As we get closer to the ride, we’ll be checking in with the brave and intrepid riders on our BikeMS: City to Shore team. This week, we’ll be meeting a BikeMS: City to Shore rookie — Jim Fox.
Welcome him to the team!
As we get closer to the ride, we’ll be checking in with the brave and intrepid riders on our BikeMS: City to Shore team. This week, we’ll be meeting our BikeMS: City to Shore team captain — Steve Briggs.
Steve is a six-year veteran of the team, leading us in the ride for the past four years. He works his butt off every year, working with both the brewery and BikeMS to make the event as successful as possible.
So, you’ve decided to join our BikeMS: City to Shore team.
That makes you awesome.
Yet, you’re — understandably — not sure what to expect. You’re not entirely sure what equipment you need to buy or how to prepare — mentally and physically — for riding a hundred miles.
So, we tracked down some of our veterans of the ride — guys who’ve been doing it for nearly a decade as well as those for whom last year was their first. They had some great insider tips — things you may not have ever considered — and things those quote-unquote “professional” sites might not tell you.
“I just felt like running.”
While most of us don’t have the running inclination that Forrest Gump had — he really felt like running — but for the rest of us, those of us who only want to run, say, 13.1 miles, the Cape May Running Company is there for you.
Cape May Running Company is the premier source for all things running-related in Cape May County. They’ve been serving the area’s runners at their storefront in downtown Cape May since last May, offering gear, support, and coaching.
And this summer, we’ve joined forces to sponsor the races held by Cape May Running Company, including the Murph Mile and the Hallowed Half.
The big news in South Jersey over the past few months has been the simultaneous opening of two new casinos in Atlantic City. The Hard Rock and the Ocean Resort opened July 3rd, bringing some 6,000 new jobs with them.
Thankfully, several of those jobs involve saying “yes” to our intrepid South Jersey Sales Manager, Richie Rallo, when he says, “Hey. You wanna carry some Cape May brews?”
(And then he works his butt off to make it happen.)
While many of the restaurants in both casinos are still in their opening stages, Richie was kind enough to host the staff at Straight to the Pint for a visit, checking out the venues where you’ll be able to find our brews.
There are a million things to do on a trip “down the shore,” — Morey’s Pier, our stellar beaches, walks on some of the best boardwalks in the country, just to name a few.
Those things are all well and good — we love them, too! — but if you want to get a taste of the real Cape May, you’ve got to pack up your things at the beach and head inland.
Preferably to Cape May Brewing Company.
Not only do we have a wide variety of great beers, we’ve also got some of the best brewery tours in the business. So, come rain or come shine, every day is the perfect day to take a tour of Cape May Brewing Company, and we’ve got five reasons why you should.
Summer brings all kinds of wonderful things to Cape May. Our treasured visitors… Glorious beach days… The Bog….
With all of the visitors and beach days — and, of course, The Bog — CMBC has a bunch of new swag. And, this summer, we’ve got a great new space at the West End Garage at 484 Perry Street in downtown Cape May to display it all.
Nestled far from the busy summer crowd in Cape May, away from the hustle and the bustle of Washington Street, sequestered from the throngs of humanity on Beach Avenue lay a favorite of the locals, denoted only by an easily-missed sign on Lafayette Street.
Mayer’s Tavern. Long a fixture as a “dive bar” in the area, it had been closed for several years before the lauded Laudeman family snatched it up. Longtime owners of The Lobster House, the newest Laudeman restaurant sits across the street and back one block at 894 3rd Ave.
We got together with owner and head chef Alex Laudeman to get the lowdown on this diamond in the rough.
If you’ve lived in the South Jersey/Eastern Pennsylvania area over the past twenty years or so, there’s a name you’ve come to recognize, synonymous with good food, friendly service, and a killer beer selection.
P.J. Whelihan’s — with twenty-two locations, including The Pour House, The ChopHouse, and Treno Pizza Bar — has made a name for itself through a very simple and time-tested method: remaining true to its ideals.
Last year, we paired up with the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts and Humanities and the non-profit arm of the Exit Zero Jazz Festival, Music Connects, to participate in their summertime Pop-Up Beer Gardens.
Those three were so much fun that they’ve asked us to help out with them again this year. MAC has three planned — the first on July 12th –, and Exit Zero Jazz Festival has one planned in August.
And they’re all supporting great causes!
