Since 2006, Keenan’s in North Wildwood has been home to our Memorial Day Weekend broadcast officially opening the Jersey Shore.
The first year we visited Keenan’s, it was a quaint Irish Pub on the corner on New Jersey & Chestnut Ave, but over the years it’s come to take over the entire block! Just like Keenan’s, our show has grown out and upwards and inward… but only one of us has added a sushi bar.

There was the year we learned about Twerking.
How do you make a dunk tank more fun? Fill it with horse manure. Poor Intern Tom had no idea what he was getting into. (this stunt was retired immediately)
WARNING: When we ask volunteers to change into adult diapers, something crazy is going down their pants… like live lobsters or eels:
