The 2nd Annual Rehoboth Beach VegFest

Vegans, vegetarians, and lovers of veggies and all things healthy are invited to participate in the 2nd Annual Rehoboth Beach VegFest being held this weekend. The three-day event, hosted by VegRehoboth, celebrates “how easy and delicious it is to choose vegetarian foods, and the many benefits to human health, animals, and our planet.”

VegFest kicks off on Friday, June 13 with a vegetarian tasting tour at various Rehoboth restaurants and dinner at Hobo’s Restaurant followed by a screening of the documentary The Ghost in our Machine at the Atlantic Sands Hotel.

A free outdoor festival will be held on Saturday, June 14 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., at Epworth United Methodist Church. The festival features speakers, cooking demonstrations, free food samples, national and local exhibitors, kids’ activities, a nutrition tent, recipes, and local food vendors. Feel free to bring your four-legged bestie - the VegFest is pet-friendly and treats will be on hand (or rather, on paw).

The celebration wraps up on Sunday, June 15 with a special brunch at Nage Restaurant, featuring several guest speakers. So whether you are already a devout vegan or interested in learning more about switching to a vegan diet and living a healthier lifestyle, this is a “can’t-miss” event.

Make Mother's Day Memories in Rehoboth Beach

Mothers Day in Rehoboth

WE LOVE MOMS! What better way to show Mom the love than by taking her for a beach getaway. Mother’s Day weekend is a great time here in Rehoboth Beach. It’s still early enough in the season that the crowds are minimal and you can find great deals on just about anything. Not to mention the weather is nice enough to stroll the boardwalk, buzz around town, go for a bike ride, or even dip your toes in the ocean.

You already know that the dining possibilities in Rehoboth are endless. There is a cuisine and price point to suit everyone. Lavish Mom with an extravagant dinner, take her for a more casual lunch date, or just keep it laid back with a slice and a cold one. 

If she likes to shop, you'll have no trouble finding something as beautiful and special as she is. A new outfit, a gorgeous bauble, a stellar bottle of wine, a sweet treat, a unique piece of art - we can’t stress it enough - the shopping in town is phenomenal.

Or perhaps treat her to a day of pampering at one of the many day spas in the area. What gal can say no to a relaxing day filled with massages, mani/pedis and a soothing facial?

But no matter what you get her, there really is no better gift than just spending time with Mom. There is so much to see and do, and priceless memories are waiting to be made right here in Rehoboth Beach.

Stay with us for a two-night Mother’s Day weekend special. Click here for full details.

A Little Italian Charm in the Heart of Rehoboth Beach: Lupo di Mare

Sherri Martin - Thursday, April 24, 2014
Lupo di Mare Restaurant

Lupo di Mare may translate to "Wolf of the Sea" - a metaphor for a grizzled old sailor - but make no mistake, the charming restaurant in no way embodies its namesake. It's equal parts light, airy and cozy. Manager Mike Dickinson gives us the scoop on some amazing off-season dinner specials and fills us in on wine imported exclusively to the restaurant from Conti di San Bonifacio, an award winning Tuscan Vineyard.

Dinner specials run Sunday through Thursday with a different seafood featured monthly. April is Catfish Month featuring local blue catfish served piccata-style with spinach and angel hair pasta. Come in on Thursday for half-priced bottles of wine and pair your meal with one of the four varieties from Conti di San Bonifacio. For red lovers choose from Sangiovese, Syrah or a Cabernet Franc blend; if sparkling white is your thing, try the Prosecco. All produce is sourced locally and all desserts are created in-house. And if you are just looking to unwind with a glass of vino and a small bite, belly up to the quaint corner bar for happy hour which runs daily from 5-7pm.

But don't delay your visit to Lupo di Mare - these off-season specials end May 18. The restaurant is open daily at 5pm.
