Oktoberfest in Asbury Park and 8 other things to do at the Jersey Shore this weekend

Asia's Tech News Daily

With Halloween just around the corner, we’ll soon be bidding October adieu to welcome even chillier nights and possibly some, dare we say it, snow.

Before that happens, there are tons of things to do this weekend at the Jersey Shore, including fall festivals, music and special menu releases. 

One way to truly authenticate this season before it ends is to break out the lederhosen because it’s Oktoberfest time.

Jingleheimer, a North Jersey group with plenty of oompah, will play for free at 9 p.m. Friday at the Asbury Park Yacht Club on the Asbury Park Boardwalk. Jingleheimer specializes in German polkas, waltzes and marches, so grab a stein and have a good time.

Hoofy Fall Festival coming to Barnegat

Who is Hoofy, you’re probably asking, and why does he have his own festival?

Hoofy was the nickname of Alex Hoffman, a patrolman with the Barnegat Township Police Department who died in 2019. In his memory, Barnegat PBA 296 created the festival to support the Alex Hoffman Memorial Scholarship Fund, which benefits high school students in the township. 

The festival will take place from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday at 11 Birdsall St. There will be food trucks, beer tasting, live music, children’s activities, craft vendors and fire pits, concluding with an outdoor showing of “Hocus Pocus.”

The cost is $10. Children are admitted free. 

For more information, visit the PBA’s Facebook page.

For history buffs and fine liquor aficionados alike, 618 Restaurant in Freehold has launched a Speakeasy Cocktail Menu, inspired by prohibition in the 1920s.

While this new menu is available online, guests who visit in person will be let in on the little secret when sitting at the bar only: They will be dealt a playing card that features a QR code menu.

Visitors will get the chance to try a variety of prohibition-era cocktails, including the Jack Rose, which is presented in a bird-shaped glass and made with Laird’s Applejack, lime, pomegranate and grenadine. 

Those interested in taking a friend can also enjoy group cocktails, big enough to serve several at a time. The Tea, which is served in a teapot for two, uses Real McCoy 3 year Rum, lime, Curoçao, Orgeat, cucumbers and mint. 

The “Guava Lava,” which is blanketed with smoke creating an eruptive illusion, serves six and features Tanteo Chipotle Tequila, guava, lime and agave.

To check out the entire menu or to get more information, visit 618nj.com/speakeasy or call 732-577-0001.

Birria tacos in Belmar

About a year ago, Los Barbaros Birria became known for its birria tacos, quesabirrias, mulitas and tortugas, served out of Asbury Park’s Mayan Restaurant only on Sundays. 

At the time, the birrieria was one of only a few around making the popular dipping taco, a Tijuana take on a meat stew from the western state of Jalisco in Mexico. Birria has since exploded, and last weekend, Los Barbaros Birria opened in Belmar. 

The restaurant is at 1110 Main St. in the space previously occupied by Cielito Lindo (Los Barbaros Birria will no longer be offered at Mayan Restaurant). In addition to the dishes mentioned above, diners will find noodle birria (think ramen meets birria tacos) and agua frescas in flavors like sandiaplayera (watermelon) and peoiloco (cucumber with chamoy, a condiment of pickled sour fruit).

For more information, call 848-404-9041 or visit losbarbarosbirria.com.
