Upcoming Events:

Blue Hen Beach Party

Saturday, July 21  |  3:00 – 6:00 p.m.

Bar Anticipation  |  703 16th Avenue, Belmar, NJ 07719

Cost: $11; cash bar

Blue waves, golden sand and blue and gold sunglasses… they’re all key to celebrating Blue Hen pride at the Jersey Shore!

The Northern New Jersey Alumni Club invites us to join them for the second annual Beach Party! You’ll enjoy great food, refreshing summer drinks, and—most importantly—people like you who cherish their Delaware connections.

Open to all ages of alumni and family, there will be an all-you-can eat BBQ (complete with salads, fixings and corn on the cob), live entertainment / DJ, emcee, contests, games and drink specials all day (21+). We want to bring together the NJ, NY and Philadelphia Regional Alumni Clubs and what better way than in the summer sun?

Come anytime between 3:00 and 6:00 and just look for the Delaware table for your wrist band to get all of the specials. Wear your UD gear and have fun mingling and networking. The event is rain or shine.

Getting There:
Take the Garden State Parkway to exit 98 and follow the signs for Rt. 138 east. Take Rt. 138 3-4 miles to the exit for Rt. 35 North, Belmar. At the end of the exit ramp, make a right turn onto 16th Avenue. Go through one traffic light and over railroad tracks. Bar Anticipation is on the right just past the tracks.

There is plenty of parking on site. NJTransit also is very close to Bar Anticipation.

Refund deadline is July 7, 2018. Registration closes July 17, 2018. Walk-ins are welcome, but will not be eligible for Blue Hen swag or entered in the raffle.
