In addition to the two big events happening this weekend that I talked about earlier this week (AC Seafood Fest and Cape May Food & Wine Celebration), here are five more for you:
* There’s always something going on with Flying Fish. Always. At their home in Somerdale this Saturday, they are having an event called Bogs, Beer, and Native Plants. It’s local celebration, as in celebrating the flora and fauna of the area – not to mention the local suds! Food and Jersey cheese will be available as well. The event runs from 11AM to 6PM and plants will be on sale until 4PM.
* Pinsetter Bar & Bowl in Pennsauken is throwing its annual Crab-A-Palooza this Saturday out in the parking lot starting at 2PM. It’s crabs! It’s drinks! It’s bowling! Here’s a tip: crabs are not a legal substitute for a bowling ball. I know; I checked.
* Yes, it’s already been mentioned, but it is worth repeating: Hawk Haven Vineyard in Rio Grande is having a Lobster Bake as part of the Cape May Food & Wine Celebration. And it’s going on this Saturday from 5PM to 8PM. And you have to buy tickets ahead of time. And there aren’t many tickets left!
* September brings two kinds of beers: pumpkin and Oktoberfest. You can have the pumpkin brews; I will gladly take the latter. Tuckahoe Brewing will be tapping tonight an Oktoberfest beer with rum soaked walnuts. It was a collaborative effort between them and Brew Jersey Homebrew Club. Tapping begins at 5PM.
* The locust is for Johnson’s Locust Hall Farm, which opens today. Johnson’s Corner Farm in Medford purchased a second location in Jobstown which has its own long history. You can visit the Stone Bank Barn which goes back to the 18th Century. Pumpkins will be available as well as hayrides.
