Dining at the beach allows you to impress your date by sharing champagne at sunset, writing your names in the sand, and playing a shark like a trumpet. Net some seaside eats with today's Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of pizza, sandwiches, ice cream, and drinks at The Spot at Vanderbilt Beach.
The cooks at The Spot at Vanderbilt Beach satiate beach-goers' tummies with a roster of made-to-order edibles, including 11 gourmet pizzas, sandwiches, and frozen treats just steps from the beach. Diners can sidle up to a classic disk with a cheese pizza ($12.99), or diagram volleyball strategies by substituting the meatball pizza's ($17.99) savory spheres for bikini-clad competitors. For a more compact lunch, guests can nab a sandwich, including the tuna melt ($7.95) and club hoagie ($7.95). Chicken philly cheesesteak ($10) stuffs buns with poultry morsels, and the famous philly cheesesteak ($10) sports traditional fixings and bread with celebrity-shaped scorch marks. Beer ($3–$3.50), wine, or sangria ($6) can refill barren coolers, and patrons pursuing frostier spirits can chill tongues with alcohol-infused ice cream, scooping up such flavors as chocolate martini and peach white zinfandel ($5.99 for small; $6.99 for large; $10.99 for a pint).
Though not included in this Groupon, a paddleboarding session on one of The Spot's rentable Quinn boards fosters a postmeal core workout and a more convenient way to chaperone underwater proms.
