It’s time to harness that summer OvR flavor and get Back to the Beach!
Since we’re always looking to bring our guests the best, we’ve teamed up with the awesome folks at The Bushwick Beach Bus to keep that beach party rolling to and from Brooklyn and Rockaway!
Rockaway Beach is an old New York institution on the rise after surviving the devastating effects of Hurricane Sandy. You can support a rebuilding scene and join OvR & BBB for an epic day at the beach!
Post Hurricane Sandy, the Bushwick staple Pearl’s Social & Billy Club became a major donation drop off hub for supplies in the relief effort. Bar staff and regulars worked tirelessly over the months following the hurricane to bring goods and volunteers to Rockaway. Fast forward to the summer of 2014 and the owners of Pearl’s looking for a way to keep the Rockaway and Bushwick communities connected and flourishing: The Bushwick Beach Bus was born as a direct way to keep Bushwick and The Rockaways connected. After kicking off the OvR Beach Bus last summer, it became apparent our missions were aligned with the BBB, so we’re collaborating to being the best service available from BK to Rockaway!!!
Rent a board and get a surf lesson with the awesome guys at Locals Surf School. Bar hop at some of the best beach bars in the game, or keep it mellow and just hang on the beach, whatever you’re into OvR & BBB have you covered! With exclusive deals at a variety of local spots including restaurants, hotels and shops, you are guaranteed to get the authentic Rockaway experience!
Round trip transportation, as well as oneway to/from Rockaway Beach, Riis Park Beach Bazaar and Fort Tilden on “The Fun Bus”. Yes, there will be air conditioning, a bathroom, and refreshing refreshments. Getting to the Rockaways can be (dare I use this bad joke)… No “day at the beach”. When you get on the Bushwick Beach Bus with OvR to and from Rockaway Beach, the commute becomes part of the experience.
Kickoff for the OvR / Bushwick Beach Bus is the weekend of Saturday May 30th & Sunday May 31st, running through Labor Day Weekend!
