nd Annual Red Bank Jazz & Blues Festival at Marine Park. While I dig the music, I go more for the BBQ! Some of the best BBQ in NJ is to be had there for sure. I’m hoping to swing by on Friday night. Who’s game?

Sunday marks the 17th Annual Jersey Pride Celebration. As always there will be a parade, live entertainment, and, you guessed it, BBQ!!!!!! I look forward to “coming out” to support my gays! Who’s coming?

How horrible is it that I have no desire to check out the Street Fair today? I drove by (on Maple) and saw the crowds and it freaked me out just looking at it. I tend not to have a good time in large crowds. I get claustrophobic! 😦 That’s not to say I don’t go to fairs and festivals or open air markets, but I’m usually in and out in a flash. Or if alcohol is available it tends to calm my nerves.

Another reason I’m not tempted to go down there is because we really need to pinch pennies now that we are moving at the end of the month. I don’t really have the funds to purchase anything which is the fun of going to such things, ya know?

Instead I’m gonna stay home and make some coconut curried chicken and eggplant for dinner. 🙂

Count Basie Theatre’s Cool School’s performance of “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” on Aug. 14 should be very interesting!
