BAYONNE, NJ - After yet another successful Dine Out and Shop in Bayonne Friday, the public will get one more opportunity to get a taste of some of the city’s best foods in an outdoor setting. The city will host dinner out uptown on Thursday, Oct. 15 (with a rain date of Oct. 16) between 33rd and 38th Street from 5:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. Live music will be provided by Dave “Doc” Watson and Lisel Cox.
Councilman Gary LaPelusa said he was thrilled with the turnout and the weather at the Oct. 9 dine out and hopes the weather will hold out for Oct. 15 as well. “This is absolutely terrific,” LaPelusa said, as he made his way along the streets greeting people who had come out to dine.
While several eateries brought out heaters to keep patrons warm, these proved unnecessary as the temperatures remained mild well into the evening. Performances by Keith Borelli and Bennett Rhode even inspired some people to dance – although at least one couple danced even without the music.
Council President Sharon Ashe-Nadrowski who has spearheaded the initiative said the idea was to get people out again and to give some business to these restaurants and to give them a boost after most had been closed due to the COVID-10 pandemic.
In order to allow for event set-up, the street-closing on Broadway will start at 4:00 p.m. on Thursday and remain shut until 11:00 p.m. No parking will be allowed on Broadway in the outdoor dining area between 33rd and 38th Streets during this time.
