Mr. K and I recently went to experience Beach Break Tuesdays at Islands and I’ve been given a opportunity to host a great giveaway package, including a $100 gift card to Islands. Details of all the giveaway items in the package is at the end of this post.
Islands has happy hour in the bar area every weekday, but on Tuesdays, they have a special Beach Break Tuesdays happy hour that starts at 4 and runs all night long. In addition to some super cheap cocktails and appetizers, what I really loved about my experience was the freebies! I love getting free stuff.
When we sat down, the tables were decorated with koozies and inside each one was a really nice metal keychain shaped like a sandal and it doubles as a bottle opener. There are a few different colors. After much contemplating, I went with the purple keychain and the green koozie.
In addition, while we were eating, employees passed out beach towels as well. So we went home with keychains, koozies, and beach towels. Horray for free stuff!
Of course there was cheap food and drink options too.
Chips & Salsa
Chips and salsa are free at the bar during happy hour. We opted to add the fresh made guacamole which costs an additional $2.45. The chips were warm and crunchy and we devoured the plate of chips and dip in a matter of minutes.
We had really enjoyed the poke on our last visit, so we got it again. It didn’t taste quite the same. This time there seemed to be a lot of black pepper added to it. I preferred the version we had last time but Mr. K preferred this one. He said it reminded him of spicy tuna rolls. I like that it’s served on fried wonton skins which have a lighter texture than tortilla chips.
We had these previously and enjoyed them and I enjoyed them again this time as well. The patties were moist and I like the addition of grilled pineapples.
Since it was Happy Hour, Mr. K also ordered a Mai Tai. There are five different cocktails available for reduced prices during Beach Break Tuesdays.
If you come between 4-7, you can enjoy the regular happy hour menu items in addition to the Beach Break Tuesday items, which really maximizes the discounted food and drink items.
Currently, Beach Break Tuesdays is offered every Tuesday in the bar area from 4 until close. The free keychains, koozies, and towels are while supplies last. Here is the Beach Break Tuesday menu:
