Friends With Benny Fits — Overcrowded Belmar Shuts Down to Outside Traffic
It seems Hoboken isn’t the only town in New Jersey that has been forced to repel invading hordes of outsiders…
Our good friends in the beautiful Borough of Belmar, New Jersey were forced to shut down inbound traffic for non-residents on Sunday, as the town had “reached its capacity.”
Belmar has reached it capacity and we are shutting down all traffic into town from Route 35 effective immediately.

Citing a “perfect storm of good things,” Mayor Matt Doherty said Belmar was simply too crowded—thanks primarily to the overwhelming success of the Belmar Seafood Festival.
Bottomline: Too many people want to be in New Jersey. Hey man, we get it…
Meanwhile here in Hoboken, we here at hMAG had fresh clams on the halfshell at Biggie’s Clam Bar, walked up to the St. Francis Church Ravioli Dinner, then stopped by Sinatra Park for some amazing live music, courtesy of Sinatra Idol and Swingadelic.

Then we made it home in time for Game of Thrones (SPOILER ALERT: Someone Dies), while you sat in shore traffic.
DTS, you say? Have fun with that…
