Fancy beach picnic
I fancy myself a beach professional and like to stay the entire day at the local NJ beaches. I have a lot of toys to haul a large amount of stuff to the beach to make the day special. When I go to the beach everyone wants to go too. Any ideas on interesting food and drink I can bring. No sandwiches please (unless they are to die for). Thanks
