A Review of the Ugly Mug in Cape May, NJ

I feel like it has been forever since my last review! I went to the Ugly Mug in Cape May when I was making my decision about this blog and creepily enough I kept all of my receipts and remember everything about that trip.

I love going to the Mug.  It’s such a local’s place which can be good or bad depending on whether or not you want a high school reunion that day.  The Mug is a tiny place located in the heart of Cape May.  The size is perfect for any day but Tuesday’s when they have their Terrible Tuesday’s (2 dollar Miller Lites).  The Mug never has a cover which is also fantastic.  One can always find a good source of entertainment here too.  Whether it’s a local band or a DJ there is always something going on here.

Drinking Responsibly

We’ve been having a great time the past few months exploring different bars.  I love going out and sampling all types of drinks so everyone knows the best places to go in Cape May and Wildwood.  However, I thought I would share this article that came out November 9, 2012.  The article states that the  closer one lives to the bar the more often one is prone to drinking.  When they say close to the bar they mean within half a mile (aka walking distance).  So, while I want us to go out and have fun I hope all my readers are drinking responsibly.

Some Local Breweries and Wineries

Sometimes we all don’t really feel like going out to the bar and I thought I’d share some local places to get great home brews and wines!

First on our list is Cape May’s first ever brewery.  2011 The Cape Brewing Company was established.  It was slightly shocking to discover it took us that long to get our own brewery considering the abundance of amazing wineries we have to offer.  Cape May Brewing Company is located in our airport and brew 9 different beers right now according to their website.  They have something for everyone.  They also do tours every weekend.  

Next we have the Cape May Winery.  While it’s not technically located in Cape May, it’s only a hop skip and a jump over the bridge on Townbank Rd. You can find Cape May’s wine’s in a few local restaurants in the Cape May area.  They also do tours for a steal of a price! You can sample 6 wines for 6 dollars and then keep the glass.  The Cape May Winery does a variety of different events and dinners each month!

A Feature of the Bayshore in North Cape May, New Jersey

This week I’ve decided to feature one of our bars and get the inside scoop.

I stopped in The Bayshore Inn of North Cape May.  I wanted to talk to the longtime bartender and one of the waitresses to get the inside scoop on The Bayshore.

William Rodden has been tending bar at the Bayshore for the last 15 years and Dianna Bentley has been a server here for the last 10 years.  They’ve been through numerous owners, renovations, etc  If anyone would know this bar it would be them!
