I was on LBi this weekend and noticed there were no laundrymats open south of the bridge, any way of finding out if they will be any opening soon. the one in Spray Beach has a sign that says use the Surf City laundrymat

  sls5517 wrote @

The Spray Beach laundromat had been looking for people to help move equipment a few weeks ago, so I would think they are trying to open up for the summer, but I have not heard a specific date. I also know Paulie’s in Ship Bottom had people working in it, but I have not heard a date yet either. When I hear something I will let you know and post it.

is the Gazebo in Bat Village opening?

  sls5517 wrote @

The Gazebo in Bay Village will be open for this summer.

Is O’Malley’s Pizza open?

  sls5517 wrote @

Technically yes. The same owners of Omalleys are the owners of Bagel Shack. So, in the morning you can get normal Bagel Shack items and then in the afternoon/evening, you can get Omalley’s pizzas. I do not know what the end plan for Omalleys is, but it is my go to pizza place so I hope it opens later this summer or at least by the off season.

Thanks for the info, do you know if the Black Dog cafe is open? My kids love walking there!

  sls5517 wrote @

Lisa, I am not sure, I have not heard anything about them in a few months since they were trying to get Restaurant Impossible to help them. If I hear anything I will let you know.

Is the 7-11 in Beach Haven (between 11th and 10th) open? I was down in April and it was empty.

  sls5517 wrote @

The 7-11 is still empty, I walked by it yesterday, I am not sure what their plan is.

Any word on Freedom Surf and Spa? I tried calling but I got a recording that the number wasn’t in service, so I’m guess no?

  sls5517 wrote @

They were having some problems before the storm. They used to own the Surf Shack a couple blocks north and sold that last year. I can still see work that needs to be done inside.

Yes they are open.

  Rita Ponessa wrote @

Thank you.

  Beverley wrote @

Is there any news on the Pottery Barge ??

  sls5517 wrote @

From what I hear it was/is a long battle with the insurance company. I think they are trying to open, but lack of money is an issue.

  Lisa wrote @

Is Stutz’s candy shop open?

  sls5517 wrote @

Stutz had been for sale for the last few years, after the storm they found someone to buy the property, rumor is they will open up again somewhere else, but I do not know where yet. Another rumor is that the current property will become a restaurant.

Is 7-11 open in beach haven yet? I saw that there was workers there early July

  Anonymous wrote @

any idea if any of the laurdramats south of the bridge will be opening up , the only one seems to be in Surf City , not real convenient when in BH

  sls5517 wrote @

Paulie’s Coin Laundry in Ship Bottom is open. It is located next to Ravioli and More on the ocean side of Ship Bottom Ave (Between 26 and 25th street). Surf City Laundromat is owned by the same people that own the one near Beach Haven and they just are currently unable to open that location.
