When deprived of flavorful sustenance, the mouth will often retaliate by shouting your bank-account number at sporting events or turning every sentence into a high-pitched jingle. Tame an unruly tongue with today’s Groupon: for $9, you get beach admission for two (up to an $8 value) and $10 worth of American fare at Linoma Beach Bar in Gretna (up to an $18 total value). Kids 2 and under are admitted free.
Replete with its own sandy beach, swimming area, and grilled cuisine, Linoma Beach Bar affords a casual haunt for midsummer revelry. Fuel up for a game of beach volleyball with a bratwurst and pickled baby sweet peppers cradled in a soft hoagie ($7), or replenish after an exhausting afternoon of full-contact sunbathing with a symphonic simple salad, with grilled chicken, romaine, and garden lettuce in a zesty champagne-and-raspberry vinaigrette ($6). Appetizers and small plates ($1.50–$6), along with the whole menu, are seasonal and can include Asian-inspired summer rolls, which consist of shrimp, scallions, and cilantro and are served with a peanut dipping sauce, and grilled corn on the cob with toppings. The beach is open seven days a week, and the kitchen is open Tuesday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
