This past weekend we met up with friends of my husband’s from his high school, Cedar Ridge High that was in Old Bridge, NJ. They were all in the band, and he was a trumpet player, and I guess you could say he still is. He played the cornet, which is like a squashed up trumpet, and he has a concert French trumpet that he found at a huge flea market at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA.
Anyhoo, so we went on Sunday to have lunch at Pop’s Garage, which is right on the boardwalk. On a Sunday. Summertime. In July. Down Da Jersey Shore. In Asbury Park. Around 1PM= NO PARKING. We managed to find parking, but I got out with The Kid, put our names down for a table and sat at the bar inside so that we could eat something, because she was hungry and frankly, so was I. I had 2 steak tacos and she had a Quesadilla. We waited for the others, and they all eventually got a place to park, except for one other person because:
It’s a Sunday. Summertime. In July. Down Da Jersey Shore. In Asbury Park. Around 1PM= NO PARKING. Oh and she had TWO small kids in the car who were hungry and she found NO PARKING.I was sorry that she couldn’t join us, but as a parent, I didn’t blame her one bit!
All in all, we had a great time! There was one other child, he was 8, while our kid is 9. The food was really good, and then afterwards, we went to The Silverball Museum which was right next door. I’ve been wanting to go here for ages and it did not disappoint.
We then went for some ice cream, walked around and of course I had my camera and flash. So I snagged a few shots of our beautiful child <3
As a parent we do anything within reason for our children, and this is my reason for succeeding in my business. It’s why I rely on local and large businesses to come back to me no matter how small the job is.
