This seasonal location of Caracas Arepa Bar is on the boardwalk at Rockaway Beach, and they serve the same excellent arepas as they do at their spots in the East Village and Williamsburg. Get a couple of those, as well as sangria or beers, and hang out at a picnic table. If it’s a summer Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, you might luck out with some live music.
