The Summer of 2019 has been an electric whirlwind for the restaurant industry as vacationers poured into our beaches to enjoy all our area has to offer. Bethany Blues of Lewes saw another record breaking season, and asLabor Day approaches, they are gearing up to wind down just a bit. 

“We love our summers and all the buzz,” says Jessica Nathan, Direct or Operations for the Lewes Location, “but we also love September rolling in and welcoming our locals back. This year we’ve got two events lined up in September to welcome back our locals and get into the fall spirit.” 

First up is the NFL Kickoff Tailgate Party on Sunday, September 8th. Starting at 12PM, this party is celebrating the start of football season with a showdown between two regional rivals: The Redskins and the Eagles. They will be rolling out the 90” flatscreen for the 1PM kickoff, and the parking lot will be decked out with outdoor grilling, barbecue, games (like corn hole), and the Bud Light Beer Truck! 

Enjoy the outdoor fire pit, lots of games on other televisions, and the fabulous Mobile Cloud Video Trailer! This amazing media trailer has 7 additional televisions plus on site gaming, both new and old school style! And, to add the proverbial icing on the cake, Bud Light is sponsoring a giveaway of two tickets to the Jets/Eagles game on October 6th at 1PM in Philadelphia! You must be present to win. 

No one can match the grandiosity of this tailgate party, so get your football loving buns to Bethany Blues of Lewes for kickoff and say goodbye to summer and hello to pigskin season! 

Then, on Tuesday September 17th at 5PM, it’s time again for the biggest customer appreciation party in the town of Lewes: BLUESAPALOOZA! Celebrating all things Bethany Blues and saying a big “Thank you” to their loyal customers, this outdoor party is the official “welcome back” to locals for the shoulder season. 

With live music from Electric Velvet, a photo booth, Sagamore Whiskey tasting, Maker’s Mark wax dipping, Stella Artois glass etching, and more this is one party that goes all out! Blues rolls out their food trucks to give everyone a sneak peek at their off season specials as well as offering a roast-your-own s’more station, a Fordham and Dominion beer tent, outdoor bar, VIP tent, and raffles and give aways. 

Bluesapalooza is a great place to catch up with your friends you might have missed during the high season, or to make new friends to chill with this winter! 

With these two great events coming up this September, you will be feeling the fall spirit quicker than you can say “pumpkin chai latte.” So mark your calendar for the NFL Kickoff Tailgate Party on September 8th, and then again for Bluesapalooza on September 17th, and c’mon out to celebrate the end of another great summer season!
