So I know I am a couple weeks late but I have been completely swamped since getting back from Rehoboth Beach over 4th of July Weekend. Not only was it an amazing holiday weekend but Rehoboth Beach Delaware is an all new city for me. Not only did Rehoboth open and at least restart a few nightclubs, but they also really started to let the straight people back in, so besides straight rehoboth beach delaware, here are the things to do in gay rehoboth beach delaware.
Food in Rehoboth Beach Delaware:
Grubs Groceries in rehoboth beach delaware is not only open when your hangover clears, but they carry everything from fresh veggies to a deli with sandwhiches. Grubs Groceries is where I went in the morning to buy pancake mix, blueberries, olive oil, tomatoes, bacon, eggs and just about everything we needed to make a fabulous breakfast for everyone at the beach house. They also carry everything you need for food for lunch,
dinner and any other meal you want to cook. If you don’t feel like cooking out or you want to cook in then Grubs Groceries is perfect since it is located right on Rehoboth Avenue and across the street is a liqour, wine and beer store.
The Purple Parrot restaurant is one of the classic Rehoboth Beach restaurants. Not only does every gay couple or group of friends have to go their, but their cheap mimosa and bloody mary special and amazing beach food and cheap drinks are perfect for everyone. I had the lobster and crap wrap there and highly recommend it to everyone who wants a fun and filling lunch. The Purple Parrot in Rehoboth Beach is absolutely amazing and fabulous and I highly recommend it.
Dos Locos is your traditional American Mexican restaurant. Not only do they have huge margaritas, but they also cater to both gay and straight people. Dos Locos is a must have if you want Mexican food or even seafood in Rehoboth. My personal favorites at Dos Locos Rehoboth Beach are the Lobster Skins (amazing potatoe skins loaded with actual lobster meat and a bit to much old bay spice), the chicken chimichanga and the huge margaritas. You really cannot go wrong with any of the food at Dos Locos Rehoboth Beach and this is one of my personal favorites because it not only combines seafood with Mexican food but it all tastes amazing.
Zoggs Rehoboth Beach.
Ok this place is a gay nightmare. With the exception of the bucket drinks of rum cocktails and rum runners they are not gay friendly. The servers pretend to be but in reality they do not like the gays. Your drinks come late, the patrons are rude and they completely make comments. The food sucks and the atmosphere is Caribbean trailer trash sheik in a bad way. If someone recommends Zoggs Rehoboth Beach run the other way. Zoggs flat out sucks, we all got food poisoning or stomach aches and nobody liked it out of the 12 of us…well one person
did but the rest of us were very dissapointed.
Not only did I get to pick up the newest and hottest summer trend Silly Bandz at Candy Kitchen, but I also got to have fresh fudge and salt water taffy. Although I prefer Dollies taffy to candy kitchen, nothing compares to the fresh fudge and fudge flavors at Candy Kitchen. It is a must have and must do when in rehoboth beach and there are a ton of locations for you to try. Candy Kitchen also sells Silly Bandz and if you are going to Rehoboth Beach you have to buy these before you go as everyone is wearing them.
Dollies is a classic Rehoboth Beach landmark. The Dollies sign is one of the most recognizable signs and images that people think of when they think of rehoboth and their homemade candies are incredible. I love Dollies candies and if you are in Rehoboth you have to go there as well.
Grottos Pizza is a Delaware landmark pizza shop. They put the sauce on top of the pizza cheese and put it in a swirl. They have walk up beach pizza stands, a walk in restaurant and are open extremely late after all the bars close. If you are in Rehoboth Beach you have to eat at two places Grottos Pizza and Thrashers Fries.
Not only are the your normal boardwalk fries, but when you bite into your first thrashers fresh cut boardwalk fries covered in malt vinegar and salt you will understand why everyone that goes to Rehoboth Beach always has to have thrashers french fries.
What to do.
Go to Poodle Beach. Poodle Beach is the gay beach in Rehoboth. To get there all you do is walk all the way south down the end of the
boardwalk and you’ll see all the gay couples, the volleyball court and all of the music playing. You’ll see a bbq stand, shaved ice and hot men everywhere. It’s also the one beach where you’ll see barely any kids or straight people on. Poodle beach is a fabulous gay beach in Rehoboth Beach and on the east coast.
Aqua is one of the most popular gay clubs in Rehoboth Beach. It has dancing, overpriced drinks, hot servers in skimpy underwear and a huge crowd every night. Make sure you get there early or you could be stuck in line for at least half an hour. You also need to make sure that if you have to go to the bathroom you get in line fast because it builds up quickly and can take over half an hour to pee. Aqua is one of the most popular gay bars and dance clubs in Rehoboth.
Down the street from Aqua you’ll find blue moon. Blue Moon has the only official dance floor in Rehoboth. Unfortunately they have a really sucky DJ that cannot mix a song and plays some seriously stupid filler songs that are slow and ruin the mood. On a good note they pour strong drinks and when the dj plays good music you will have an awesome time. Set up like an old warehouse club Blue Moon is a fun time for almost everyone.
I didn’t really go here much but it is a restaurant that basically pushes chairs and tables out of the way to have a dance floor. nothing special and completely out of the way Cloud 9 is good if you don’t mind not having a second option of where to go to dance or are heading to the Double L for the leather crowd.
