What day and time is the car show? I didn't even know about it. The marina is 10 minutes away from Mon. Park. If you have time shoot down and I'll buy ya a beer at the dockside bar. To get to the marina you just get on Joline Ave and take it out to Ocean Ave., the marina is a couple miles north on Ocean Ave.

I have a BBQ to go to at 4 pm Saturday though.

The original "Benny" is the typical italian in a guinee-tee (aka wife-beaters) stereo-type. The term has been adopted for any person from the 4 boroughs of NY (for the most part, LI does not vacation on the Jersey Shore) and North Jersey that visit the Jersey Shore.

My grandfather (father's side) was a German Jew whose name was Benjamin and from Brooklyn, and never heard of them beinging referred to as a Benny. They usually vacationed in the Hamptons or other areas of Long Island. (Plus, back then, it was disrespectful to call him anything other than Ben or Benjamin. Benny was too Catholic Italian.) (Oh yeah, Grandma was Irish Catholic turned Born Again.)

My grandparents (mother's side) who are Polish Catholics also from Brooklyn, used to visit the Jersey Shore. That was when Keansburg was considered part of the Shore. But then again, they has Coney Island, so they didn't visit the Shore that much.

My wife is from Brooklyn 64St she moved to Staten Island when 9yrs old ... I'm from Clifton, met her in NYC at EF Hutton (are you listening) and we married and moved to SI, NY for 15yrs, I gained 75lbs with all the good food, had 2 kids, moved to Lanoka Harbor (paradise) in 1996, she hated it then, loves it now. I lost 15 of the 75 lbs and still trying We are all pretty much Bennys down here ... there are the few original Pineys though

Expensive Date:
I got arrested at the 72PCT in Brooklyn once ... long story involving a FAKE water gun on 278 / BQE ... it all worked out eventually thanks to my Dad-in-Law who is in the Defense Association and knows many top lawyers and a couple judges

That's my story and I'm sticking too it
Chris
