Here’s a third: there’s one on New York Avenue.
So say hello to the aptly named New York Avenue Beach Bar, a new place to drink rum and get sand in sensitive places, expected to open tomorrow night pending final permit approval.
First thing you should know: this is happening out in an empty lot behind the Passenger. Second thing you should know: they’ve filled it with four to six inches of sand—not deep enough for beach volleyball, but plenty deep for tossing a frisbee while you run around in flip-flops.
Speaking of flip-flops, you’ll enter, trade your shoes for a $5 pair of sandals if you like, then commandeer a picnic table, a couple Adirondack chairs or (if you’re feeling bold) the lifeguard chair. Then head over to the makeshift boardwalk, where you’ll find cornhole games, a photo booth with a jet ski for a prop...
... Oh, and bars. Yes, there are two grass-skirted bars dispensing tap beers, frozen drinks and a rotating slate of beach-friendly punches for you to sip as you listen to the waves roll past.
Okay, it’s actually traffic.
