Beach Venue for Party
I'm in the very, very early stages of planning a party and had the grand idea of possibly doing something on the beach. I know that Merri Makers in Sea Bright does weddings, corporate events, etc. I've read about private parties at Avenue in Pier Village that incorporate the beach. I also know of someone who held a party at Jenkinsons in Point Pleasant (although that wasn't technically on the beach). Are there other venues (Monmouth preferred, but Ocean too), beach clubs who will do a party for a non-member, restaurants, etc.? Any ideas appreciated.
I went to a wonderful beach birthday party last year that was held by Ocean Resort in Long Branch, next to Pier Village. They had tented areas with tables for us and set up a grill and buffet and a tiki hut for drinks. It was nicely done.
I understand that Jenkinson's North will do "on the beach" events. Also, Shore Catering offers an on the beach clambake on one of the Brick beaches, south of Point Pleasant.
