Gubernatorial Debate
It seems there wasn’t a whole lot of news in South Jersey yesterday beyond Stockton University’s hosting of the first debate among candidates for New Jersey Governor. There was a lot of Christie-bashing, which morphed into follow-up bashing of lead-candidate Phil Murphy’s ties to Wall Street. There was little in the way of new policy and there was broad agreement over funding schools and public pensions. Read The Philadelphia Inquirer’s take here and The Press of Atlantic City’s here.

AC Beer Garden
A plan to bring an open-air beer garden to Atlantic City (between the Ritz condominiums and California Ave) is a step closer to happening after CRDA’s planning officer recommended the project go ahead. The beer garden (which will also serve food) will be an offshoot of the next-door Bungalow bar and the Bungalow beach bar. The owners still have to go through the city’s licensing process and get permission to use a strip of the Boardwalk for additional space, but it could open this summer. Some demolition was already happening on the site when we went past yesterday. Read more here.

In the rest of the day’s news, Starbucks is coming to the Boardwalk soon – the sign is up, a hydroponic farm could move to Camden with tax breaks, NJ could become (officially) The Garden State,  and Rowan and Rutgers have launched a joint program for Alzheimer’s caregivers. All that and more below:
