Yeah, the pizza around here is great. Expensive during the summer, but great. I can't remember the last time I actually ate something on the beach--the one I go to doesn't allow food on it, to keep it clean. You leave your cooler or what have you up by the badge checkers.

One thing I used to look forward to down at the shore, was the boardwalk pizza. mmm.

I think I was afraid of eating anything on the beach after getting sand in my...sandwich.

See, I consider New Brunswick central. However, I have friends in N. Jersey that consider NB South. Ahh, so confusing! lol.

Unsurprisingly, this topic of conversation comes up frequently among my friends and I.

Should I ever decide to step foot on a beach I will make sure that I never bring my lunch in a shoebox! (People really did that? Strange)

Yeah, Manasquan is a few minutes from me. It's definitely central. I actually think Manasquan was my high school's rival, though I may be wrong since I never payed much attention.

Ahh, so Shoobees are from Philly, huh? Bennys are from the NYC area--Bayonne, Elizabeth, Newark, New York. I have heard that Shoobees used to bring lunch in shoe boxes, though. Interesting.

Rutgers as central or north? Hmm. I should check with my wife, who I see as an expert on all matters concerning north versus central Jersey. (She grew up in Manasquan, which I think would qualify as dead center.)

If I remember right, shoobee may come from their supposed habit of bringing their lunch in shoe boxes, but I'm not sure.

Pariahjane, I don't think you'd qualify as a shoobee since you aren't from Philly, so you can rest easy!

You're near Rutgers, New Brunswick? I consider that North Jersey.
Comment by Lauren on July 21, 2008 at 1:33pm
Haha, ok, good to know. Also, try not to bring everything you own to the beach. That's a dead giveaway.
Really, though, come visit...we'll gladly take your money. =P

Ahh, I see now. I don't make it down the shore very often, obviously. lol. But if I do then I'll make sure to remove my shoes before I go on the beach. :)

Shoobees, like Bennys, are the tourists who invade the Jersey Shore every year. As I understand it (and I may be wrong, so correct me if I am, Mike) they're called Shoobees because they wear their shoes on the beach. Or that's how it started.

Central Jersey does exist because that's where I live, lol. I'm near Rutgers U.

What the hell is a shoobee? :)
