With the holiday’s right around the corner, the Eastern Shore is gearing up for the 2014 Christmas shopping season. This year, Shorebread isn’t just focusing on Ocean City… we’re heading north to one of our favorite areas to shop…Rehoboth Beach, Delaware! Year-round we love heading to the beach-side town to peruse their selection of stores, but what better time to do it than during the 4th Annual Cocoa Crawl. Rehoboth Beach is hosting the event on Friday, November 7th from 5PM to 8PM and everyone is invited. For three hours, shoppers will enjoy special discounts in participating stores while noshing on local restaurants’ desserts, fall treats and drinks.

44 of the Downtown Rehoboth stores are participating and each of them have their own assigned restaurants where they will offer yummy treats, drinks and more. There is a $10 admission fee to participate in this charitable event, which includes a chance to win a $1,000 grand prize drawing. The drawing will take place at 8PM in the First Street Station Courtyard and make sure you’re there for the pick. You can buy tickets for the event at Azura, South Moon Under, Heidi Lowe Gallery, White House Black Market, and the Rehoboth Beach Main Street Office or online at: www.downtownrb.com.

The 4th Annual Cocoa Crawl benefits two non-profit organizations, the Rehoboth Beach Museum and Rehoboth Beach Main Street. Getting to enjoy our favorite stores and restaurants in the same location? We couldn’t think of a better way to kick off the gift giving season. Some of our Shorebread favorites that are participating are:

  • South Moon Under- partnering with Lipo Di Mare. (One of our favorite Matt Haley restaurants!)
  • White House Black Market- partnering with Cellar Door.
  • Avenue Apothecary and Spa- partnering with Hobos.
  • Bella Luna- partnering with Nage.
  • Blooming Boutique- partnering with both Lula Brazil and Summer House.
  • Azura- partnering with Hobos and Bad Hair Day.
  • In2 Soles- partnering with Papa Grande’s.

The list goes on, trust us.

So kick off the holiday season with the 4th Annual Cocoa Crawl, Shorebread will be there to get the inside scoop on all these fabulous businesses and their future winter plans. It seems the fun doesn’t end there either, for the first time ever, Rehoboth Beach Main Street is presenting the Downtown Poker Crawl. All day on Saturday, November 8th you can play poker and collect cards from each participating downtown restaurant and at the end of the night, show your hand at the Greene Turtle at 8PM- the best hand wins! If chosen… you will receive hundreds in gift cards to local businesses. (Restaurants- Arenas, Dos Locos, Jam, Eden, Espuma, Fins, Jake’s, Lula Brazil Mixx, Greene Turtle, DE Distilling Co.)

We are so excited for this fun filled weekend in Rehoboth… join us!
