Great Night Out in Sea Bright
Have you been to The Rum Runner since the rebuild?
It took a few years post-Sandy for Tim McLoone to get The Rum Runner on Ocean Avenue in Sea Bright built. It's been open now for about a year-and-a-half, but New Year's Eve was the first time I was able to get there...and it is spectacular.
Standing near the bar is equal to being on a cruise ship...you are literally right over the Shrewsbury River. I will surely be coming back here in the summer to enjoy being outside on the back deck with that spectacular view!
But it was warm and cozy inside with the beautiful fireplace and the lights from the buildings on the other side of the river. And there were chunks of ice floating by -- it felt like we were on the Titanic and I should be yelling "Iceberg!"
Dinner was fabulous....Filet Mignon cooked to perfection and some wonderful Brie En Croute, Lobster Guacamole, and so much more!
I had the pleasure of dinner in the restaurant and drinks at the bar while my son Ben (14 years old) performed at his first New Year's Eve gig with BethAnne Clayton, Byron Smith, Mario Casella, and the amazing Paul Reinhold on bass -- Ben's friend/band mate (he is 15!) and BethAnne's son.
It was an awesome experience listening to the band and watching everyone dance and knowing that Ben got to be a part of making peoples' New Year that much more enjoyable.
What did you do on New Year's Eve?
