This past weekend I went to the beach to eat.
I'm the only person I know who goes to a beach not for the sand and sun but for the food, but I'm good with that. As far as I'm concerned, sand is kind of icky. It gets everywhere - your hair, your ears, your socks - and it's usually too hot to walk on.
So, when I announced my intention to visit Brighton Beach to friends last week, I made sure to specify, I'm not going to the actual beach - I'm going for the Russian and Ukrainian food.
