April 2024 Newsletter

Updated: Apr 1



And... So It Begins


Jim Mease

 

And ... So It Begins. April 2024 is here, and having shed the last vestiges of winter, Spring has sprung, bringing with it warmer weather. April comes from the Latin word aperio which means to open. It is commonly believed that the word refers to the season when trees and flowers begin to open or bloom. Of course, here in Rehoboth Beach, as well as elsewhere on the East Coast of the US, it is also a time to get ready for another Beach Season. As you are out and about this month you will see all types of activity as businesses prepare to open for the season. A certain excitement hangs in the air as new and old restaurants advertise opening dates and publish updated menus in anticipation of the crowds, who we know will be back in a couple of weeks, lured by the sun, sand, and surf. Shops will be receiving new merchandise and redoing their window displays in an attempt to entice residents and visitors alike to come inside and take a look.

 

The town will come alive as everyone is out and about checking out the new stores and visiting the beach and boardwalk while sprucing up their respective areas. Don't miss the chance to enjoy live music and fun while you try some of the best Gumbo in Rehoboth Beach at the Gumbo Crawl on Saturday April 6th from 12:00 noon until 4:00pm at participating restaurants across town. Tickets are $20 and available at the RBMS Office 509 Rehoboth Avenue or by calling 302-227-2772. Then on Sunday April 21st prepare to be dazzled by stunning looks from Rehoboth's finest boutiques at the Runway 2024 Formal Style Fashion Show from 4:30–7:00pm at the Rehoboth Beach Convention Center. Discover the latest trends in formal wear and find the perfect outfit for your next big event!   

Spotlighted businesses this month include a restaurant and two retail shops for you to enjoy as the weather turns warmer and we long to be outdoors. First up is Federal Rehoboth Restaurant located at 62A Rehoboth Avenue just a short block from the Boardwalk. It is a full-service beach casual fine dining bistro that will satisfy all. If running is your thing be sure and stop by the Rehoboth Beach Running Company at 301 Rehoboth Avenue for the latest in running shoes and sneakers along with other running accessories. For those picture-perfect days on the beach stop by the Rehoboth Toy and Kite Company at 70 Rehoboth Avenue for a wide range of amazing, mind boggling toys and kites of all sizes and shapes to help you make the most of your beach experience.

 

Don't miss our member reviews about their visit to each of the establishments spotlighted this month later in this Newsletter and on our website. We encourage you to stop in and visit each of these businesses and while there tell them you read about them in the RBMS Newsletter. And remember parking is still free for the month of April in downtown Rehoboth Beach.  Please be mindful of the runners, walkers and bicyclists who will out enjoying the warm spring weather.  And... So It Begins.

Showcasing Rehoboth Beach Businesses

 

Rehoboth Running Company

Peter Beck



The first few days of Spring are finally here.  Daylight savings time has arrived, dandelions and crocuses are blooming, and it’s time to get a bright new pair of kicks perfect for the warmer weather. Luckily, the Rehoboth Running Company at 301 Rehoboth Avenue is ready to meet your needs! Whether you are a marathoner, a triathlon athlete, or a beginner wanting to tone up for summer, you can find the perfect shoe at the store!

 

By perusing their website at www.runrb.com, you will see what I mean! Looking for a pair of shoes that fits perfectly?  At the shop, you can have a custom gait analysis, have your needs assessed, and receive tips to help you achieve your fitness goals.  Even better, no appointment is necessary to receive outstanding personalized one-on-one service!

 

In addition, the website is chock full of information about running and exercise. In addition to items to purchase, you can learn about all sorts of opportunities for racing and socializing with other runners in the Delmarva area. You can even discover many tips and then click on dozens of other websites to help you with proper form, nutrition, and recovery after your run. 

 

Once you get to the store, you will find a wide variety of workout shoes from some of the most noteworthy manufacturers such as Asics, Brooks, Hoka, and SauxonySaucony.  The shop also features biking, swimming, and athletic gear as well as apparel for runners of all ages. If you need running accessories or want a great sale, look no further than The Rehoboth Running Company! 

​​

Owner Mary Hutton explained that she opened her shop because when she moved to Rehoboth, there wasn’t a store that specialized in running gear for people who participated in long-distance running.  Even though she did not have a retail background, she consulted other running store owners and opened her shop in 2007. Luckily for us, the result is an ideal shop for athletes of all shapes and sizes! 

 

Current hours are 10:00am–6:00pm on Monday, Thursday, and Friday; on Saturday the hours are from 10:00am–4:00pm, and on Sundays from 10:00am–2:00pm. So, get on over there, find the perfect shoe, and start running!

 

Rehoboth Toy & Kite Company

Mark May

 


As the coast once again begins to drift back toward springtime, and the days warm and lengthen, there is one particular shop in downtown Rehoboth Beach that comes to mind. Whether you choose to visit them at 1 Virginia Avenue or 70-A Rehoboth Avenue, Rehoboth Toy & Kite Company will keep you entertained no matter what your outdoor adventure might be.

 

Whether the change in the weather signals a return to your garden or a day at the beach, Rehoboth Toy & Kite Company has you covered. With garden decorations, ornaments, flags, windsocks, and an array of wind mobiles and chimes, you will be able to transform your garden or outdoor living space into a true oasis this season. And if you are looking for a supplier for your beach day, look no further!

 

Rehoboth Toy & Kite Company’s location on the boardwalk makes it easy to stop in, browse, and let the day take you where it may. If the weather is favorable, purchase one of their famous kites and join the dozens of other fliers as they take to the skies. There is no lack of options when it comes to kites, and a quick glance up can confirm this! If kites aren’t quite for you then there are plenty of other options. Their array of beach toys and sandcastle equipment is perfect for a family beach day to keep everyone involved and creating. And don’t forget to check out their souvenirs to commemorate your day, vacation, or visit.

 

With an impressive selection guaranteed to please visitors of all types, Rehoboth Toy & Kite Company has something for everyone. But what really turns this shop into a landmark is the friendly staff and owners. Whether it’s welcoming you in, answering questions, or even explaining and playing some of the shop’s games with you, Rehoboth Toy & Kite truly blurs the lines between shopping and playing. Stop by either of their two locations in downtown Rehoboth or give them a call at 302-227-6996.

 

 The Federal

Peter Beck



Since opening at 62A Rehoboth Avenue, The Federal has become a mainstay of the Rehoboth Beach dining scene. Chef Todd Gray, a five-time James Beard Award nominee, and his wife/business partner, Ellen Kassoff, also own and operate Equinox on 19th in Washington DC, for almost 25 years. Equinox is well known for its mid-Atlantic seasonal fine dining.

 

Luckily for us, in 2019, Ellen and Todd expanded their business to “the Nation’s Summer Capital.” Originally slated to be a food truck, their plans were interrupted by COVID, and the couple made the classic pandemic small business pivot by turning that idea into a charming beach bistro in 2020. The Federal has been a popular dining spot ever since; check out their menu at  https://www.thefederalrehoboth.com/ to see all of the options.

 

While it's fun to enjoy fritters while window shopping on the avenue or strolling down to the boardwalk, soon after opening in the permanent location, the Federal expanded its menu to include more than just delicious, crisp fritters. The dinner menu, offered after five o’clock, now features tasty choices that represent the culinary traditions of the mid-Atlantic region. Diners rave about the lobster bisque, the poached pear burrata salad, bouillabaisse, scallops, and the hangar steak. 

 

Customers enjoy a cozy ambiance at The Federal that makes them feel like guests in Ellen and Todd's home rather than mere diners in a restaurant.

 

During the off-season, the Federal has been organizing a monthly event called "Spirit Dinner" for the past three years. It's a unique experience for our beach community where diners get to enjoy a special four-course meal prepared by Chef Gray and Chef d' Cuisine Andrew Guffey. Ellen, the spirit guru, carefully selects spirits and creates cocktails that perfectly pair with the meal. Unfortunately, the April spirit dinner is sold out, but there has been a whisper that a new one will be added in May: You heard it here first! You can also look forward to the opportunity of enjoying the spirit dinner season next fall.

Looking for something to do on an April afternoon...

 



Rehoboth Beach Then and Now—Take a self-guided walking tour on the Built Story mobile app! Tour takers can explore downtown Rehoboth Beach and learn about the 19th century religious summer camp, how the fires and storms shaped the community, the transformative impact of the railroad, and the illustrious citizens who made Rehoboth Beach what it is today. The app is available from either Android or iPhone app stores for free. The 15-stop tour of downtown focuses on how the city evolved from its 19th century roots as a rural community, the arrival of the summer religious camp in the 1870s, the arrival of the railroad, and the “battles” between the “saints and sinners” that influenced the later development of the community.

 

The Built Story mobile app is free and tickets for each tour are $10.00. Tickets for individual tours are good for 30 days and may be viewed more than once. The Built Story app is also your gateway to other tours around the world. Half of the proceeds from this tour benefit Rehoboth Beach Main Street.

City Update



Adapted from the City of Rehoboth Beach “Lines in the Sand,” March 22, 2024.

 

City Adopts $38.6 Million FY25 Budget, Increases Fees 

 

The Rehoboth Beach Board of Commissioners has adopted a $38.6 million budget for fiscal year 2025, which begins April 1. The city’s FY25 budget has a focus on infrastructure investments, with approximately $10 million appropriated for capital improvements, as well as appropriate staff resourcing, providing for raises as indicated by a compensation and classification study, increasing health insurance costs, and several new positions.

 

In order to balance the budget, commissioners voted on March 15 in favor of: 

·        Committing to an anticipated 29% property tax increase, from $0.06/$100 of assessed value to $0.0775/$100; a vote on the property tax rate is expected at commissioners’ May or June regular meeting

·        A 28% increase in wastewater meter fees from $14.70/1,000 gallons to $18.81/1,000 gallons to fund ongoing improvements at the city’s wastewater treatment facility

·        Anticipated increases in mercantile license fees resulting in a projected additional $138,000 in revenue.

 

Previously, commissioners adopted additional rate increases, including:

·        An increase in hourly meter parking fees during the season from $3 to $4 per hour

·        An approximately 30% increase in parking permit fees

·        An increase in the rental tax rate, for contracts entered into after April 1, from 6% to 7%.

 

“This has been an extremely challenging budget year,” says Mayor Stan Mills. “We’ve had to make some really tough decisions.”

 

“The increases adopted,” he adds, “impact a range of city stakeholders, including our residents, businesses, and our visitors. These increases are necessary to ensure that we have a highly functioning, appropriately resourced government that provides the outstanding level of service our residents and visitors have come to expect. The adopted budget appropriately invests significantly in our staff and in needed capital improvements.”In addition to providing for salary increases and a 27% increase in health insurance costs, the adopted budget allows for several new staff positions, including a reorganization of the police department that will result in a new deputy chief position and the hiring of two new entry-level patrol officers. Another dispatcher position has been added in the 911 communications center. In addition, two part-time positions have been added: a deputy city clerk and communications specialist.

 

 

DNREC Addresses Deauville Beach Transition Questions

 

The Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control has put together answers to many of residents’ frequently asked questions related to the department’s assumption of management of Deauville Beach.

 

DNREC is currently evaluating the parking fee for Deauville Beach. It is expected that daily entrance fees will be established and begin being charged sometime before Memorial Day weekend. DNREC hosted a virtual meeting on Wednesday, March 27, during which they presented their entrance fee proposal.
