Puzzle Out: Jersey City  |  317 Grove Street, Jersey City, NJ 07302

Blue Hen Beach Party

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!

Join us for our 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.
