Where is your favorite place in Otown to enjoy a cold Corona Light? Knight Library’s very own beach bar! Where do you go to metaphorically #FindYourBeach? I find my beach by traveling to tropical places, my favorite is Hawaii. Who’s the bartender you would nominate as the Hottest in Otown? Riley Farrow! What is your favorite local REAL beach when “Finding your beach”? New Smyrna Beach!
Sharon from Casey’s on Central
Your favorite place in Otown to enjoy a cold Corona Light? Casey’s of course! It’s the Best place to start and end the night! Where do you go to metaphorically #FindYourBeach? Home.

I think the best place to metaphorically find my beach is when I clear my head and just relax. I imagine being at The Breakers in NSB enjoying a nice corona and their delicious corn nuggets! Bartender you would nominate as the Hottest in Otown? I would nominate Clare Kehoe again and again she is not only incredibly beautiful on the outside but the sweetest human being I’ve ever met!
