Forgotten Boardwalk Is Throwing A Party


Forgotten Boardwalk – the old-fashioned arcade-themed brewery that’s taking over the old Flying Fish space in Cherry Hill – is still waiting for the state to give it the green light to start producing beer. But co-owners Jamie Queli and Seth Dolled are tired of sitting around and want to throw a party NOW. So tomorrow, they’re hosting their first public event. Although there won’t be beer, there will be charity and games.

From 5-8 pm, they’re asking people to stop by for a little camaraderie and fun with food trucks while contributing to a canned food drive to benefit the Food Bank of Southern New Jersey. Head brewer David Bronstein has brewed a non-alcoholic lemonade for the occasion, with proceeds going to Sustainable New Jersey. And because the company’s logo is a feral cat, attendees are also encouraged to bring canned cat food for the Animal Adoption Center, a no-kill shelter in Lindenwald. If you plan to bring human food, the biggest need is for non-perishables like peanut butter and jelly, macaroni and cheese, tuna, breakfast cereal, canned vegetables, canned fruit and pasta.

Said Queli in a press release, “One of the biggest goals for my company is to be a great neighbor within our community.  If Forgotten Boardwalk (had been) operational since the time we planned, there would have been significant tax revenue that the state could benefit from.  I have a very large space and I have the staff.  I thought it would be a great idea to turn our misfortune into something wonderful for the public.”

Additionally, Forgotten Boardwalk plans to launch its own non-profit charity in the near future: Don’t Be Naughty – The Responsible Foundation, which will develop and execute public service projects in the arena of “environmental responsibility and community sustainability.”
