This weekend — Memorial Day weekend — marks the unofficial start of summer, when many people think about what to do during their beach vacation in New Jersey.

Others are thinking about what not to do.

Our South Philadelphia correspondant, Patsy, was recently at the Target store on Mifflin Street to do some vacation shopping, and filed her list of “Do’s and Don’ts Down the Shore.”

If you have a burning ire regarding certain behaviors down the Shore, let us know.

And — hold on — while you’re at it, why don’t you tell us what you’re looking forward to on the boardwalk and the beach. Don’t be like Patsy’s cousin Fat Joey. OK, hon?

“Patsy” is a creation of Jennifer Childs, whose all-comedy theater company 1812 Productions is now performing its annual political comedy show, “This Is The Week That Is,” at Plays and Players Theatre in Rittenhouse Square.
