Grab your lawn chairs, a BBQ and your sound system. Sprinkle with some friends and you are prepped for one of the best parties on earth. Themes always vary and anything goes: Hawaiian shirts, grass skirts, bunnies, retro, 60’s tie dye run the gammet. I have seen gorrilas, bananas, spongebob, pole dancers and more rocking the scene like this dude is. So here is the skinny. You can do the beach two different ways. Prepare to rise early. The early riser parking lot opens it’s gates at as early as 6:30 – 7am but it can vary.  From there its a slow-mo race to secure your favorite point on this strip at the foot of the mountain.

Two deck picks for the south end of town include Quandary Grille (closest to the slopes) and Burke and Riley’s (sit by the fire pits). Or, hit Kenosha early – grab a spot in the sun, go for happy hour $1 PBRs with sweet potato tots, and get after a game of horseshoes. Sounds pretty perfect, huh?
