Goodbye, Wonder Bar
The Wonder Bar is closing its doors this weekend for the last time. After over 50 years of providing the area with good company, drinks, and music, it will be demolished by those loving Asbury Partners who have decided that a viable business which is loved by the community and supports the community is not as important as oceanfront condos.
A big Princess Bride booooo to Asbury Partners and their partners who don't understand that if you kill what makes a place special, you kill the place... All the slaps on the back to the local government officials won't bring back the spirit of Asbury Park.
I'm sorry Lance and Debbie, but Tillie dies yet again.

TODAY's Dance Competition
I usually don't participate in those TV contests... you know the kind "text 4 if you want Clay," "choose the one you want for the yet-again revived Grease" BUT...
This week, the members of Today's fourth hour (you know the one that kicked Martha to the afternoon) were having a dance-off. You are supposed to pick the best dancer but it's not like everyone was doing the same choreography. Everyone had a different dance to do...Natalie Morales: Tango; Tiki Barber: Cha Cha; Ann Curry: Hip-Hop; Hoda Kotb: Two-Step
Wait... Who's Hoda's instructor and where is she learning how to Two-Step? That's Robert Royston at the Colorado Cafe! Hmmmm... someone who I've danced with (when he was partnered with Laureen Baldovi) at my ol' dance haunt?! I have to vote! Fingers crossed for Hoda.
PS: Yes, I know... you think the Two-Step is not "quick quick slow slow," but "slow slow quick quick" I say get a life. Within 15 seconds, you're doing the same thing.
