I've been going to Martell's Tiki Bar on the boardwalk in Pt. Pleasant Beach, New Jersey, since I was in high school and had to use a 35-year-old woman's driver's license to get in, and it just gets better every year. Maybe ten years back, Martell's brought in some live palm trees (I believe they have to be replaced every year after the winter ravages them) to add to the tropical paradise of frozen drinks.
Rex and I always go to see Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes at Martell's around Labor Day. Now that I've purchased my tickets online, I can reveal the dates – August 25th and August 26th – as well as a link for you to buy your own tickets.
