Rumson’s ‘Wearing of the Green’ Set for March 10

February 27, 2013 5:21 pm

By John Burton

Original article at: The Two River Times

RUMSON – “You want Irish? Rumson’s got Irish. You want green? Rumson’s got green,” said Rumson resident Pete Hogan. Hogan is one of about 16 who have been actively working for about a year to establish a St. Patrick’s Day parade, which is now slated for Sunday, March 10.

But before the bagpipers, marching bands, floats and fire trucks take to the River Road route, organizers are still working on raising money and other facets of the celebration.

Hogan said he and other members of the parade committee wanted to have more than just a parade, so they have developed a series of events to have a “sense of the green” in the borough.

The appreciation of all things Irish begins Friday, March 1, when organizers will join the community for a green-tree lighting in Victory Park, East River Road. The parade’s grand marshal, restaurateur and Holiday Express head,

Tim McLoone, will throw the switch, lighting the park’s usual holiday tree that will be decorated with green lights.

Organizers have been and still are selling strings of decorative green lights for residents and businesses to use on their own trees along the parade route, a route Hogan calls “The Great Green Way.”

The lights, which go for $10 a box of 100 lights on a 20-foot strand, is also a fundraiser for the parade organization, Hogan said.

The lights can be purchased at Rumson Market, Bain’s Outdoor Living and at the Rumson office of Heritage House Sotheby’s International Realty.

Local businesses Atlantic Bagels, Coffee Corral and Cups and Cakes (in Red Bank), have donated refreshments for the night of the tree lighting.

A fundraising and thank you party has been slated for Salt Creek Grille, 4 Bingham Ave., on Feb. 26. Tickets are being sold for $50 per person, Hogan said.

The parade will start at 1 p.m. in the area of the borough’s Victory Park and continue along River Road to the vicinity of Molly Maguire’s Black Point Inn and Val’s Tavern, toward River Road’s eastern end.

There will be grandstands set up along the route and, Hogan said, there are plans to feature “Sandy Heroes” to honor those “who went above and beyond” following the late October storm.

Heading the parade will be a “brigade of bulldogs,” with Hogan rounding up owners to get the dogs decked out and ready to spearhead the procession.

Original plans had been more ambitious, Hogan said. “We wanted to offer another aspect – the heritage, the culture, the tradition – along with the parade.”

Organizers initially intended to work with the local schools, the public library and businesses to offer a variety of cultural events, highlighting Ireland’s historical, musical and literary influences. However, “Sandy really put us back,” in addressing fundraising and organizing efforts, he said.

One of the events the organizers had to abandon this year but hope to have for the second annual event is what Hogan called the “jewel in the crown,” an Irish Mass at Holy Cross Roman Catholic Church. The plan for it had to be scrapped this year because the Ward Avenue church is undergoing renovations and extensive work.

Following Super Storm Sandy there were discussions about canceling the parade this year but organizers thought better of it. “We said in spite of Sandy, this area, these people, need a parade,” and a day of fun, Hogan said.

Irish Tradition Takes Root Sundays in Rumson

February 27, 2013 5:13 pm

By John Burton

Original article at: The Two River Times

RUMSON – Twice a month on Sundays musicians have a chance to play the music they love but may not often get the opportunity while pub patrons get a chance to revel – and maybe dance a little – to the music of their Irish heritage.

Molly Maguire’s Black Point Inn, 132 East River Road, has been getting musicians together for the first and third Sundays for the last eight months or so for a very Irish tradition, the musical session.

That’s where those playing a variety of instruments – fiddle, mandolin, flute, guitar, among others – come and sit in to play the instrumentals, steeped in the centuries-old Emerald Isle heritage.

Musicians come together at Rumson’s Molly McGuire’s for the bi-monthly session of traditional Irish music.

Musicians come together at Rumson’s Molly McGuire’s for the bi-monthly session of traditional Irish music.

Mike Maguire, who has owned the pub and restaurant for about a year-and-a-half, said he’s been enjoying the sessions. “It’s fun, it’s nostalgia,” he said, noting his own heritage is two generations removed from his Irish roots.

“I think there is some responsibility on our part as an Irish pub to continue this,” he said. “It’s a connection to culture and where we’re from.”

The sessions feature anywhere from six to 20 musicians who play between 6 to 9 p.m., performing a variety of eclectic numbers, some dating back for hundreds of years, according Maguire and Bob Pfeffer, who organizes the events.

“It’s a real folk music. It’s soothing. It’s relaxing,” Maguire said.

“I don’t know if that means I’m getting older, but I like to hear it and relax on a Sunday night.”

“I love it,” Pfeffer said of the traditional Irish folk tunes. “It’s great music. It’s so much fun to play.”

For Pfeffer, who is not Irish, the attraction is that it’s dance music. He acknowledged the joy he gets when people start taking to the floor as he and others start ripping it up with such standards as “Garryowen,” a well-known and popular tune.

During a recent Sunday, some were making their way to an open floor area, including young children who were stepping lively.

The practice of sessions, which has lived on for ages, had somewhat fallen out of favor in the U.S. and elsewhere by the 1940s and ‘50s, but has seen a resurgence during the last couple of decades, according to Pfeffer.

“Now there are thousands and thousands of people playing,” and not just in Ireland and America, but even in places like Greece, he said.

Pfeffer, who lives in Ocean Township, said his email blast has brought musicians from all over this part of the state traveling to Molly Maguire’s to partake.

Some musicians have been known to play for hours during sessions conducted around the world. “I was in Ireland when they started a session at 9 o’clock [p.m.] and continued to the next morning,” he said.

Pfeffer has been playing the fiddle for more than 40 years. It’s not the violin, he stressed. “It’s actually the same instrument,” he conceded, adding, “It depends on how you play it. If you play classical, you call it a violin.”

Odhran King, an 11-year-old from Atlantic Highlands, was sitting in playing the bodhran, a small-framed drum, easily carried. “It’s an important instrument,” Odhran said, “because it carries the beat in songs.”

“I think it’s great because it keeps him in touch with his Irish roots,” said Gail Woods, Odhran’s mother, revealing her lilting Irish brogue, carried from her home in Drumshanbo, in County Leitrim.

“It’s a chance to practice and connect with others interested in this music,” Woods said.

And, Odhran insists, he enjoys it.

“I like this music because it’s kind of original,” he said. “It’s not, like, computerized.”

The sessions are becoming increasingly popular, as the crowd grows with each gathering, Maguire said. Initially, spectators were “some groups of people who are friends of the musicians.” Now, he said, “there are these whole groups who’ve discovered and are bringing their friends to experience it.”

Molly Maguire’s, McLoone’s Tap into FU Sandy Brew

February 27, 2013 4:43 pm

Original article at: Rumson-Fair Haven Patch

Time for a pint-sized taste of FU.

Eighty-six and a half kegs of a special brew created by New Jersey’s Flying Fish Brewery, dedicated to Hurricane Sandy relief efforts,will be poured out of local taps, including Molly Maguire’s Blackpoint Inn in Rumson, beginning this weekend.

Called FU Sandy (the F U stands for Forever Unloved, of course), the hybrid white ale was made in part as a fundraiser for New Jersey storm relief efforts for Hurricane Sandy devastation. Flying Fish is hoping to raise $50,000 from the beer and merchandise sales.

Flying Fish first announced FU Sandy on Dec. 20, and now the list of where the beer is on tap is finalized, with places such as not only Molly Maguire’s, but McLoone’s restaurants in Sea Bright, Asbury Park and Long Branch making the list.

The brewery is Jersey through and through, creating several beers based around the New Jersey Turnpike exits, each with a nod toward the history of the area.

If you are hoping for a six pack, FU Sandy is only available on draft at a long list of places, many of which will be hosting “tapping parties” beginning Feb. 16. (Those marked with an asterisk on the list below.)

The brewer described the ale contents this way “brewed with a 50/50 blend of Two Row Pale Malt and American White Wheat. It is hopped with experimental hop ADHA 483, donated by the American Dwarf Hop Association, which has never been used in a beer before this one.

Muller and Head Brewer Casey Hughes expect a “beautiful, tropical nose of mangoes and guavas that will accentuate the beer’s soft mouthfeel and contribute to a truly one-of-a-kind ale.”

Where to grab a pint of FU Sandy this weekend? Here are the locations as of now. The list will be updated on Flying Fish’s website, here.

A Beer for Every Season at Molly Maguire’s

February 4, 2013 12:22 pm

Sierra Nevada BigfootA beer for every season. That is what the rich history of brewing teaches us, and it’s a spirit we like to embrace at Molly Maguire’s. Our craft beer-loving friends enjoy our ever-changing rotation of seasonal beers, and for good reason. Seasonal beers are an integral part of beer culture, the changing of the seasons, and enjoying life.

Winter’s cold weather has always brought with it a tradition of strong, warming beers such as strong stouts and barleywines. These beers were often brewed a year in advance and stored until winter, giving them time to mature into hearty beers for when the temperature drops. Modern brewers carry on that tradition with beers like Sierra Nevada’s Bigfoot and Founder’s Breakfast Stout.

In the spring and summer, beers become lighter and more approachable, dominated by refreshing wheat beers and other easy-drinking brews that originated as a way to keep farmers’ thirst quenched while working in the fields. Styles such as saisons, farmhouse ales, witbiers and wheat beers spring directly from this tradition.

For autumn, beers grow darker and maltier. Beers for October were often brewed in March, hence the actual name of the Oktoberfest style, Marzen, which means “March beer.” These filling but approachable beers were perfect for the autumn months and were great for pairing with robust autumn foods like grilled sausage – and they still are!

Then the cycle begins anew, with the slow sippers of winter once again becoming the beer for the season.

At Molly Maguire’s, we celebrate this long tradition of seasonal beers with our constantly rotating tap selection. Visit in February and you’ll see much different beers than you would in July.

Because after all, isn’t a beer for every season half the fun of enjoying great crafty brews? We certainly think so.

And when you come in for your craft beer, remember that we sell and fill growlers! Follow us on Facebook to see what we’re tapping.

Dead Bank Sets the Tone at Molly Maguire’s

November 15, 2012 8:20 pm

“Dead Head” or not, you’ve probably heard of a band called the Grateful Dead. With chart topping songs such as Uncle John’s Band, Ripple, Touch of Grey and Sugar Magnolia, the Grateful Dead continues to live in our hearts and minds as one of the greatest bands of the century. While the Grateful Dead might have gone their separate ways, we’re pleased to introduce a Red Bank local band, Dead Bank, who is making their sound come alive again at Molly Maguire’s in Rumson.

Before we get into Dead Bank, let’s dive into their predecessor’s past. The Grateful Dead was formed in 1965 by band members Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, “Pigpen” McKernan, Phil Lesh and Bill Kreutzmann. Their goal was to create a unique and eclectic sound with fused styles that could appeal to anyone. You might pick up on blues, bluegrass, country, folk, improvisational jazz, phychedelia, space rock, reggae and rock as you listen to their music. They are even known to the world as “The Pioneering Godfathers of The Jam Band World.” Now that’s impressive!

Throughout their career, the Grateful Dead accomplished more than anyone could have imagined. They were named one of the 100 Greatest Artists of All-Time by Rolling Stone Magazine, had concerts added to the Library of Congress’ National Recording Registry in 1977, got inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994 and even earned a prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2007 Grammy Awards! The band put out a total of 22 albums from 1967-1990 and still has a dedicated group of fans who refer to themselves as “Dead Heads.”

When the Grateful Dead went their separate ways, they opened room for bands with “Dead Head” members to take their place. That’s how we met Dead Bank. The band is made up of Jason LaViola, Jack Pyrah, Jim Willis, Nash Aliga and “Shadowman.” They describe themselves saying, “We are disseminators of Grateful Dead music with an edge—and edge that is sharp, but like a serrated knife.” The band has a unique sound that takes Grateful Dead music to a new level. If you haven’t checked them out at your favorite restaurant in Rumson, you’re definitely missing out!

Whether you’ve been a loyal “Dead Head” for years or you’re just getting into the sounds of the Grateful Dead and Dead Bank now, you’ll love enjoying the music right here at Molly Maguire’s. ‘Like’ us on Facebook to find out when Dead Bank will be here!


Fall into Autumn Beers and Cocktails

October 19, 2012 4:01 pm

Can you think of anything that says autumn like fall-flavored beers and cocktails? We can’t! We’re enjoying this season’s influx of pumpkin flavored brews and warming cocktails, and we wanted to give you a rundown of these fall beverages so you can join us for a drink at Molly Maguire’s Black Point Inn in Rumson!


Though we’ve recently experienced an explosion of pumpkin beers, this delicious fall treat was actually born in the Colonial era. Pumpkin brews had a quiet start, not becoming widely popular until the mid-80’s when Buffalo Bill’s started serving up a new take on the old drink. Since its revival, Buffalo Bill’s has had fierce competition in creating the season’s best pumpkin beer. There are many to try, so you’ll have to fill us in on your favorites!

While pumpkin flavored beer is a popular fall drink, there are a variety of other beers to enjoy throughout the season. Fall brews tend to be more flavorful than your go-to summer beer. You’ll notice deeper colors combined with a heartier, bold flavor. Fall’s popular beers include:

  • Belgian-Style Brown Ale
  • Pumpkin Ale
  • Dunkelweizen
  • Extra Special Bitter
  • Weizeneisbock
  • American Porter
  • American Brown Ale
  • Belgian Strong Pale Ale


If you prefer to sip a cocktail, fall is an excellent time to give a new drink a try. To stick with the essence of the season, people often choose drinks that are warming and feature your favorite fall flavors. Some of the more popular cocktails for the season are:

  • Spiked Apple Cider
  • Mulled Wine
  • Hot Apple Toddy
  • Hunter’s Cocktail
  • Manhattan
  • Pumpkin Martini

These drinks tend to be heartier and feature whiskey, which tends to have a more warming quality. Another option for fall is a classic scotch, another warming beverage.

With so many drink options to keep you in the fall spirit, it will be difficult to pick just one. Luckily, this Rumson restaurant has you covered! We’re serving up the best specials on your favorite fall drinks all season long. Stop by to see us and don’t forget to ‘Like’ us on Facebook to keep up with our great specials year-round.


A Brewery in our Backyard

September 28, 2012 8:09 pm

Wednesday night we hosted the Carton Brewery Beer Dinner featuring Carton beers created locally in Atlantic Highlands! We had a great time at our dinner last night. The food was delicious, and of course the beer was brewed to perfection. We are glad you all had a good time and enjoyed the night just as much. For those of you who weren’t able to attend, here is some great information about Carton Brewery. If you haven’t tried the beer, you’re missing out!

Who is Carton Brewing Company?

The company was formed by two cousins  – Chris and Augie Carton and a local brewer -  Jesse Ferguson. and started Carton Brewing. The cousins vision partnered with Jesse’s skills made the warehouse at 6 E. Washington Avenue into an independent craft brewery that you can’t pass up. Their goal: to make tasty beer in the place their tastes were formed in the shore community.

The Beer

The team brews up five different beers:

Boat Beer –  This brew is designed to be complex enough to enjoy a few while still being able to enjoy a few more! Kolsch It’s crisp and refreshing with a generous amount of American hops. The team describes this creation as an IPA for everyday drinking – drink boat beer when you are thirsty from softball, fishing, or explaining why your team is best.

077XX – An East Coast Double IPA named for the locality of the brewery, and the Jersey freshness it brings to beer loves, this brew  is inspired by a West Coast IPA with a variety of hops to add a dynamic East Coast profile.  This beer is available only in N.J.!

Red Eye Returning – A true journey home to New York, this brew consists of piney American hops, Simcoe, Cluster, and Horizon their natural course coaxed toward spicy by a touch of rye. You can grab up this delicious brew in New York only.

The team also makes Brunch. Dinner. Grub. and Carton of Milk. Which is your favorite? Come in to Molly Maguire’s Blackpoint Inn to get a glass! Let us know on our Facebook page. We look forward to doing another dinner with this great beer at our Rumson restaurant!


Overcoming Stage Fright for Open Mic Night

August 15, 2012 9:51 pm

Did you hear that Molly Maguire’s Black Point Inn in Rumson is starting an Open Mic Night every Tuesday? We’re sure we’ll have some great talent come through the doors, but we’re also sure we’ll miss out on some because of stage fright! Here are some tips for overcoming your stage fright so you can perform at one of our Open Mic Nights!

  • One of the most important things you can do is remember that not everyone is going to like you. Some people will love what you bring to the table and others won’t so much. The same goes for anything, so just relax and do you thing and some people will love you!
  • Let the music do the work. Try to remember that it’s not so much about you as it is the music you’re playing. Just forget about the fact that you’re up in front and play your music and let the music do the work.
  • Remember that mistakes make people human. When performing it’s important and likeable to be human. So, make all the mistakes you make and let it be part of you!
  • Lastly, and maybe most importantly, remember to breathe! Taking deep breaths is very calming and it’s not just something people say, it really works! So take a deep breath and let her rip!

Molly Maguire’s is very excited to be hosting Open Mic Night at our restaurant in Rumson. Stop by for a listen, or show us what you’ve got! Sign ups start at 7 p.m., so be sure to arrive a little early if you’d like to perform! If you’re still a little nervous there is always an ice cold craft beer waiting for you!

To teach you about typical Irish food and to have a little fun, we are going to give our wonderful guests a lesson in Irish food terms. Sit back, relax and take a journey into the Irish language with us.

1. Lamb Stew. A typical Irish stew is made of lamb or mutton, with potatoes, onions and a bit of stout for added flavor and consistency.

2. Bangers. In England and Ireland, sausages are called bangers. They are traditionally made with pork, however beef bangers are common. A popular interpretation is the name derived from the casings popping or making a bang when they are cooked!

3. Boxty or Boxdy. Simply potato pancakes, these are a mixture of grated raw potatoes, leftover mashed potatoes, baking powder and sweet milk. Today, cooks often add in onions and garlic for flavor.

4. Soda Bread. This delicious Irish classic is a quick bread that uses soda as a leavener. There are many different ingredients that vary between cook, which can result in standard or sweet breads.

5. Chicken Broody. An oven-roasted chicken cut up with cheese sauce, potatoes and mushrooms.

6. Coddles. This is a traditional Saturday night dinner in Dublin to prevent hangovers. Bits of bacon and pork sausages are stewed with sliced onions and potatoes, seasoned with salt and pepper.

7. Corned Beef and Cabbage. Pickled brisket is simmered slowly in water. Near the end of cooking time, cabbage wedges are thrown in and cooked until tender. The meat is then sliced and served with cabbage wedges.

8. Colcannon. This Irish favorite combines two staples: potatoes and cabbage! Mashed potatoes are combined with shredded cabbage and onions, sometimes served with melted butter.

9. Shepherd’s Pie. In the traditional sense, this is a pie made with minced lamb or mutton topped with mashed potatoes and then baked.

10. Slainte. This one word means “good health” that is heard before sharing a drink among loved ones—a pint of Guinness or whiskey perhaps?

St. Patrick’s Day History

March 1, 2012 3:21 pm

March is here and that means it is time to start counting down to our favorite holiday—St. Patrick’s Day! Break out your green clothes, shamrocks, and festive spirits and get ready to celebrate with Molly Maguire’s, where the Guinness is flowing and traditional Irish meals are warm and delicious! But before you put on that green sweater, Molly Maguire’s Black Point Inn is serving up some St. Patrick’s Day history!

The Man behind the Green

Did you know that the St. Patrick we all know and love every March 17 was born in Britain?  At the age of 16, his world was turned upside down when he was kidnapped and sent overseas to tend to sheep as a slave in the cold Irish countryside for seven years.

He later escaped, but then returned to Ireland and was credited for bringing Christianity to the people of Ireland. His death that is believed to be on March 17 became ingrained in the Irish culture. The most well known legend of St. Patrick is that he explained the Holy Trinity, using the three leaves of a native Irish clover, the shamrock.

The Celebration

Since around the ninth or tenth century, people in Ireland have been observing the Roman Catholic feast day of St. Patrick on March 17. The religious feast day was celebrated to mark the anniversary of his death in the fifth century. The Irish have observed this day as a religious holiday for over a thousand years!

Since St. Patrick’s Day falls during the Christian season of Lent, Irish families would attend church in the morning and celebrate in the afternoon. Prohibitions during Lent about the consumption of meat were waived, and people would dance, drink and feast on the traditional meal of Irish bacon and cabbage!

The First Parade

Surprisingly, the very first parade held to honor St. Patrick’s Day took place on March 17, 1762 in New York City! Irish soldiers serving in the English military marched through the streets of the city. Along with the music that they played, the parade helped the soldiers to reconnect to their Irish roots, as well as with fellow Irishmen serving in the English army.

Growth of the Parades

Over the next few decades, Irish patriotism sprung up among American immigrants. With the rise of this patriotism came societies such as the Friendly Sons of Saint Patrick and the Hibernian Society. Each group would hold annual parades where they featured bag pipes and drums!

In 1848, New York Irish Aid Societies decided to ban together to form one official New York City St. Patrick’s Day Parade. Today, the parade is the world’s oldest civilian parade and the largest in the United States, with over 150,000 participants! Each year, nearly three million people line in the 1.5 mile parade route to watch this impressive procession—which lasts more than five hours! Today, cities such as Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia and Savannah also celebrate with their own parades.

With a holiday so rich in history, no wonder it is so much fun! But don’t worry; you don’t have to wait until March 17 to indulge in a little Irish culture, come visit us in Rumson! Molly Maguire’s is here to provide you with a traditional Irish pub experience complete with delicious food, drinks, entertainment and warm hospitality. “Like” us on Facebook to see our specials!
