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.

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!

A Review of Owen’s Pub In North Wildwood

We’ve finally made it to my first real review of a bar!

Thursday evening I stopped in Owen’s Pub in North Wildwood for just a quick drink and some apps.  Certainly was the best way to end my school week I assure you!  I’ve been to Owen’s a few times and I usually get the same thing (some type of draft beer and something I probably should not be eating) however for the sake of reviewing purposes I thought I would mix it up for you.

Let’s start with the overall appearance and atmosphere of Owen’s.  I think the theme is clear with the Irish flag proudly displayed outside and the use of term “pub” instead of “bar.”  I also know that they do have a native Irishman working the bar.  You certainly get the feel for an Irish bar here at Owen’s.  They also cater to the community and are proud of it.  The back wall has an homage to North Wildwood and there are various North Wildwood photographs all over the place.  I truly respect the tribute that this establishment makes to the locals.  This cannot be a local’s Irish type of bar without having a place for the locals to go for their sports entertainment.  21 flat screens lined the walls of Owen’s.  It was no surprise that on a Thursday evening then that there were a limited number of bar stools and tables left.


A tribute to the locals
