Hot Fun in the Summertime
Wow! It was June too soon, but let the games begin!
As soon as this issue hits your hot little hands, mark your calendars for CAMP Rehoboth’s Bachelor Auction, Saturday, June 16 from 5-7 p.m. at Aqua Grill. Fun eye candy, and you might have a date for the ball after all.
For green thumbs and those of us who admire you, the Lewes Garden Tour is also on June 16 and includes nine private gardens and one public garden. Marking the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812, Delaware’s 14th Annual Chautauqua Tent Show will take place June 17-21 in several downtown Lewes locations. The show features re-enactors who take on the personas of celebrated historical figures.
June 23-24 brings the Mid-Atlantic Sea Glass and Coastal Arts Festival which is one of my personal favorites. Lots of great jewelry and experts who can look at any piece of glass and tell you how old it is and where it’s from. Very cool!
New on the shopping front: Longaberger baskets opened a shop in Tanger Bayside. Surf and Skate owners opened a second shop on Rehoboth Avenue called Lei Lula offering women’s clothing, footwear and accessories. Spectrum opened across from Nicola Pizza on First street, and appears to be a clothing, accessories, and gift store as well.
In eatery news, The Roadhouse Steakhouse is no more. In the now freshly painted yellow building will be Old Bay Steak & Seafood House, another restaurant venture by the owner of Port in Dewey. Other Route 1 changes include a new Capriotti’s location coming to the Safeway shopping center. Panera is now open and has been packed every single day; in Lewes, Sushi Heaven is now open next to Bling Salon.
Heading back into the year round beach town (aka Rehoboth) we find Yoga Fresh Yogurt near the just opened Big Sissies Bar and Grill. Just across the canal is Kingston Gourmet offering gourmet take out.
Strolling down First Street, I see that Kay’s Kitchen has their sign/awning in place and may be open by the time this issue hits the stands. Right next door (in the former Wings to Go space) is a tiny little sign announcing that Crepes by the Sea is coming soon. Yum! And over on Wilmington, the old Oasis convenience store has reopened as Sammy’s Market.
I’ve been having a great time checking out all the new restaurants and was very pleased with the fare offered by Cabo. I thought the drink prices were a little high until they brought out my bowl of margarita! Very tasty and very fresh! High marks from my table for the passion fruit guacamole, the hanger steak, the mojitos, and the margaritas.
Did you know that Rehoboth Dairy on Holland Glade Road sells milk in bottles? And everyone is buzzing about their newest product—homemade ice cream. On that note, I may need to take a little drive….
