Hello Masked Ones! Sending good thoughts to all of you - hang in there.
Was able to confirm that Aldi
is indeed going into the KMart space in Rehoboth
. My research also led me to the Facebook page, Delaware Aldi Nerds
- which is hilarious. I can't wait to shop the AOS aisle. (I'd tell you what it is, but where's the fun in THAT?)
Even more exciting - Taco Reho
is taking over the vacant Burger King
! It will have a drive thru, expanded menu, and feature their incredible homemade tortillas. YUMMM! Can't wait. (The food truck will still be available for events.)
Square One Grill
(Martini Bar & Lounge) is now open on 1st Street in Rehoboth. Check out the pix on their FB page - beautiful remodel! And don't miss the martini menu on their website
has vacated downtown Rehoboth, and are busy renovating the TGIFriday space in the Safeway shopping center, with plans for a spring opening. Freddie's Beach Bar
will open a second location in the former Pond space. How fabulous! Their Arlington location was always a fun place to visit.
Party in a bubble
! The Dough Bar
has a new location, a waterfront view AND, clear, heated, outdoor tents that seat four to six people. The popular restaurant is now situated behind Irish Eyes, near the Milton Memorial Park. Reservations for the "Dough Balls
", as owner, Kristen Latham, calls them, are recommended but not required.
looks to open later this month - menu and photos look DEELISH! From the Gazette article
: “The fritters are roughly the size of a doughnut hole... flavors will include artichoke, risotto, spiced cauliflower, a sesame and chickpea combination, and apple pie. There will be a salad option too, which comes with fritters on top. Gray, a James Beard-nominated chef, said the all-vegetarian menu is modest, but will expand as needed.”
When a chef raves about a dish (that is not their own LOL), you know it has to be good. So when Paul Cullen
could not stop talking about pasta night at The Blue Hen
, I had to go. OMGGGGG ... Melt in your mouth incredible. Seriously. Our entire table could not stop raving. Lemon and Fennel Ricotta Ravioli, Saffron Corzetti with Lobster, Cavatelli with Pork Meatballs... need I say more?
Family Dollar near Apple Electric will become a huge American Veteran Thrift Store
. This location was near Doggies at the Beach
, which has recently closed. Thank you to Jim Reiter and the gang who took such great care of our furballs. After hearing rave reviews on Facebook, we're are now using Pampered Pet for daycare. Delighted to report that owner Melissa and her staff are terrific with our rescues.
Two retailers will open this spring at 200 Rehoboth Avenue (near Dos Locos). Coastal Hobo, (previously on First Avenue), which sells high end towels, clothing, etc from Turkish cotton; and Electric Fish, a whimsical lighting retailer (currently in Penny Lane). Thank you Ann B., for that intel!
Go Delaware! Some of the world’s finest wines sold during a live online auction
last week. The event was conducted both live and online by Acker
, a New York-based auction house that recently opened a storage and auction facility in Newark, DE. The event netted $6.5 million in sales and broke 152 world auction performance records. Acker – more formally known as Acker Merrall & Condit Companies – has the oldest retail wine shop in America, dating back to 1830, and is the world’s largest wine auction house. In addition to Delaware, Acker has major auction facilities in New York and Hong Kong.

Patty Derrick, owner of Sea Shell Shops, Shell We Golf, and Shell We Bounce, emailed to let me know they are open daily, should your kids need a place to release some of that stay-at-home energy. They also have fudge special -buy two pounds and get a third pound FREE (25 flavors!) Patty assured me that they have a special machine that sucks the calories out of the free pound, so I’m headed her way!
