We’ve gone and done it.
The countdown is officially on.
We are only 99 days out from Memorial Day Weekend!
That’s double digits.
But, we digress as there is so much more to be excited about on our beloved sandbar.
Many of our shop owners who took off the month of January will be dusting off their shelves and re-opening their doors for the season this weekend.
Yes, you read that correctly.
While it may still read February on the calendar, more-and-more LBI has become a year-round destination. More to see and do all of the year through!
And then there’s the (predicted) weather forecast.
It’s supposed to be in the 60’s here over the course of the weekend. What’s that?
Haven’t ascended Old Barney in a while? This weekend would appear to be the perfect time.
And then stroll our shops – grab dinner, or lunch.
And check out these highlighted weekend happenings:
