The Sand Bar, Mastic Beach

Finally, I was within.  I must say there was a sense of fright before stepping through the doors.  It is original.  The current owner Lilian, has now worked there for 35 years but it dates to before the Hurricane of '38.  Details litter the place, accentuating and enhancing the days of the past.  From the pay phone booth with taxi numbers scrawled straight on the wall to the wooder ice boxes under the antique register.  The beer selection is run of the mill LI style, with the full spectrum of LIGHTS.  Full liquor selection.  I left in love.  My only suggestion is to pour some Bluepoint Lager from the taps, other than that I would'nt want to change the past at all.
