Jenkinson's Inlet Bar
- Dress Code: Anything Goes
Brian Mullin calls it a vacation of sorts, his weekly Thursday night excursion to Jenkinson's Beach, right next to or adjacent to or part of Jenkinson's Inlet, the best-kept secret on the Point Pleasant Beach boardwalk.
"For four or five hours, we're on vacation," he said, minutes before another fabulous fireworks display on the beach, Jenkinson's Beach, at the north end of the boardwalk, a comfortable distance from the hustle and bustle of the center of the boardwalk.
Gathered with the Toms River resident was his wife, Laurie, and 4-year-old son, Declan, all situated down on the beach, just steps away from the food and drink at Jenkinson's Inlet, or, as I've heard it called, Jenkinson's North, not to be confused with Jenkinson's, at the center of the boards.
"Food, drink, the fireworks - it's our vacation for a couple of hours every Thursday," Mullin said.
The Mullin family, friends and relatives have been coming to Point Pleasant Beach for three summers, he said. It's been the same routine each week.
"Pizza, hot dogs, beer (of course, can you blame him?) ... it's all right here, and the fireworks," he said.
Of course, the fireworks.
