Spring has sprung and we are all scrambling outside to soak in some much needed vitamin D.  What better way to spend the lovely weather than outside with several drinks in hand?   We have just the place to do that.

Beekman Beer Garden Beach Club down by the South Street Seaport is the best place to kick off your shoes and dig your toes in the sand.  While the bar had gone away for the winter, it’s alive and kicking again, opening this Saturday, April 14th, 2012.

Last year, we celebrated the summer opening with Lance Bass and enjoyed an autumn bonfire.  We’re certainly back for more.  From April 14th through the remainder of the month, BBGBC will have a limited weekend schedule on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  Starting May 4th, they will be operating in full force all 7 days of the week – a perfect excuse to take a weekday off.

Not only that, they are launching a new boozy brunch party:  beginning the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend, May 27th, and taking place every Sunday after, they will launch their first Bikini Brunch Beach Party.  Come in your skimpiest swimsuit, nosh on food and drinks, and enjoy music from some of the top DJs.
