Get a Brazilian

No, not a Brazilian wax, which my Daily News compadre Jason Nark wrote so compellingly about when the State of New Jersey was flirting with banning, before reconsidering after much outcry from the tiny bikini crowd. And not even a Brazilian hair straightening, which apparently can be accomplished free of formaldehyde these days, or so I'm told. No, here in Sea Isle City, the venerable Dalrymple's is selling what they call a Brazillan beach chair. Which they offer in two varieties: the "2 Pos" one which is 2 positions for $15.49, or the "5-7 Pos" one, for $17.49. Me, I always prefer at least five to seven for my beach chairs. From what I could tell from the display, Brazilian chairs are distinguished by their very sleek profile on the canvas sling, for which you would need to be rather narrow to fit on one. Sounds about right. And if you can snag a Brazilian soccer player to go with it, so much the better.

About this blog

Inquirer staff writer Amy S. Rosenberg has covered Philly police, city neighborhoods, Ed Rendell as mayor, the Jersey shore, Atlantic City, Miss America and the psychology of Eagles fans. She moved to Ventnor on July 3, 1995, which makes her a local, but not really.

Inquirer Staff Writer Jacqueline L. Urgo has spent every summer of her life at the Jersey Shore, and has lived there year-round for nearly 30 years, even fulfilling one of her bucket list dreams by once living in a house by the sea.

Since 1990, she has covered the waterfront for The Inquirer — from the Atlantic to the Delaware Bay shore — and some of the mainland in between. Along the way, she amassed an encyclopedic knowledge of this tear-it-down-and-build-it-back-up region, delving into the history and the hype of a place with a lot of unexpected stories to tell.
