The clouds have parted.
The sun has once again decided to grace us with its presence.
All in all, pretty damn good timing...
Because here comes Campton Yard, a breezy, beachfront, Spike Mendelsohn–helmed establishment for drinking beer, eating pretzels and playing oversize board games under the sun, open as of today in South Beach. Here she is now.
You’re working with a 100% alfresco situation here. That’s important to know. Particularly for those days when nothing but leisuring in a banyan-tree-shaded yard with string lights, wicker chairs and a ping-pong table will do.
Note the wide wooden bar. That’s where the taps filled with local beers and mojitos live. But perhaps you’ll pull up one of those bright-yellow stools and try a Batida de Maracuja with passion fruit, cachaça and condensed milk instead. And then, maybe you decide it’s time to hustle the group who fancy themselves Connect Four phenoms.
Eventually, you’ll break for a tiki dog with smoked turkey sausage and grilled mango. Or a “Big Ass Pretzel” with mustard and chipotle cheese sauce. Or whatever, really. You’re hanging out in an adult playground. Do what feels right.
Especially if what feels right involves tiki dogs and Big Ass Pretzels.
