After battling rowdy renters and out-of-control keggers for decades, this Jersey shore party town has finally decided to lighten up a little.I live south of Fort Lauderdale North, so I guess that would make Down-the-Jersey-Shore South Beach North.

Belmar, sometimes called "Fort Lauderdale North" for its reputation as a raucous party enclave, has scrapped laws against giving the finger and requiring beer kegs to be registered. The town's mayor said the rules were difficult to enforce.
"I'm not sure anyone even knew that making obscene gestures was illegal," Mayor Ken Pringle said. "Right after we send out our tax bills, I tend to see a few."
