Holidaze Are Here
Starlight, star bright, the Starburst Gayla is the night, to see hundreds of women dance with delight, join them and you’ll feel just right!
The Women’s New Year’s Eve Dinner and Dance on December 31 is not to be missed! You can start the evening with a gourmet dinner and fabulous desserts, then dance the night away with entertainment by Viki Dee and DJ Peggy Castle. Go to camprehoboth.com for all the details.
The weekend this issue hits the stands, events include the Ritz Chamber Players presented by Coastal Concerts, the Rainbow Chorale’s Holiday Concert, From Our Table to Yours, and the Annual MERR Finraiser at the Lewes Yacht Club. MERR is our local marine mammal and turtle research and rescue foundation.
Starting November 23, The Clear Space Theatre Company presents A Christmas Carol. Also that weekend is the annual Tree Lighting, the Rehoboth Beach Farmers’ Holiday Market offering holiday decorations as well as edibles, and the Southeastern Delaware Artists Studio Tour.
The last weekend in November/start of December is the Children’s Beach House Holiday Art Show & Sale, the Lewes Historical Society’s House Tour, and the Lewes Hometown Christmas Parade, Tree-lighting and Caroling. The Rehoboth Beach Hometown Christmas Parade is on Tuesday, Dec. 4.
2012 World AIDS Day on December 1 will include a Rehoboth Beach Candlelight Walk, Service of Remembrance and Hope, and other activities.
It’s Good to be First on Front! is the celebration of Delaware Day, December 7, on Front Street in Lewes. Delaware Day commemorates our status of being the first state to ratify the U.S. Constitution in 1787. December 8 is the Holiday Open House at Rehoboth Art League, the Milton Holly Festival, and the Rehoboth Beach Seashore Marathon.
Since Letters won’t appear again till February, don’t miss these February events: the CAMP Chorus Concert; pianist Misha Dichter, presented by Coastal Concerts; and the Lewes Polar Bear Plunge which actually takes place in Rehoboth.
In other news, Morgan and Gower Cheesemongers should be open on Baltimore Avenue any day now. Cloud 9 has been sold, and rumors abound about its future. Who knows?
Out on Route 1, The Captain’s Table Restaurant has reopened under new ownership and a second Head Mechanics salon opened in the space vacated by Bewitched Tattoo in the Shoppes of Camelot. The Rehoboth Foodie reports that Louie’s “Home of the Grinder” on Rehoboth Avenue will take over Timothy’s Tap House, and offer home delivery of their famous pizza.
Heading north to Lewes, Jay Caputo (owner of Espuma and Cabo), will open the Rose & Crown in the former Beseme space in the hotel Rodney. In December, two women I love and adore will open a Pet Depot (pet supplies) in the Mariner’s Plaza near BLING and Pat’s Pizza. The vacated spaces next to Surf Bagel will combine to become a new flooring store.
As I’ve mentioned before, there are unbelievable meal deals to be had this time of year and restaurants are pulling out all the stops to keep you dining! The Pickled Pig now has a Punch Lunch card. Eat with them six times and the seventh is free. Try my two faves, the Hummus and Red Pepper Feta Dip and the Southwestern Salad. On Wilmington Avenue, Tuscan Grill has partnered with Shamrock Taxi to offer a free shuttle service roundtrip from your home to the restaurant (some restrictions apply). How’s that for service?
May your holidays be fabulous and bright, and the New Year bring you much delight!
