Wildfeast Foods @ 10 W. Park Avenue [IT’S FANTASTIC!]

Wildfeast Foods opened their doors at 10 West Park Avenue just three weeks ago. I was finally able to give them a try and let me tell you, this place is fantastic! What we had was an extremely fresh and tasty meal. For appetizer I ate the PROSCIUTTO AND SHAVED BRUSSELS SROUTS, which was out of this world. My main dish was the STUFFED CHICKEN BREAST, Free range chicken stuffed with spinach and goat’s cheese. This came with potatoes and salad on the side. The Chicken was so moist and delicious. This also came wrapped in prosciutto, so I was in heaven. I seriously cannot wait to have it again. My wife ordered the LOCAL DIVER SCALLOPS IN HOUSE SMOKED BACON, which she said was cooked to perfection.

I will definitely be going back for more and more and more, etc, etc. I cannot wait to try other items they have to offer. A scan of the menu is posted below, but you can always view it on their website. Definitely check this place out.

The City of Long Beach will design and construct improvements along Park Avenue to create complete streets and establish a more resilient downtown. Improvements, including permeable pavement utility strips, stormwater treatment, solar street lights, streetscape amenities and wayfinding signage, will mitigate stormwater flooding, revitalize the downtown, generate economic activity, and also enhance the quality of life in this commuter rail community by making it more pedestrian friendly.

The LGBT Network is partnering with the City of Long Beach to produce “Pride on the Beach,” a “3-day destination Pride celebration” leveraging Long Island’s beaches as a natural asset to stimulate out-of-state tourism.

Guess the boardwalk Light! [It’s Game Wednesday!]

I love the boardwalk lights, but one of them confused the heck out of me this morning. At first I thought it was a bleeding elephant. It wasn’t until I got closer when I realized what it actually was. I asked for some guesses on Instagram and Facebook. Here’s what I got so far:

  • “headless mermaid”
  • “a sleigh sideways”
  • “2 goldfish playing wiffle ball”
  • “Tom Carvel says its Fudgie the Whale”
  • It looks like Snoopy, lol.”
  • “Anthony Eramo’s profile”
  • “Its a ‘phant”

Still don’t know what it is? This might help:

No Jones Beach Holiday Lights this year

2014-12-04-19-44-27For those who are wondering what’s the deal with those holiday lights at Jones Beach, I have bad news for you. It ain’t happening this year. I didn’t get a reason why.

Check out my photos from last year. Just put on your Google Cardboard, click on the following link and it’ll be like you’re really there: HOLIDAY LIGHTS SPECTACULAR @ JONES BEACH



Winter bike sharing

I’m wondering if a few of these bikes should be available all year long. I get it how the snow makes riding on the boardwalk very difficult and slippery, but they can still serve a purpose. Are these bikes solely for boardwalk cruising or also as an alternative form of transportation? There are some kiosks that aren’t on the boardwalk. That makes me believe the bikes aren’t just for tourists. If we actually play catch-up and become a Complete Streets city like the rest of the world, seasonal rentals aren’t going to cut it. 

What do you folks think? Are there any year round residents who would use these bikes in the winter if available? 

Tree Déjà vu

There was a dead tree in front of my house that was replaced very early this morning. This was a tree that was first planted a year ago last December. What I’m getting at here is this: should we be planting trees in December? I swear I did this same post a year ago.

Check out the Holiday Lights on December Walk!

Tom who lives in the Walks sent this in:

“If 2 neighbors decorate their houses for Christmas Holiday and no one comes to see it are the lights really on?🎄🎄

Come see the lights, December Walk between West Park Avenue and West Walnut Street in Long Beach!

Since we live on a Walk you have to park and come see in person! Please come and see it, we do it for you!!! Merry Christmas 🎄🎄🎄🎄🎄
