Mel knows meat. That’s why his Ernest & Sons Meat Market in Brigantine was featured on FOOD NETWORK’s Diners, Drive-ins & Dives TV show. Owner and bombastic butcher; Mel Cortellessa, is the man making the sausage with host Guy Fieri. Ernest and Son was started in 1977 by Ernest Storino
Big, ugly, but somewhat understandable changes for those that enjoy 4X4 surf fishing on Brigantine’s North End. The DEP and Department of Fish & Wildlife will be taking over a majority of these beaches and wildlife areas just north of the seawall. Brigantine will still have access to 1500 ft.
Killing off another Brigantine business to build more un-needed homes? To those who rely on a robust business community, it does look that way. This time, the take down target is Brigantine Auto on the busy lighthouse circle. Take-down tool being employed by City of Brigantine: force small business owner
Letter to the Editor, from Gary Shea of Brigantine > Now that summer is over, I would imagine that the residents of Brigantine will start thinking about the upcoming Eagles season and of course, the upcoming local elections. I hope our local candidates will not turn this year’s ‘silly season’ into

Brigantine is talking: Convenient, yet harmful single-use plastic bags. Mayor Guenther suggests that plastic bag laws could hurt business. The ACME may be forced to leave town if a symbolic 10 cent fee is charged for each plastic bag. We kid you not. That’s what our Mayor implied. Listen here >
Brigantine, for far too long, has suffered from a serious lack of proper marketing, promotion and awareness.

Some Brigantine leadership publicly dragged JAWORSKI GOLF through the mud and then said ‘no thanks…..we got this covered’. Could they be having second thoughts about blowing off a deal with JAWS? Today, as unknown losses mount at The Links, Brigantine is watching from the sidelines as Jaworski Golf keeps expanding
