Shore area movers and shakers will be gathering under a big tent at historic Fort Hancock at Sandy Hook on Monday, June 9th for entertainment and seafood specialties from 20 local restaurants.

"Everything from lobsters, to oysters, scallops; whatever you can imagine and Jersey Fresh. Doesn't that make it special?" JSP Executive Director Margo Walsh said.

Walsh explained that it's a time for members of the environmental, business and political communities to network under the stars as they continue to advocate for beach protection.
