Hear Ye, Hear Ye! Only 18 days remain until the Feinbergs make their annual pilgrimage to the place that got ROBBED by Walt “I heart Adolf” Disney for the title of Happiest Place on Earth: Long Beach Island.
If you haven’t already heard, LBI is where every single one of the most pleasant activities on earth come together on a single sandbar: boogy boarding, day drinking, cornhole, mowing face on cold cuts, getting weird with salty townies while listening to Bon Jovi cover bands, ice cream truck chasing, and quality time with the world’s most fantastic humans: Linda, Larry, JTJ, and OLP.
Just as no beach vaca is complete without possible sun poisoning, jellyfish itch, and copious amounts of fried seafood, so too are the perfect musical stylings absolutely essential. That’s where the official LBI 2012 Playlist comes in.
