Martell’s Journey through the Summer of 2011

30 Sep

Martell’s Tiki Bar had a fabulous summer partying with all of the great guests and regulars who came through the doors! It was quite the crazy summer between the earthquake, celebrity weddings and chart topping songs you all loved to hear! Check out our summer 2011 recap, but don’t forget we’re still partying all year!

The biggest news on the Jersey Shore was Mother Nature making a few appearances on the east coast. On August 23, an earthquake hit Virginia and the 5.9 magnitude quake stretched throughout the east coast including New Jersey, New York and North Carolina. Many ocean side residents couldn’t believe what was happening, and although the tremor didn’t last long, we will never forget it!

Hurricane Irene came around only a few days later on August 27. Irene was the first hurricane to hit the land of New Jersey since 1903! From the Carolinas to Little Egg Inlet all the way to Vermont, the affects of the hurricane resulted in severe flooding, road erosion and power outages across the east coast. Martell’s Tiki Bar survived the storm, proudly!

Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries tied the knot on August 20. 400 guests joined the couple for the Old Hollywood themed wedding. Vera Wang designed not only the wedding dress, but the reception dress for the affair. The two then scampered off to Italy for a honeymoon!

We bet you remember where you were when you heard the news of Amy Winehouse. The English singer songwriter was found in her home on July 23. In August, her Back to Black album became the best selling album of the 21st Century in the UK.

Chart Toppers – According to the Billboard charts, these were the top 5 songs of the summer of 2011:

  1. Party Rock Anthem – LMFAO
  2. Give Me Everything – Pitbull ft. Ne-Yo
  3. Rolling in the Deep – Adele
  4. Super Bass – Nicki Minaj
  5. Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F) – Katy Perry

Did you happen to get to the movies on those rainy days? Here’s a recap of the top movies from this summer: Bridesmaids, The Hangover II, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 and Crazy Stupid Love!

This summer was quite interesting, and it was a blast having all of you come party with us! We had some beautiful days on the ocean and we braved the natural disasters! We would like to hear what you’re favorite moments of the summer were! Let us know on our Facebook page and stay up to date with events happening year round at Martell’s!
