Jersey Shore for winter visitors: Not like the MTV show
By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS (CP) – Dec 9, 2009
RED BANK, N.J. — It’s not summertime and it’s nothing like the MTV reality show.
But the Jersey Shore does offer plenty to do for visitors this time of year: Main Street shopping, outlet malls and holiday activities.
Jersey Shore Premium Outlets in Tinton Falls and Jackson Premium Outlets in Jackson both have bus departures from Manhattan’s Port Authority and NJ Transit stops. For Main Street shopping, check out Cookman Avenue in Asbury Park and the downtowns of Ocean Grove, Toms River, Spring Lake, and Red Bank. For antiques, hit Point Pleasant Beach for the Antique Emporium, Fond Memories Antiques and Canvas House Antiques.
To make a weekend out of it, boutique hotels include Blue Bay Inn in Atlantic Highlands, the Victorian style Majestic B&B in Ocean Grove, and the Oyster Point and Molly Pitcher Inn in Red Bank. The outlet malls also have shop and stay deals with over two dozen area hotels; details at http://www.premiumoutlets.com. Hotels Unlimited is offering special holiday rates for corporate, military and leisure travellers at the Ramada of Toms River and The Holiday Inn of Toms River.
While you’re in the area, check out the Red Bank Gingerbread Walk, through Dec. 23, with gingerbread creations on display at 14 local businesses. The PNC Bank Arts Center Holiday Light Spectacular is a drive-through show with 225 displays. In Asbury Park, on Dec. 23, participating restaurants offer a 6:30 p.m. prix fixe dinner with a ticket to catch a showing of “It’s a Wonderful Life” at the Paramount, or just come to the show and pay US$5 at the door.

You decide if it’s offensive or not. (And yes, we realize this is strangely, sickly similar to the UPenn blog that broke down the Na’vi language from Avatar a few days ago.):
• The Jersey Shore n. 1. A 130-mile stretch of New Jersey coastline from Sandy Hook in the north to Cape May in the south. 2. A meeting ground where “Guidettes” [see entry] encounter tanned and muscular “Guidos” [see entry] at nightclubs for dancing and making out before returning to the Jacuzzi [see entry]. Also: The Shore.
• Hair, Men Hair is usually worn short (buzzer attachment No. 2 on the sides and No. 3 on top) with the edges well defined along the hairline. For slightly longer hair (cf Pauly D. and Ronnie), a regimen of hair care involving a brush, a blow-dryer, two hours and a strong hair gel is needed. Styles include the duck-spined faux hawk, sported by Ronnie, and the Malignaggi, a style in which the hair lies like a mesa above the brow, made popular by the boxer Paulie Malignaggi.
• Hair, Women During the day, hair is usually worn long and straightened, often dyed black or highlighted. At night, a high “pouf” is obligatory.
• Guido [m], Guidette [f], n. Originally an ethnic slur against Italian immigrants to America, since Guido was a common Italian Christian name (cf the Florentine poet Guido Cavalcanti, the Benedictine music theorist Guido d’Arezzo, the graphic artist Guido Silvestri), the term has been reappropriated, Judith Butler-style, by some Italian-Americans along the Jersey Shore [see entry] and now refers to a complex of aesthetic and moral choices made by young Italian-Americans. Among the values espoused by the self-described “Guidos” of “Jersey Shore”: heavy tanning, muscular definition, a labor-intensive toiletry regimen, family and hooking up.
