Hampton Luxury Liner ferries its passengers around in a lavish motorcoach that boasts five flat-screen TVs, complimentary WiFi, and an on-bus library. The luxury buses travel to destinations ranging from the Hamptons to Atlantic City, with specific stops at wineries, resorts, and casinos. Reclining leather seats with space for laptops and maximum leg extension typify the cushy interior, and each road cruiser also comes equipped with a library and refrigerator, useful for storing steaks to distract the thousands of chasing dogs such a luxurious bus usually attracts.

The warm, always affable staff oversees a symphony of clinking glasses at Brew House. They maintain a convivial atmosphere that features plenty of brews, bar food, and flat-screen TVs airing sports. With bottles of Corona or Sam Adams, the staff serves housemade empanadas, coconut shrimp, and Brew House fries topped with cheese, bacon, and green onions with a side of gravy. The kitchen team’s grill also turns out sandwiches, wraps, and a Cowboy burger topped with cheddar, bacon, barbecue sauce, and onion rings. Exposed brick walls, rich wood paneling, and gold-patterned hanging lamps welcome patrons to cozy booths, whereas a seat at the bar affords the best look at the TVs and more liquor bottles than Winston Churchill had in his vault.

Brasserie 214 traces its roots far across the space-time continuum. The original iteration of the restaurant launched way back in 1938, but recent renovations and menu evolutions have brought French, Northern Italian, Belgian, German, and Scandinavian culinary traditions to the fore. Entrees such as salmon niçoise and duck à l'orange, as well as specialty schnitzels, exemplify the kind of elegant dinner, lunch, and brunch fare prepared by the skilled chefs. Imported beers and stateside craft brews pour from the taps to complement that selection. Of course, it wouldn't be a Long Island brasserie or a valid retirement destination without a robust cocktail selection. To that end, bartenders mix together specialty martinis, sangria, and sidecars with Bacardi, Disaronno, and fresh lemon juice served in a sugar-rimmed martini glass.

Popztarz's culinary team crafts homemade ice cream, sorbetto, gelato, and sundaes from fresh fruit and high-quality ingredients. Cool off with a s’mores gelato pop—chocolate gelato with a toasted marshmallow and graham-cracker core ($3.50)—or a vanilla salted-caramel pop with creamy vanilla gelato surrounding a homemade soft caramel inside ($3.50). Snackers can sample gelato, sorbetto, and ice-cream flavors by the scoopful ($2.99–$5.99), including Belgian chocolate, coconut, and butter pecan, or sneak a creamy coating onto the moist gelato-topped cupcake ($2.99). Frozen treat creators can concoct a variety of sundaes according to diner specifications or sling a signature selection, such as the goldrush sundae with chocolate and coffee gelato, caramel syrup, diced almonds, whipped cream, and dreams of westward expansion.
