Summer will soon be upon us and we’ve paired up with Jauntsetter to offer Brooklyn Based readers a chance to win an escape from the summer heat of the city to the cool ocean breezes of the North Fork of Long Island.
The winner will receive two nights at the Greenporter Hotel, a five-minute walk from the Long Island Rail Road, and $200 to splurge on dinner at The Frisky Oyster, the new American restaurant that pioneered the North Fork dining scene. The Greenporter has a classic beach town feel, crossed with a 60s modern aesthetic. Plus, there’s a pool, a restaurant and bar serving delicious bites and Long Island wines. For the full taste of the North Fork, you have The Frisky Oyster’s seasonal, farm-fresh fare. Their menu is studded with local seafood, including the must-have Oysters Friskafella, as well as stellar salads, grass-fed beef and local duck.
The best part is that you don’t need a car for this getaway. The small, seaside village of Greenport is eminently walkable, with plenty of cute shops, waterfront bars, and great restaurants that are easy to leisurely explore. Just hop on the train or bus and Greenport will be your oyster.
Jauntsetter, the smartest travel email out there, has loads of great tips on North Fork getaways. Whether you’re looking for quick and easy city escapes, last-minute deals, or dream vacation inspiration, Jauntsetter is the travel resource for adventurous New Yorkers. To win, all you have to do is sign up for Jauntsetter (and Brooklyn Based, if you’re not already!).
The dates in the fine print for the contest are in April 2014. Assuming it’s a typo, but it should be fixed.
