OPEN!  Blackout on The Boardwalk is now a reality.

For about a year, Blackout was the vision of Gail Hershey, who now owns a second shop. (Her first, Beach Nut, is located in Belmar).

Blackout features items either totally black, or a combination of black and another color.

Not only did Gail envision the shop, she built it BY HAND!

A true boutique of black…

Gail designed this very mannequin display.

Menswear is also available.

One side of the shop is a beach shop, open during beach hours.

REST IN PEACE, Danny Aiello, III

IT IS WITH SHOCK AND SADNESS that we announce that Danny Aiello, III, who appeared on popartpete.com for our “One Life To Live Films in Seaside Heights April 2008” video, has passed away at age 53 from the dreaded and mysterious pancreatic cancer.  Danny also filmed in Ocean County in 1981, on the set of Amityville II: The Possession.
