Little bundle of joy:
|Love the old school brown paper everything|
|That's a serious sandwich|
If you still have room, note that Red Mango, which offers certified gluten-free frozen yogurt, is on the same street as La Bottega. Lemme tell you, a froyo after a long, glorious day at the beach is the perfect way to end your trip.
The deets on getting to Long Beach, NY: Take the LIRR from Atlantic Center in Brooklyn (woot!) or Penn Station. (If you take it from Brooklyn, you'll need to transfer for Long Beach in Jamaica - no biggie.) During beach season, LIRR offers "beach getaway" tix that are such a deal, at $21 for both train ticket AND beach pass. (They are over $25 if purchased separately.) Once off the train, it's a mere 4 blocks to the beach, with delis, a Starbucks, a surf shop, and all other manner of amenities on the main drag. Just so easy, I can't believe more people don't make the trip! Labor Day is tomorrow and you have the makings of a lovely beach day, right here. (Just sayin'.)
Happy holiday weekend, all. More soon!
