“Vibe in the Streets” Offers Music, Open-Air Dining, Art Demos and More Every Thursday in June
AP Vibe, Asbury Park’s Downtown Business Alliance, is celebrating the return of summer with its “Vibe in the Streets” series. Slated for every Thursday in June, the free all-ages event will take place in the heart of Asbury Park’s downtown business district and feature open-air dining, happy hour specials, and promotions at the city’s popular retailers. Outdoor concerts and interactive art demonstrations will round out the weekly event.
“’Vibe in the Streets’ is a result of Asbury Park’s downtown business community uniting to produce an action-packed roster of weekly events and promotions to celebrate the season,” commented Rosemary Crean, co-founder of AP Vibe. “The city’s downtown business district offers a plethora of amenities that make it an appealing destination for people of all ages. Through this cooperative effort, retailers, restaurants and entertainment destinations have banded together to create a memorable evening out on the town.” In celebratory fashion, the city will close off street traffic to Bangs and Cookman Avenue between Emory Street and Grand Avenue from 5 to 9 p.m. every Thursday. Attendees are invited to peruse the “Vibe in the Streets” event area, as well as explore the storefronts, art galleries and dining destinations that extend throughout Asbury Park’s eclectic downtown.
Restaurants like Ivan & Andy’s Prime, Old Man Rafferty’s and Baca will extend their dining rooms out to the roadway, creating a piazza-style streetscape with savory samplings from their popular menus. Confections of a Rock$tar and Casa di Dolce Gelataria will tempt palates with sweet treats, and Hot Sand Glass Studio will invite guests to explore their creative side with interactive glass-art activities. An on-site beer truck promises to complement an expansive stage where event-goers can take-in live music and art demonstrations.
“Vibe in the Streets” will be held from 5:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. on July 11, 18 and 24. Entrance is free and open to the public. For additional details on music performances, art demonstrations, and restaurant and retailer promotions, please visit www.APVibeDowntown.com for more information.
