Today will be our first 2018 installment ofBeachDates: a super creatively titled series where we dream up every kind of person you might be out with, every situation, every weather, and every allergy possibility and put them into a special machine that spits out flawless itineraries for up to a full day of planned togetherness. Either that, or we just crafted them from stuff we know and like. We’ll never tell.
It’s an itinerary we’re calling The Williamsburg Beach Date: for when it’s hot AF in Brooklyn and you’ve got no imminent plans to get out of town. It’s a date that will involve lounging poolside on one of two gorgeous rooftops, eating burgers in a Palm-Springs-in-the-’50s-feeling backyard and sampling some ancient Mediterranean form of ice cream in flavors like candied cream and Sichuan white chocolate. Drinking ginger Mai Tais in a brand new surf/skate/disco-inspired spot, too.
