When Superstorm Sandy hit the east coast last October, many people in the New York City area were skeptical as to whether or not the Jersey Shore would be up and running in time for the summer. Though much of the seaside attractions and boardwalks were severely damaged, many coastal towns have made speedy recoveries and are back in business. Amidst the weekly fireworks and bar festivities, here are just a few events and attractions to keep you entertained this summer.
One of the best ways to enjoy summer nights is busting a gut with your friends at a comedy club. New York City is sprinkled with great comedy clubs such as Gotham and Caroline’s, and New Jersey is home to Uncle Vinnie’s Comedy Club in Point Pleasant, but if none of their acts tickle your funny bone, check out these more well-known comedians.
