It’s officially fall and that means it’s time for the locals to come out in Bethany Beach! Bethany Blues is ready to welcome everyone back this fall season with amazing specials, delicious food, and all the ambiance locals have come to expect from their favorite place at the beach.
“This summer felt busier than ever,” said Tiffany Cordeaux, event coordinator for the Bethany Beach location. “So we are excited for the pace of fall that allows us to slow it down and welcome back all our familiar faces.” Cordeaux and the staff are kicking off the shoulder season with two great events, one free and one ticketed.
First up is the annual Locals Party from 5 to 9 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 23. The restaurant will close for regular service and open to the public for a customer appreciation party. The evening will highlight the food specials going into the off-season, as well as being an all-around good time for the whole family. This year will feature a photo booth, speed bingo, kids’ crafts and giveaways, and Maker’s Mark will be dipping glasses in its signature red wax.
Locals will be treated to complementary food, with a selection of featured items from upcoming off-season specials. There will also be drink specials, and plenty of good company! It’s a popular party evening in Bethany Beach, so it’s a good idea to come early to snag a good seat.
The Blue Earl Beer Dinner, a special event featuring barbecue and brews, will be held from 6 to 9 p.m., Friday, Oct. 26. The four-course meal features a variety of beers from the Blue Earl Brewery. The brewmaster from Blue Earl will be on hand to talk about the process and the featured beers of the evening which include Honey Suckle Rose (Belgian blonde ale), Clockwork Orange (fresh orange juice pale ale), Life is Good (hoppy session IPA) and Top of the World (imperial stout).
True to form, the beers will be paired with the courses, and also used in the cooking. Blues is known for its exceptional pairings and elevated barbecue-inspired dinners, and this one will be no different. It’s a terrific way to kick off the weekend, as well as the off-season, which will bring plenty of opportunities for both bourbon and beer dinners.
Tickets for the Blue Earl Beer Dinner are $40, and gratuity is not included. For more information or to purchase tickets, go to www.bethanyblues.com.
