Wildwood Bars Approved To Sell Alcoholic Beverages To Go
We have some amazing news for those who like to enjoy a cold one on a hot summer’s day.
As you know, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy had announced this week that non-essential retail businesses could allow curbside pickup of goods, beginning at 6:00 a.m. on Monday, May 18, but businesses must continue to have their in-store operations closed to customers.
Late on Friday night at 8pm, Governor Murphy signed a bill allowing the sale of alcoholic beverages in sealed or original containers. This is BIG news for the Wildwoods.
The Wildwoods are coming up with ways to open our bars and adhere to these news rules.
According to our friends at Mister Softee, in North Wildwood, there was an emergency city council meeting on Friday to figure out how bars could open for the coming weeks. We are proud to hear that an agreement has been made.
They passed a few different rules. In North Wildwood’s Old New Jersey, the spot where most bars are, they are going to close off the streets and allow bars to sell drinks through windows. These bars can set up tables and chairs outside their establishment.
On the boardwalk places like Capt Jacks can sell their drinks in sealed or orignal containers to-go only! We had seen many fishbowls sold yesterday.
Of course you still need to follow the state rules that require masks while visiting these establishments. Also be sure to follow the social distancing rules.
The permission selling drinks like this will expire six months after the end of the state of emergency
Tune back later for more information.
