Minneapple hits the beach!
This Saturday, we have a very extra special Summer Field Trip Edition of the Minnesota (usually once- but in July its twice-) Monthly Happy Hour @ Minnesotas Bar in Long Beach.
We’ll be meeting fellow Minnesotans for drinks at 5pm, after spending a lovely day at Long Beach, at the strangely named Minnesotas Bar, which seemingly has no Minnesota-related traits. Because let’s face it – lake beaches have nothing on the gorgeous Hamptons-esque beach in Long Beach – we gotta take advantage of the surf and sand! I guess the bar is named after its cross-street, which are all named after states along Long Beach’s main drag. Minnesotas Bar is located at 959 W Beech Street at Minnesota Avenue, Long Beach, NY.
The easiest way to get to Long Beach is to take the LIRR to Long Beach. A special express train leaves Penn Station at 10:22am and the special fare includes your beach access, which is usually $10.
The happy hour event technically begins at 5pm, but to enjoy the beach with your fellow Minnesotans before our happy hour, just come to the beach near Grand Blvd – it’s about halfway between the LIRR and Minnesotas Bar. We’re taking the express, so any time is fine! Look for my I “MN” NY tote bag!
