New Year's Day - Brown's at the Beach

Good Morning!

Putting this out to see if anyone is interested!  I thought it might be fun to head down to Brown's in Seabrook for a New Year's Day extravaganza! We can order lobsters, steamers, etc. They also will let us bring in appetizers and desserts and BYOB.... I have done this in the past with my family and we bring candles and tablecloths and start the New Year off with a BANG!


I am planning on going and would love company!!!

    Mary, sorry you worried. I got a smart phone for Christmas, and didn't realize my old phone didn't still work. I tried to call you using the old phone, but of course couldn't make the connection. I am soooo going to be a tech savvy bitch in 2014!

    Missed it! Got hopelessly lost. Found a Starbucks somewhere, don't know where, and just stayed there for several hours, relaxing, sipping green tea, and writing on my iPad.

    FYI A New Years Day road race will be running on rt. 1A tomorrow so be aware you might not be able to get across to the beach. It starts at 10 to 12 I believe., or until the last runner goes by. Hampton to Salisbury is the route

    I will not be walking at 10:30 but hoping for clams and fries at noontime, cold is coming on :( so will update tomorrow should things change. Happy New Year's eve to all!

    Good Morning! If anyone wants to carpool you would need to organize and post as I will be coming from Haverhill that day and not Windham. As far as BYOB, you can only bring in beer and wine. Since they have soda and water, they prefer you purchase it there. We will all meet at Brown's at 10:30 and then we can carpool the short distance to the beach to walk.

    December 31, 2013

    • Cindy2C

      I will not able to make it for the walk, but will be there at 12:00.

      December 31, 2013

  • Candy L.

    I won't be doing the walk - will probably walk in my neighborhood prior to heading to Brown's.

    December 30, 2013

  • Candy L.

    Oops, just saw that it is BYOB - sorry!

    December 30, 2013

  • Candy L.

    Can we bring drinks other than wine? Soda, water etc.? If not, what else do we need? How about chips and salsa?

    Hi Joanne, Looks like weather is going to cooperate for the drive down from Concord NH so unless anything changes I'll be there and bring veggies, chips and dip.

    December 30, 2013

  • Deepa F

    Is there a walk at 10:30 AM too?

    December 30, 2013

    • Joanne A.

      Yes, there is a walk at 10:30 followed by Brown's? If you could bring glasses and a corkscrew that would be great! Also don't forget everyone that Brown's is cash only. There is an ATM outside if needed.

      December 30, 2013

  • Deepa F

    Hi JoAnne, i'm bringing a bottle of wine too. Will there be cups/glasses or should I bring some? Happy holidays to all of you and looking forward to lobsta

    Hello Everyone! Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!! Can't make any definite plans on anything! My good friends are flying in from London England on Monday Dec. 30th. They will be staying with me for a few nites then heading up north to ski, then coming back to stay with me again before they head back to London England. I don't know what their itinerary is for skiing - so I am left in limbo!! Will have to make last minute adjustments when they finally arrive! But I do know that they are over here in the states for 2 weeks...

    I didn't even think of a walk, but yes that would be fabulous! How about we meet at 10:30 at Brown's and we can carpool over the beach for a walk before we have our meal? And yes, this event is definite. Also, FYI, they only accept Cash but there is an ATM right outside the door.
