Red Bank Flavour, the culinary alliance responsible for such notable, borough-wide events as Holiday Flavour, Night on the Navesink and Party on the Promenade, announced plans to host the first-ever “Sippin’ on the River” event. Slated for June 29 and 30, the inaugural festival will be held at Red Bank’s riverfront Marine Park and boast culinary samplings from the borough’s finest eateries, as well as wine, beer, live music and more.

More than a dozen restaurants will present a smorgasbord of summer samplings – from sushi and lobster rolls, to Jersey beer and wines, fresh squeezed lemonade, homemade chocolates and more,” commented George Lyristis, owner of Teak Restaurant and The Bistro at Red Bank.
