Hi everyone! 

I know, I know, it’s hard to believe.. but I’m flying to the one and only NEW JERSEY (:D) tomorrow! This will be the 3rd year in a row that I’ll be in America for my birthday, and I guess I’ve gotta keep up the tradition. 

I was actually very close to not going this year, finally due to lack of funds... but because last years birthday was so amazing, I couldn’t bear the thought of being sat at home feeling sad and nostalgic. I know I’m going to be a bit sad this year anyway, because sadly, I won’t be front row for Bruce Springsteen again (can you believe it’s a year since the pick :(), however I do have some really exciting things to look forward to and share with you all. 

One of my friends who has never been to New York before has been saying to me for a while ‘next time you go, I wanna come with you’, and so I couldn’t let her down, right?! I’ll be playing tour guide once again! We have 4 nights in New York City, being the best tourists we can be before heading down the shore on Saturday and returning to my beloved home away from home, Asbury Park for a couple of nights. 

When looking to see if a trip this year was even possible, I was thinking to myself.. I don’t even have an excuse such as Broadway, so should I really go? And just like that things fell into place and now we have so much to look forward to. I turn 22 next Sunday (struggling to come to terms with this yes) and it just so happens that the Bruce Springsteen: My Hometown Exhibit opens on that very day. I’ll finally be going back to Freehold!! I haven’t been to Freehold since my very first trip back in March 2017, and I’m so excited. Plus @MadamMarie  and hopefully @rosiejaneymary will be coming with me! Then the same night, I’ve got tickets to a charity event at The Stone freaking Pony featuring none other than... Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, Bobby Bandiera, Gary US Bonds & Vini Lopez! It’s literally like all of my Jersey Shore dreams are coming true. I’m so so SO excited. 

So if it’s alright with you all, I’ll be posting some more photos/recommendations/information while I’m there, and taking you all along with me. I’ll be doing literally everything there is to see Bruce wise in Asbury & Freehold, as Rea really wants to see all the sights. Plus I know that the new album coming out etc has brought some new members here so I’m hoping my thread will help again!

It’s going to be a really good week and I can’t wait to be back ‘home’!

Have a great trip Rachel. Looking forward to the reports as usual. The Stone Pony gig sounds awesome.

We're hoping and praying that there will be a tour next year and that we can see Bruce in Jersey again and spend some time in Asbury Park.

Hope you have (another) wonderful trip / time and your friend has a blast in NYC! Fingers crossed for maybe a "special" surprise at the Pony (you never know - he may want to make the point that "just because I'm 70 now...……..!!?" - and feel like he owes Southside some payback this summer!?).  ENJOY!!!

It's a given.  No, I'm not even taking bets.  You heard it here first.
