I wanted to write up where the best place to get corn beef for St Pattys Day, but came to the conclusion, I make the best.
So here’s the recipe:
1- 4lb Corn Beef Brisket
12 oz bottle Guinness Stout (no substitutions)
1 packet of pickling spices (usually comes with the brisket)
1 head of cabbage
8 – 12 baby potatoes halved
salt & pepper
Put potatoes in the bottom of a large slow-cooker or crock pot. Rinse the corned beef brisket and place over vegetables fat side down. Add the bottle of stout, spices and enough water to almost over the meat. Cover and cook on LOW for eight hours.
Take out brisket and potatoes and cover with aluminum foil. Place cabbage (cut in quarters) in slow cooker and cook on high 20 to 30 minutes, until softened but still crispy.
Slice brisket across the grain, serve with vegetables & the rest of the Guinness.
Cost: Registration is $20.00 and includes a t-shirt, a pint of Guinness Beer and access to the Post-Race Party at Havana Tropical Cafe with complimentary appetizers and Guinness Beer.
The race will begin at Havana’s, 409 Bay Avenue, where contestants will fill their cup and race to Miller St., and back to the finish line at Havana’s. The contestant with the most liquid in their cup at the finish line, wins the 1st Place trophy and $100 in Bid Bucks. 2nd Place will receive a $50 Bid Buck.
What is a BID Buck? — No Idea.. I think the important take away here, is you get a Trophy and Guinness. Now if you got a trophy filled with Guinness even better.
For those of you not into running there is a Post-Run St. Pat’s Pub Crawl from 3PM-5PM, registration is $10.00 and includes a Highlands t-shirt and$3.00 Imported Beer specials at participating restaurants.
Friday night a Middletown teen was charged with driving while intoxicated, as well as eluding the police, refusal to submit to breath tests, reckless driving, leaving the scene of an accident, failure to report an accident, no headlights, failure to maintain lanes, unlicensed driver, unregistered vehicle and uninsured vehicle. She later was released with a pending court date. (I’m kind of wondering why there wasn’t a drinking underage tagged on..)
Let’s go over the mistakes this kid made:
Mistake #1: Getting drunk at 18 and getting behind the wheel of a car that’s not yours
Mistake #2: Deciding to go to Quick Chek after Mistake #1 and actually going in while an on duty PD was also in there
Mistake #3: When pulled over by PD that saw you in Quick Chek, as he’s walking toward the car take off through intersection
Mistake #4: Hit 3 park cars trying to escape
Mistake #5: Ditch the car, hide behind a house and pretend it never happened.
Luckily no one was seriously hurt, except for maybe the drivers ego. Hopefully this was a life lesson.

Sea Bright Mayor Dina Long wants college students to pass on the Ft Lauderdale beer festivities and come to the real Jersey Shore to get their hands dirty and shirt soaked in sweat (instead of beer), for a good cause.
Frustrated by Congressional foot-dragging and prospect of another six months before the town sees a dime of the Sandy Money, Long said it’s up to the town to rebuild itself. And to do so, she hopes to tap into the good will of people.
“We want to bring in groups of skilled volunteers that will hang Sheetrock, do subflooring, and do light carpentry.”
Kudos Mayor Long, Hopefully Highlands Mayor Nolan will follow in your footsteps. Or here’s an idea, Sea Bright gets the college students to help Highlands AND Sea Bright, & Highlands will supply the Beer & Pizza…
Last week the Chubby Pickle partnered with Carton Brewing to launch a benefit night for the staff of Twin Light Taphouse who have been out of work since the storm. At this event, the entire Twin Light Taphouse staff bartended and waited on customers at the Chubby Pickle and kept the proceeds. Carton Brewing helped with the efforts by releasing a couple of specialty beers only found at this event. One of the beers was appropriately named Sour Sandy.
