The party lives on all winter in Dewey Beach

November 2, 2018

The Starboard will host its world-famous closing party weekend from Friday to Sunday, Nov. 2 to 4. But as one season draws to a close, another is just beginning, and Dewey Beach is a great hot spot in the cold months.

Steve “Monty” Montgomery, owner of The Starboard, is stoked about the shoulder season and ready to welcome everyone to the Shark Tank. He said, “Winter in Dewey is great because it’s a smaller, local crowd, and the Shark Tank is open, Starboard RAW is open all winter, as well as lots of other businesses in Dewey, which are now open year-round.” Montgomery said it’s the perfect time to come out and a share great food with friends, while the crowds have subsided.

Winter at the beach has come a long way from just 10 years ago when whole towns along the coast shut down for the winter months. While tourism slows considerably, the local population comes out enough to warrant businesses keeping their doors open. Montgomery and many of his fellow restaurant owners in Dewey know fostering that local connection is a cornerstone to their success.

Dewey Beer Company, Woody’s Bar & Grill, Gary's Dewey Beach Grill, Sunrise Restaurant, Hammerheads, Dewey Beach Country Club, Sirveza and MezCali are all staying open this winter in Dewey Beach to offer locals the same great food and service they boast all year long.

The Shark Tank will be open Thursday through Sunday all winter long. Come out for bingo every Thursday when the Starboard staff dresses up and keeps the comedy coming all night while auctioning off random prizes. Starboard RAW will be open every day all winter serving amazing craft cocktails and an outstanding menu.
