RIP Mark


I am heart broken to let people know that Mark La Mura passed away today after a long, strong fight with cancer.  He was a great actor staring as Mark Dalton on All My Children, Broadway, TV and Movies.  He is survived by his wife Liz, his daughter Gabrielle and the La Mura Family.  He was 69 and my best friend for 49 years.  I will miss him immensely.

The Tipping Point on Parking

The Tipping Point of Parking

by Daniel Murphy Jr.

      Red Bank has be “working” on the parking problem for at least the last 25 years and I have been writing, having meetings, and going before the town counsel for just about the same amount of years.  The need for parking signs, directions, a parking garage, promoting the parking garages we have and a litany of additional items such as maps and apps for digial directions have been needed.  The powers that have somehow avoided working on the crisis of parking that is embarking on the downtown district and about to start in the Arts and Antique/Theater district also.

For the last 10 years, customers and theater goer’s have driven in circles looking for a place to park downtown.   With more and more restaurants being allowed to open with no parking plan, we are reaching the “Tipping Point” where Red Bank could become itself a clogged town of cars looking for a place to park.

One example of this is the opening of Red Rock being allowed to have 3 to 4  times the original seating for that site; Marine Park is now full from 11 am to 1 am with their customers and staff. Red Rock is a great addition to Red Bank and beautifully done but now Boondocks and Irwins Marina have no parking for customers, boaters or people that want to enjoy Marine Park. This is the example of the Tipping Point where the number of cars far outnumber the parking spaces.

There are places to park but without signage or directions, the out of town people can not find them.  Bottom line is if you read the last edition of the Tri City News, whether they’re totally accurate, this is how many people view what is going on with our town.

New Year, New Changes

Danny’s Steakhouse
(( Adding a new direction to our ever evolving restaurant and menu ))

On March 1st, we will be debuting a new dining experience featuring a menu with traditional and fast-casual food items.

Danny’s is gearing up to be the “go to” restaurant & steakhouse in New Jersey for healthy dining, featuring New Zealand grass fed steaks, rack of lamb, pork ,and free range chicken.  All of which have been pastured raised from New Zealand.

With many customers, including myself, changing our eating habits and diet, it is time for Danny’s to change our menu, as we have done multiple times over the past 48 years.

With the growing trend of people dining out more often but not wanting to spend over $50 for two, we are also going to refine our menu. It will meet the demands of our present and new customers featuring a scaled down menu with items that allow you to dine out within any budget you set.

More to come..
Danny Murphy Jr.
