East Coast bloggers (and bloggers from the heartland and the West Coast, if they'd like) are cordially invited to come to the first Beach Blogger Weekend at Rehoboth Beach, Delaware on November 16-17, 2002.
Two special events will give you a chance to meet and greet your fellow online writers from Richmond to New York City, and all points in between.On Saturday, November 16, from 1 pm to 3 pm, find your way to the famous Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats, 320 Rehoboth Avenue, the main street of Rehoboth Beach. We reserved the upper room, so there will be plenty of space.
After lunch, you'll have plenty of time to see the sights, walk the beach or the boardwalk, or take advantage of the tax-free shopping in downtown Rehoboth and at the Rehoboth Outlets. Link up (as it were) with some of your fellow bloggers, and enjoy the many opportunities for evening entertainment.
On Sunday, November 17, from 11 am to 1 pm, join your fellow bloggers for brunch at The Rusty Rudder, in Dewey Beach, just south of Rehoboth. We'll have our own room, and there are great views of Rehoboth Bay right next to the restaurant--with the ocean only a block away.
After brunch, spend a few more hours touring around. You'll still have plenty of time to return home Sunday evening.
Where to stay:
I made arrangements for up to 7 rooms at the Royal Rose Inn Bed & Breakfast on Baltimore Avenue, just 1 1/2 blocks from the ocean, at a special two-night rate. When you call, tell Andy or Greg that you're with the Beach Blogger Weekend Group.
In addition, the Rehoboth-Dewey Beach Chamber of Commerce offers additional help finding a hotel, motel, or B&B that will meet your needs.
Check this page for more updates on any more accommodation deals that I can come up with before the Weekend.
How to Reach Rehoboth:
The folks at Mapquest can give you directions. Type in Rehoboth Avenue, Rehoboth Beach, DE 19971 for the destination, and you shouldn't have any problems.
Just e-mail anytime.
IMPORTANT BIT OF TIMING:
Please let me know if you're coming.
One of the restaurants needs to plan ahead as soon as possible.
Hope to see you soon!
