Okay, so I know this is supposed to be the weekend update, but there’s one cool event going on tomorrow, so I’m throwing that in here too! Here are my weekend suggestions:
Thursday, July 26th – Best of Delaware Party
Head up to Dover for a celebration of Delaware Today’s annual Best of Delaware issue. The Best of Delaware Party is a fun event that celebrates the state’s favorites but also raises money for charity. Year after year it continues to be super popular. Tickets are $55 in advance or $70 at the door and the event takes place at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino (1131 North DuPont Hwy in Dover), so you can make a weekend of it! The party is from 6pm-9pm, although you can purchase a ticket for the VIP preview party that begins at 5pm. Tickets for the VIP party are $75 and must be purchased in advance. There is an after party beginning at 9pm at Fire & Ice. In addition to exhibitors from across the state, several local favorites will be represented including Abbott’s Grill, Baywood Greens, Candy Kitchen Shoppes, Dogfish Head Brewery, and Grotto Pizza!
