The first annual Boujee-FoodieCon is about to blow the minds of food lovers in Monmouth County. The food festival will feature big-name restaurants and specialty vendors like The Butcher’s Block and Masha Moro: World’s Famous Caviar

Boujee-FoodieCon will be held at Fort Monmouth, a retired military base in Oceanport, New Jersey. Sponsored by Ketel One Vodka, the elevated street food festival will also be hosting carnival games, face painting, craft beer, live music, and a live DJ.

Tickets for the event can be found here and will be linked below. Children under the age of 10 years old are free. The event will run next weekend, Saturday and Sunday, 3 and 4 June. On Saturday 3 June, the festival will run from 11 am until 9 pm. On Sunday 4 June, the festival will run from 11 am until 7 pm. About forty restaurants and vendors have confirmed they’ll be there, but not all of them will be at the festival for both days, be sure to check the vendor list and find out which days the ones you’ll want to see will be there.

If you have seen the list of restaurants and specialty shops that will be appearing at the festival, then you’ll know why this festival is so cool. Restaurants with reservation waitlists, vendors with world-renowned dishes, artisanal coffee, bouquet-making workshops, highly sought-after sweets, and so many other well-known names in New Jersey will be at the same place, at the same time, doing what they do best! So RUN, don’t walk to get tickets before they’re gone. 

The festival has been a dream event for Renee Lam-Whiteman and Melanie Carpenter. Next weekend, after a year of planning and hard work, Monmouth County’s most exciting food festival of the summer will be here! A ticket giveaway is being held by none other than Monmouth’s most respected food critic, Beach Babe Bites (Meg Galgano – who will also be judging the ‘Best Bite’ food contest!)

The ticket giveaway can be found on Instagram (linked below) and will end at midnight Wednesday (31 May 2023.)

Residents In New Jersey Urged To Stay Indoors During Spraying Of Toxic Chemicals

Residents in Central New Jersey are being asked to stay indoors on Thursday, 7 September (today,) and Monday, 11 September, due to the release of toxic chemicals in an attempt to mitigate a mosquito crisis in the region. The Mosquito Extermination Commission of Middlesex County announced the use of the chemicals Prallethrin (Sumithrin), Deltamethrin (DeltaGard), Malathion (Fyfanon), and Etofenprox (Zenivex) in the communities of Old Bridge, Monroe, East Brunswick, Helmetta, and Spotswood. The Mosquito Extermination Commission says, “Plan your activities to limit time spent outside during times of possible insecticide treatments. Move your pets, their food, and water dishes inside during application. Also, bring clothing and children’s toys inside. Whenever possible, remain indoors with windows closed and with window air conditioners on non-vent (closed to the outside air) and window fans turned off during spraying. Avoid direct contact with surfaces that are still wet from pesticide spraying. Do not allow children to play in areas that have been sprayed until they have completely dried (approximately one hour.)” Weather permitting, the spraying will be performed between 6:30 PM and midnight. If it rains on 11 September, the county has scheduled the procedure for the following day. The Mosquito Extermination Commission further outlines, “If you must remain outdoors, avoid eye and skin contact with the spray. If you get spray in your eyes or on your skin, immediately flush and rinse with water. Consult your doctor if you think you are experiencing health effects from the spraying. People who suffer from chemical sensitivities or feel spraying may aggravate a preexisting health condition may consult their physician or local health department.” More information regarding plans to spray for mosquitos can be found here:
