The restaurant scene at the Delaware beaches has grown to such an extent that you can find a flavor, price point or dish to meet virtually any need. For proof, consider some of my recent excursions along the coast. just added a patio that wraps around one corner of the Victorian house-turned-restaurant. We snagged a seat with a view of the Zwaanendael Museum and the Zwaanedael Club. When owner Meghan Lee started the restaurant, the kitchen was run by Chef Jordan Miller, who has since moved to Utah.
At the Delaware beaches, happy hour has all the festivity—and often the frenzy—of a college town. The distinct difference, though, is that many establishments along the Culinary Coast tailor their specials to more discerning palates. They go beyond discounted nachos or hummus plates, making the food as much of a draw as the drinks. Here are four of my favorite spots for memorable libations and noshes. Arrive early!
Since opening in 2004, The Blue Crab has become Bethany’s go-to place for juicy steamed crabs. It doesn’t hurt that the restaurant is two blocks from the boardwalk. The décor sets the tone. There are pencil drawings by Baltimore-based Jonathan Brown (dubbed Maryland’s “crab artist”), oil paintings by Bethany Beach artist Jennifer Carter and photographs by Michael Orhelein. The Blue Crab now has a full bar and raw bar, thanks to the adjoining Bethany Oyster House.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
