Every once in a while I come across some classic  Lou & Liz photos. Here's how Lou and I kicked off Memorial Day weekend...9 years ago!

We were up on the roof of Grieco Beverages in Brielle waving at the tourists as they approached the drawbridge to Point Pleasant Beach for the holiday weekend.

We were having a blast, and getting honked at, and I don't think I ever knew that behind my back, a (much different looking) devious Lou Russo was plotting to push me (LOL and JK!!!)

And yes, that was back in my very dark brown/black hair days :)

Cathy, from Grieco Beverages, found these fun photos that show just how much we have changed!

Grieco Beverages is now closed, awaiting an official sale. But the liquor store saw its share of rock stars, with a couple of Bon Jovi members stopping by from time to time. The owners, who we love and remain friends with, decided to move on to other wonderful life adventures after years of running one of the most successful small businesses at the Jersey Shore.

Cathy loves her rock star photos! She also is so proud of her son, Anthony, who has a store in Bay Head on Bridge Ave. next to Mueller's Bakery called Opal and Olive (home décor.) So keep supporting small, local businesses. We will miss you and Tony but glad you are enjoying life!
