Tuesday Feature: Jersey Shore Spot of the Week!

Contrary to popular belief, the Jersey Shore doesn't slow down for winter! There are still lots of things to do, lots of places to see, and lots of fun to be had! We're sharing another Jersey Shore Spot of the Week for you to fill those fall nights!

Atlantic City Historical Museum

  Garden Pier, 701 Boardwalk, Atlantic City
10 A.M. to 4 P.M.
Free to the Public

Permanent Exhibit--Atlantic City, Playground of the Nation: Displays artifacts, costumes, posters, photographs, songsheets, postcards, souvenirs, and an array of Miss America memorabilia. Mr. Peanut greets visitors to this unique museum and points the way to a miniature Boardwalk and beach area featuring a fascinating collection of original sand art. After 100 years, Heinz pickle pins are still given out at the museum.
The entertaining historical video, "Boardwalk Ballyhoo: The Magic of Atlantic City," is shown continuously throughout the day. The documentary includes spectacular footage of the Miss America Pageant, archival Thomas Edison beach shots, and the famous high-diving horse. The video traces the resort's famous history from it's early beginnings to the casino city of today, and includes a memorable soundtrack.
Al Gold Photography Gallery: A rotating photography exhibit that is dedicated to presenting various culturally inclusive exhibitions depicting Atlantic City history. Al Gold was born in Philadelphia in 1902 and came to Atlantic City for his health. His foray in photography began in 1921 when he photographed the first Miss America pageant. His photographic skills became widely known and in 1939 he was appointed Atlantic City's first Chief Photographer, a post he held until his death in 1964. "Goldie," as he was affectionately known by all was one of the most popular news photographers in the East.

Tuesday Feature: Jersey Shore Spot of the Week!

Happy Tuesday! We here at Mark Arbeit and Co. are working hard before the holidays to bring you the best of the Jersey Shore. Today, we have another Jersey Shore Spot of the week for Tuesday's feature!

Scout Clothing and Decor
Ventnor City, NJ

 Hanna Sinderbrand, Margate native, opened Scout to bring comfortable, chic fashion of New York City or Los Angeles to the Jersey Shore. The clothes and home accessories are for young and old alike.
The name Scout stands for the act of scouting, or searching for something old or new--the idea of going out and finding what you love.

The Clothes: An eclectic mix of vintage and new items, with a large amount of contemporary clothing and a small variety of vintage clothing. The classics are all there: Blue jeans and cotton T-shirts, sweaters, comfortable clothes you can wear anywhere and for anything. One featured brand, Alternative Apparel, includes tees that are somewhat oversize and longer, in all different colors. The main denim line, James Jeans, features jeans that are designed for women instead of teenagers.
The Decor: Scout features a small amount of contemporary decor items combined with a large amount of vintage home decor. The vintage accessories include trinkets and keepsakes from across the country and Europe, from glassware to martini shakers to perfume bottles. The furniture display features a chest, a chair and a desk that are also for sale. The store is expecting contemporary home decor items from N.Y. designer Jonathan Adler, including salt and pepper shakers, backgammon sets, and other gift pieces.
Location: 5301 Atlantic Ave., Ventnor City, NJ

Monday Feature: Blog of the Week!

It's another beautiful Monday down the Jersey Shore, which means we have another Blog of the Week to share!

We chose The Cooking Blog, a cooking and food weblog by Wendy Cooper. It is her collection of recipes, articles, and ideas that she loves and chooses to share with her readers and fans.

Our favorite recipe:
  • 8 soda crackers, finely crushed
  • 2 cans (120 g each) canned crabmeat, drained
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) finely chopped green onions
  • 4 tsp (20 mL) light mayonnaise 
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) hot pepper sauce
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) Worcestershire sauce 
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) dried oregano leaves
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) grated lemon rind
  • 1/3 cup (75 mL) corn flake crumbs
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) grated Parmesan cheese
  1. In large bowl, combine crackers, crabmeat, egg, onion, mayonnaise, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, oregano and lemon rind. Divide mixture into 12 portions and pat into small patties, about 2-inch (5 cm) rounds; set aside.
  2. In large, shallow dish combine corn flake crumbs and cheese. Coat all sides of patties in crumb mixture. Place on lightly greased baking sheet. Bake at 400°F (200°C) 8 minutes, turn and cook 8-10 minutes longer or until crumbs are golden brown. Makes 12 mini crab cakes.
Serve warm with heated pizza sauce for dipping.

Why We Love This Blog: This is not your ordinary cooking blog. The recipes are a mix of some of her own delicious concoctions and some that come recommended by magazines, websites, and more. There is also an eclectic mixture of posts and articles that are food-related in some way.

Why You Would Love This Blog: In addition to easy-to-follow recipes for any occasion, you can find helpful tips for Christmas gift ideas, videos on a variety of food-related topics, and fun facts about fast food and restaurant life.
