Really not that long, but it has been 17 years since the Cicadas last emerged from their sex deprived hibernation. This Saturday, we celebrate their return with new works by Kayt Hester at Port-O Lounge. Opening starts at 9 pm. I've got the DJ reins after 10 pm..
Earlier on that Saturday, the JC Olympics continues with sports 3 and 4 of the Sex-Tathalon with Dodgeball and Shuffleboard at noon. We'll be at the Skate Park at Enus Jones Field [Pavonia and Brunswick St.'s] at noon setting up. First games are at 1 pm. So far we've raised about $300 for the JC Recreation Foundation. Sadly, WE would have raised more money, but the Mayor beats us at the Belmar Chase 5K two weeks ago, plus a bunch of us we're drinking at that time and unable to participate.
On Sunday, a fundraiser that is guaranteed to get you soaked takes place at the Boys and Girls club on Sunday Aug 25th.
