Coney Island and "Scrappers" at John's Deli

hope you had a great weekend! Over the weekend we were able to head over to a place that I haven't been to in so long, Coney Island! I don't know why we haven't been there this year but it is one of my favorite places. I used to go all the time when I was in college and right afterwards. There's nothing like walking on a beach (even though its not so clean) but a beach regardless, and for free! I used to love going to NJ beaches but after awhile the beach badge checkers catch on that I'm not sleeping all day and I eventually have to pay the badge fee. So to come to a beach by the city that is free where I can still feel the sand between my toes and feel the sun on my face is refreshing! To be honest, I wouldn't swim in the water because of elevated bacteria levels (I never thought I'd say that) but I do love walking on the boardwalk. Their huge boardwalk has a Nathans, many pubs/bars, an amusement park, the NY Aquarium and even a circus. And if you can get there early you can get parking at the meters which amounts to about 1$ for 2 hours, or you can pay 10$ for parking all day in a private lot.
Last weekend a friend of a friend of ours was having a party for him and his friends new show "Scrappers" airing on Spike TV at an outdoor sandbar called John's Deli. It was actually a really cool relaxed space. There was sand on the ground and the bar/deli is fenced off in its own area from the boardwalk so that you can still see the ocean and have alittle privacy. We had drinks that amounted to 10$ total, not too bad! Its a very cool low key low priced place to grab lunch or a quick meal! Here are a few pictures from the party (I couldn't help but feel alittle like we were in an episode of the Jersey Shore:)) It was alot of fun!


  1. It makes me think of Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco. Totally free and lots of fun.

  2. that looks like someplace I'd like to visit sometime! Elevated bacteria levels, huh? Ick.
