Monday – Monday is most often associated with a recovery day around Manasquan but if you’re more the adventurous type or in the area for vacation you might want to check out Nip Night at the Norwood Inn in Avon. $1 7oz bud and bud light bottles and more of a quiet relaxed atmosphere with live music makes the Norwood a great option for your Monday night.
Tuesday – Beat the Clock at Bar Anticipation in Lake Como is a year round favorite but is especially busy between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Beat the Clock starts at 8pm with 50 cent 8oz Bud Light drafts. The price goes up every half hour by 25 cents until midnight. Cover is $10 after 8pm but get there early and avoid the line that is guaranteed to be nearly to the train tracks as 8pm approaches.
Thursday – Thursday night is the early beginning of the weekend, and specials are abound at the Jersey Shore. D’Jais in Belmar has their weekly theme party with a different theme each week. Themes range from Italian Night, to Pajama Night, and even Christmas in July. It’s a great time in a party atmosphere. Also on Thursday night you can find the $1 shot wheel at Leggett’s Sand Bar in Manasquan. Come out and enjoy live music every Thursday and spin the wheel to see what shot will be available for only $1 for the next half hour.
Friday – The weekend begins as soon as you punch out of work and get into Manasquan and what better way to celebrate the work week being over than going to The Parker House in Sea Girt. Friday Night Happy Hour at Parker House features $1 Bud and Bud Light bottles from 6-9pm and live music from Old No. 7 and Pat Roddy Band. Parker House is the best way to start your weekend.
Saturday – Saturday is jam packed with options of places to go and things to do. If you’re looking to go out early and spend the day on the beach, Martell’s Tiki Bar in Point Pleasant is the place to start. Tiki Bar is the only place in the area that you can legally drink on the beach so it’s the place to enjoy great weather on Saturday afternoon. After you come off the beach at Tiki Bar, D’Jais in Belmar has their famous “Off the Beach Happy Hour” featuring drink specials and a free buffet. Later in the night on Saturday The Osprey in Manasquan is a great option. With their Band room and the DJ room and never ending ice cold Bud Light aluminum bottles, it’s definitely the place to party in Manasquan. Just north of Belmar there is The Headliner in Neptune City where there is no cover for ladies before 10pm. It also boasts the latest bar close in the area with the party going until 3am every Saturday.
Sunday – Sunday Funday is a time honored tradition at the Jersey Shore, and the Parker House is the place to be. Lobsters and mini burgers on the back porch make for a great afternoon and $1 nips and Pat Roddy Band rock the night away for the best Sunday Funday around.
