The stunt Welle pulled in Rumson last weekend is downright bizarre. He held a party in his neighbor’s backyard without her permission.

Murphy’s Tavern and Val’s Tavern in Rumson are likely to have a better night on Thursday than Tommy’s Tavern and Tap Room and Woody’s Grille in Sea Bright due to the fact that the Rumson-Sea Bright Bridge (S-32) will close for maintenance at 8 p.m. The bridge will reopen at 6 a.m. on Friday morning.
Uber drivers are advised that the best route to Sea Bright from Rumson is via the Oceanic Bridge into Middletown, right onto Locust Point Road and right on Locust Ave over the bridge to Navesink Ave (by the brick church). Make a right on Navesink and another right on Route 36 in Highlands. Take Route 36 over the Capt Joe Azzolina Bridge and you’re in Sea Bright.
