I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Where-To-Go Wednesday - The Decade That Rocked the Photography of Mark Weissguy Weiss

The Decade That Rocked The Photography of Mark Weissguy Weiss

Where: Monmouth Museum
             765 Newman Springs Rd.
             Lincroft, NJ

Who: All ages

When: Through November 1, 2020

Mark WeissGuy Weiss is a photographer known for his rock music related pictures. He has had the opportunity to photograph many of the icons of rock; some of them more than once. His  work is currently on display in an exhibit at the Monmouth Museum in Lincroft, New Jersey. Whether you are a big fan of rock music or not you can still enjoy this fascinating exhibit. It is not only about the music. It is about reliving a period of history. While it is easy to get engrossed in looking at the photographs in the exhibit, it is also interesting to read Mark's recollection of those times and find out interesting inside information about how certain album covers came to be created and more. If you are of a certain age, it will bring back memories of your own life even if they are not directly related to the music. If you are a fan of Jon Bon Jovi or the late guitar great, Eddie Van Halen, you will really love this exhibit as there are plenty of pictures of each of them. No matter if this exhibit is a nostalgia trip for you or if you just want to get a glimpse at a little bit of rock history that you wish you could have been a part of or even if you are not that familiar with the music and/or the time period at all, this is an exhibit worth seeing.

The Monmouth Musem is open daily except for Mondays. If you visit on a Friday between 2:00 PM and 5:00 PM, you may even get to meet Mark Weiss himself. However, no matter when you are planning to visit, reservations must be made in advance on the museum's website although the $10 per person fee is payable when you arrive. Mask-wearing and social distancing are required. For more information or to make a reservation, visit https://monmouthmuseum.org/

And that's our view. Tune in tomorrow for Theater Thursday.
